It is difficult to digest when more than half of the movie is already shot, some are even completely shot but then the money of the investors, time and mind of the crew gets wasted as it never released!
These are the movies which did not make their way to the silver screen in spite of being completed:
1) Time Machine (1992):
The movie was being made under the direction of ‘Shekhar Kapur’, which had a very strong and new star cast – Aamir Khan, Naseeruddin Shah and Raveena Tandon. 3/4th of the film was shot, the theme of the movie was based on time travel but then, unfortunately, Hollywood called.
2) Sarfarosh (1979):
Manmohan Desai and Amitabh Bachchan had a very strong rapport in the industry at that time. This time the actor was seen as a convict in the movie along with lots of talented actors like Rishi Kapoor, Parveen Babi, Shakti Kapoor and Kader Khan. But the movie did not hit theatres due to reasons unknown.
3) Deva (1987):
Amitabh Bachchan and director Subhash Ghai were all set to create the magic on screen for the very first time. The duo shot for a week and both of them had ego clashes and the movie was shelved.
4) Dus (1996):
Imagine Salman Khan and Sanjay Dutt playing as Indian agents in the movie. Director Mukul Anand’s ‘Dus’ was based on the Indian agents who are working to stop an India-Pakistan war, but the director died a very untimely death and the film was left as it is.
5) Khuda Gawah (1978):
For the very first time actor, Amitabh Bachchan was supposed to be playing the role of a cowboy. The shooting of ‘Khuda Gawah’ started but after some days it was temporarily stopped, but then with passing time it was stopped permanently and the title was used for a 1992 movie ‘Khuda Gawah’ starring Bachchan and Sridevi.
So many things we don’t know about the film industry!
