Mahesh Bhatt who had taken retirement from film direction has apparently returned to it with Jashn. This move however was not by choice but out of despair. The buzz is that though the film is officially directed by Raksha Mistry and Hasnain S. Hyderabadwala, Apparently, Mahesh was displeased with the standard of direction and hence stepped in to save the film.
Jashn which stars Adhyayan Suman and Anjana Sukhani has almost been completed, if that's not enough we hear that the Bhatt even edited the script of the film so as to make it more engaging.
When Bollywood Hungama spoke to some reliable sources who are working on the film, they cleared stated the Mahesh Bhatt has directed Jashn. "Yes, Maheshji has directed the entire film. This happened as he was not happy with Raksha and Hasnain's work with the direction," said the source.
While on the other hand when we contacted Raksha Mistry, she had a different story to tell. "That story is absolutely false. In fact I have received several messages from Maheshji saying that he has been misquoted. While as far as the direction is concerned, I did request Maheshji to help with a few scenes as they were highly emotional and who better than Bhatt saab to direct them," she stated.
Further more, we also asked her about the changes in the script to which Raksha said, "The script will never be changed once the film has hit the floors and has completed so much. No normal person will do this, leave aside Maheshji changing the script." And were the music videos for the film have been directed by Mohit? "Yes, the music videos have been directed by Mohit as he is one of the best that I know of when it comes to making videos. This was a production decision that was arrived upon much before we even started the shoot. So at the end of it, Hasnain and I are still the directors of the film."
