Ekta Kapoor is known to be a hard taskmaster. And now there is one more instance. The producer has ordered a reshoot of several portions of her upcoming sequel to Once Upon A Time In Mumbai, directed by Milan Luthria. The film stars Akshay Kumar, Imran Khan and Sonakshi Sinha.
A crew member informs, "After seeing the rushes, Ekta sent a message to Milan that several portions of the film, especially the climax, needed to be reworked. The director argued that it did not gel with his vision."
The source adds, "Akshay too feels a reshoot is necessary. This has further strengthened Ekta's cause to call the shots and ensure that Milan does a reshoot."
Incidentally, her last production Ek Thi Daayan was also reshot. Ekta had severe creative differences with co-producer Vishal Bharadwaj over the issue.
