sanjay_guptaMumbai, Oct 24 (IANS) Sanjay Gupta postponed the shooting of 'Alibaug' because he was not happy with the set that veteran art director Bijon Dasgupta designed.

'I needed a set depicting the house in 'Alibaug' where I was supposed to shoot. I asked Bijon to erect the set in Madh Island. In his own way, Bijon did a fantastic job. But it wasn't what I had in mind,' Gupta told IANS.

Gupta, who was on a shopping spree for his new bungalow in Goa, used furniture, artefacts and knick-knacks meant for his Goan house to give the desired look to the set.

'Fortunately, I had been house-shopping for myself for the past few weeks because I had bought myself a dream villa in Goa. It was the ideal home that I had been looking for in Goa for years. When I saw it I knew I wanted it.

'That was only part of the operation makeover. A majority of my stuff from my bungalow in Mumbai (Woodstock) has also been carted to the set. With the result that my place of residence looks pretty bare right now whereas my place of work resembles my home. Since 'Alibaug' is a very personalised film, I don't mind.'

The film, about friendship and memories, has a host of stars - Diya Mirza, Manasi Joshi Roy, Masumeh, Parveen Dabas, Rohit Roy, Sudhanshu Pandey, Sameer Soni, Sanjay Suri, Sophie Choudry and Sanjay Dutt.
