Mani Ratnam fights back Big B


Prime VIP

Amitabh Bachchan’s cribbing about the poor editing of Mani Ratnam’s movie Raavan, on his blog, made actor Vikram and Cinematographer Santosh Sivan jump to Ratnam’s rescue by saying, it’s a director’s prerogative to decide how the characters should be depicted. Mani Ratnam who was calm till now, couldn’t stay the same any longer has spoken his mind to a Tamil weekly.

“That is his (Amitabh’s) opinion. I am not bothered about it. And I am not here in the industry to get marks from Amitabh Bachchan. We have made a film after two years of hard work. Anyone can comment on it,” Ratnam is quoted as saying by the weekly.

Big B had written “Lot of merited film edited out, causing inconsistent performance and narrative,”.

The superstar had later clarified that he has immense respect for Ratnam.​
