Jhootha Hi Sahi may be postponed by one week

THERE's a strong possibility that Jhootha Hi Sahi (due to release on Friday, October 15) may be postponed by one week.

The film may now arrive on October 22 because music composer AR Rahman is yet to complete recording the movie's background score. Producer Madhu Mantena doesn't rule out the possibility. "Yes, the film may get shifted to next week. It's true that Rahman hasn't completed recording the background score.

"Also, with two major films clashing on October 15 (Aakrosh, Knock Out) there's no point releasing on that date. Besides, the music of Jhootha Hi Sahi is picking up and if we shift the film ahead by one week, it will only help the music to grow further," Mantena states.

If Jhootha Hi Sahi is shifted to latter date, Madhu Mantena will hold the distinction of releasing four films on a single Friday - Jhootha Hi Sahi and the three versions of Rakht Charitra (in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu).

Bollywood Hungama News Network reports that Jhootha Hi Sahi is one of the most eagerly awaited films of this year.

Starring John Abraham, the film, directed by Abbas Tyrewala, is the story of a compulsive liar who lies left, right and centre.

Pakhi's wife is paired opposite Abraham in this film with a host of supporting actors such as Raghu Ram, Manasi Scott and Anahita Nair.

However, besides the above-mentioned names there is a surprise element. One would also get to see R.Madhavan and Nandana Sen in guest appearances in the film. In fact, there were talks that even Kajol would be seen in the film.

What's more, the film's official website also mentions her name as part of the cast. However, when Bollywood Hungama News Network contacted producer Madhu Mantena, he confirmed Maddy and Nandana Sen's presence in the film but denied the rumour that Kajol is in the film.

Ahead of its release Jhootha Hi Sahi has apparently run into troubled waters.

Apparently, the popular Hollywood production house, Warner Bros, has demanded a screening of the film, claiming that the film in question is a rip-off of their television series Friends. However, the producers of the film are finding this claim ridiculous.

Sources close to the matter |told Bollywood Hungama News Network that apparently the |film's producer Madhu Mantena received a call from the company's officials saying that the film was similar to Friends, but Mantena explained that the claim was untrue as the film had nothing to do with the series.

However, the company insisted and has now asked for a trial, failing which it will sue the producers.
