MUMBAI: After the Neeraj Pathak-directed Sunny Deol-starrer Bhaiyyaji Superhit ran into hurdles that led to the cancellation of the shoot, Subash Ghai has stepped in to produce the film.
Ghai‘s Mukta Arts will now be co-producing the film in association with Nikon Films. Earlier, the film was being produced by Fauzia Arshi under the banner of Daily Multimedia Ltd.
Confirming his association in the venture as producer, Ghai said, "We will produce Bhaiyyaji Superhit in association with Nikon Films (that had earlier produced Black and White). The terms and conditions are currently being finalised."
It is learnt that Ghai has been having good relations with Pathak after the latter directed Mukta Arts‘ 2010 film Right Yaaa Wrong.
The film, that has Sunny Deol in a double role for the first time, also stars Mithun Chakraborty, Ameesha Patel and Arshad Warsi.
The film is expected to release later this year.
