Putting an end to all the speculation over the future of 'Naughty At 40', actor Govinda resumed shooting for director Jagmohan Mundhra's movie this week.
'It was never Govinda's fault that the shooting had halted. We had some production problems which have now been sorted out. Govinda has never been troublesome. For a 3 p.m. shift he arrives at 2.30 p.m,' Mundhra said.
He said it is time the industry realised that they are in the throes of a recession. 'Actors within the industry have realised it and are working accordingly. There are reports of how Govinda has been troubling my project 'Naughty At 40'. But the truth is that the project being in trouble has nothing to do with Govinda. On the contrary, he has been unfailingly disciplined and punctual.'
The shooting is now taking place in Punjab.
'We shoot for 25 days and the film will be done. The days of stretching a film and its budget are over. Stars now need to cut their prices and give their dates at a stretch. It's the only way to work.'
