The delay of a certain film titled Chittagong
upset Anurag Kashyap
more than anyone else.
This movie was made somewhere along the lines of recently released Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey
stars Deepika Padukone and Abhishek Bachchan
as the leads. According to
Kashyap, the former
movie had to be delayed owing just one call from
Amithab Bachchan; who apparently talked the rival contenders out of
releasing their project before or alongside his son's, reasoning that KHJJS
had much better actors and its cost was also high.Tsk! Not done, Big B!
though Anurag is in no way involved or linked with the movie
Chittagong, he was quite upset that the producers would let Amitabh
delay their movie just so that Big B's son would be a success without
competition. (And perhaps a trading cost, we wonder?)
Anurag's voicing of this particular dissent did not sit well with Sr.
Bachchan who has expressed his own belief in where Anurag stands
incorrect. Summarily disposing the controversy, he stated that there was
no point discussing this matter further.
Perhaps not, for Mr. Bachchan. One can't help but think nonetheless, that Anurag sure has a point. What were the lesser movie makers thinking delaying their project?!
