They say in Bollywood there are no permanent friends or foes. Looks like that’s the case between Amitabh Bachchan and Anurag Kashyap too, who till recently were not known to be in each other’s good books. Close on the heels of buzz that the veteran actor and the filmmaker are all set to work together on an upcoming film, both seemed to be extremely comfortable in the presence of each other at a preview of Chittagong on Wednesday night.
Our source present at the event says, “Both of them have been bonding very well with each other in recent times. Who could tell that a while ago Anurag had alleged that Bachchan was trying to sabotage this film because the theme clashed with Abhishek’s Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey? It’s strange that the two of them are meeting at the screening of the same film.”
At a recent awards event organised by a magazine, Bachchan presented the Best Director award to Anurag for Gangs of Wasseypur. Our informer points out, “It seems to be more than just a coincidence. Anurag will start his next film with Bachchan soon after he wraps his project with Ranbir Kapoor.” Another source says, “A while ago, Big B had asked Anurag to cast him in a film. The filmmaker sketched a ‘negative’ character for the veteran actor and apparently Bachchan was not too happy with it.” Bachchan also recently took to praising Anurag’s latest film on his blog. Let’s hope for a new beginning.
