Leicester Square Not Big Enough for Two!

The production team of 1-800-Love was thrilled when the British authorities gave them permission to shoot some integral scenes for the movie at the renowned Leicester Square in London from May 11th. However, their permission was revoked when Russell Crowe decided to hold a premiere for his movie Robin Hood at Leicester Square as well.

Producer Abbas Tyrewala tried to explain to the authorities that they would be done with their shoot long before the premiere, but the British authorities were apparently unwilling to co-operate.

Abbas cannot afford to postpone the shoot, because of the inconveniences associated with getting the required visas and work permits for the whole team. As such, he is searching for another location in London that can fulfill his purpose.

There have been obstacles delaying the production and shooting of this John Abraham starer even before. With this one adding to the woes, the project sure seems somewhat jinxed. Of course considering Abbas had prior permission to commence his work compared to Crowe and co., one sure seems to get vibes of unprofessionalism on the part of authorities.

Whatever the cause, we sure hope Abbas can find a way around, and hope that the movie wraps up production soon!

    The pic doesn't look like leicester square! Leicester square hasn't got offices or buildings..it's the area with broadway shows, expensive restaurants, china town etc. Tbh I can't think of any other place that is similar to leicester square in london so good luck to abbas tyrewala trying to find something similar. :S

    LOL this is London! It's not about Bollywood or Hollywood it's about which will generate more publicity and money. And frankly, an Indian Director saying he'll be done on time if not well before... now that's a good joke!
