As reported by Mumbai Mirror, Pandey put a hold on Crack because he was not happy with the script of the film. The director confirmed the same and said the film didn’t go on hold because of any alleged rift with Akshay but he simply didn’t feel like going ahead with it when he himself wasn’t happy with the script in the first place. Pandey was quoted saying, “It’s on the back-burner with no immediate plans of revival. I was not happy with the script, but if I manage to crack something good in the future, I might (revive it).” Addressing the claims of falling apart with Akshay, Pandey said he is currently busy with Chanakya that features Ajay Devgn and Akshay is busy with other projects at hand. He added that both he and Akshay have individual responsibilities towards the audience and they don’t want to team up for something just for the sake of it.
