Is Amitabh pulling strings to save Abhishek’s career

Anurag Kashyap blames Big B

Film-maker Anurag Kashyap has stirred up a controversy by claiming that Amitabh Bachchan used his clout to delay a film that’s based on Chittagong revolt so that son Abhishek Bachchan’s film Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey could get enough eyeballs.

Shonali Bose’s small-budget film Chittagong that is based on the same subject and stars Manoj Bajpai as the revolutionary Surjya Sen, was meant to release in October, but it was delayed due to reasons unclear. But now, Anurag Kashyap, known for his brutal straightforwardness, has thrown light on the reasons.

Anurag has written on a social networking site: “See Chittagong, a far superior film made on the same subject as Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey... At 1/8 th the cost, far superior actors and immense passion... Producers decided to sit on it, because of a phone call from someone, because that someone was trying desperately to save his son’s career... welcome to Bollywood, where whose son you are outshines all the hard work and passion and potential and talent. KHJJS came and went, now what?”

There can be no doubt that the “someone” referred to in the post is Amitabh Bachchan.

When the superstar was asked to reply to Kashyap’s allegation, he said he did not want to dignify an undignified remark by commenting on it. However, Big B did say that the allegation is ‘baseless’ and ‘incorrect’.

Meanwhile, Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey is on its way to be a flop.
