I have good news and bad news. First, the good news. As mentioned in my last post, I have submitted the rewritten screenplay to SEEZAN this evening. Bad news is, as the title suggests, the production of VAFAATHERI KEHIVERIYAA has been delayed, indefinitely.
It came to me as a big shock since only few days back, SEEZAN was so eager to start production early next month. He even planned to unveil the cast somewhere around end of this month. He also released a teaser trailer which was shown at the screening of his current production, KARUNAVEE BEYVAFAA (TEARS TURNED UNFAITHFUL).
Why the delay, it’s vague. But I think the main reason was not being able to release the film this year since the one and only cinema for Dhivehi movies is fully booked for the remaining months. So he thought would be a waste of good money to have VAFAATHERI KEHIVERIYAA made with a hefty budget and not making instant money out of it until next year. Even I felt commercial disaster written all over it.
Regardless of the delay or what he’s going to produce next, I have asked him to approve the screenplay of VAFAATHERI KEHIVERIYAA as soon as possible since I want to move on to my next project. He’s going to meet me with his feedback after two days.
I just can’t wait to bid farewell to VAFAATHERI KEHIVERIYAA. My next project awaits…
