Sonam Kapoor’s date diary might go haywire due to the delay in the shoot of the film Mausam. So, the actress sent an SOS to her dear dad Anil Kapoor to step in and sort the matter out.

Mausam which is her first romantic film opposite Bollywood’s heartthrob Shahid Kapoor is getting delayed and the actress is facing date problems to shoot her other film Thank You, where she is working for the first time opposite Akshay Kumar. She has already given 140 days to Mausam and is reportedly also required to shoot for another 20 days. On the other hand, Thank You is approaching completion and she is needed there too.

So, what is the reason for the slow progress of Mausam?
As per sources, the delay is because of director Pankaj Kapoor’s working style. Though a fine director and a stickler for perfection, he takes time to shoot simple sequences. “Pankaj has turned out to be a fine director. But he’s an old-school technician. He takes time setting up his shots, getting the lighting ready etc,” a source is quoted as saying by a tabloid.

Hard-pressed for time, Sonam has brought up the matter with her father, and Anil will soon meet Pankaj to discuss the issue. In fact, producer of the film Sheetal Talwar has invited both the Kapoors for dinner to discuss ‘serious issues’.

Shahid too has kept himself exclusive to the film and not signed a single movie last year as he wanted to concentrate on his father’s maiden project. Mausam is slated to release this July 22.
