Mumbai: Bollywood filmmaker Vipul Shah is fuming! Ever since Akshay Kumar and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan left his dream project ‘Action Replay’ halfway for other commitments, Shah is desperately seeking the stars for dates, so as to finish the film as soon as possible.

Talking to a news daily, a source said that Vipul Shah urgently requires Aishwarya’s dates to shoot a song in ‘Action Replay.’ However, due to her packed schedule and past commitments, the actress is unable to allocate the required dates. Likewise, Akshay Kumar is currently shooting for Nikhil Advani’s ‘Patalia House’ in London.

According to the source, "Vipul is in a fix because both stars are busy with their other projects. Even when they were shooting, getting dates was a big hassle. Now, Vipul is left with no other option but to wait till Ash gives the dates or do away with the shoot."

By the way, the issue cropped up when Aishwarya got busy with the promotions of ‘Raavan’, followed by her famous Cannes visit.

"Vipul was upset because Ash put her other commitments before his film. He wanted her dates before she began the ‘Raavan’ promotion, but that didn`t happen," the source added.
