The Past Blast: When Ajay Devgn, Sanjay Dutt and Milan Luthria’s movie was shelved due to Non Veg food
The trio were ready to collaborate on Bihaad .. Outlawed, a film inspired by real events, with Devgn and Dutt playing the roles of a dacoit and a cop. But what is wrong? Find
The Ajay Devgn and Milan Luthria combo have worked together on films like Kachche Dhaage, Chori Chori, Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai and Baadshaho. The professional front aside, the two are great friends too and have been spotted even outside of the world on camera. But few people know that in the early 2000s the two were all set to collaborate in the early 2000s on a film called Bihaad… Outlawed. It was based on a true story, about the harsh reality of life, but had to follow a business model.
The creators intended to shoot in rural areas in the jungles of Madhya Pradesh and the Chambal Valley. Besides Ajay Devgn, Sanjay Dutt was also a part of the film, and it was set to be a quintessential hero versus villain movie, with the two playing the character of dacoit and a cop. It was to be produced by Kumar Gaurav, Bunty Walia and Bablu Pachisia. It was billed as one of the most anticipated films at the time due to the casting coup by getting two big stars of mass action in one thrilling film, by a great director.
Bablu Pachisia was appalled to see non-vegetarian food in his office and impulsively lambasted Milan Luthria in front of all the office staff. This led to a war of words between the two
But he was suddenly pushed aside. However, many are unaware of the reason the film was put on the back burner. An insider informs us that the reason the film was put on the shelves was as ridiculous as it gets. One of the film producers, Bablu Pachisia, was a die-hard vegetarian and non-vegetarian food was not allowed in his office. One fine day, Milan went to his office to discuss the pre-production work and since it was lunchtime, the filmmaker decided to have lunch in the canteen. Incidentally, he ordered non-vegetarian food and just as he started to eat it, Bablu came along.
The producer was appalled to see non-vegetarian food in his office and impulsively blew up Milan in front of all the office staff. This led to a war of words between the two and ultimately things turned from bad to worse which led to the film being put on the shelves. Years later, Bablu went to tell his close friends how he could have handled the script better and the impulse response was just an overreaction. But hey, Bihaad… Outlawed is still a distant dream for Milan Luthira. He tried to revive it several times later, but things never materialized.
