Did Tigmanshu Dhulia take a dig at Rohit Shetty?

Sometimes, a veiled barb works better than open criticism.

At the launch of an international children's film festival in New Delhi on Monday, director Tigmanshu Dhulia was at his witty, or should I say sarcastic, best.

When asked why few children's films were being made in India, Tishu laughed and said, "Who said so? These days big directors are only making children's films. All these cars flying in the air and stuff like that." When he was asked if big stars were necessary to make kiddie flicks commercially viable, he replied, "Big stars or small stars should be decided according to the script, but a big star cannot see a bad story."

I wonder what made Tigmanshu say that. Was the comment directed at Rohit Shetty's upcoming film, 'Dilwale', which has cars flying? Hmmm.
