Bollywood star-son Abhishek Bachchan has recently declined an offer by Yash Raj Films to work in their recent untitled project. The movie stars Rani Mukherjee and Shahid Kapoor in the lead roles.
Apparently, Bachchan was offered a small cameo in the movie based on cricketers.
According to our source at Yash Raj, he reveals that the real reason for his refusal is Abhishek is not keen to do a small role in any film especially after his recent debacle, Drona. Apart from that he had a bad experience when he did a special appearance in Pradeep Sarkar’s Laaga Chunari Mein Daag. It failed to make it at the box office.
This new project is finding itself in the controversies already. There is a rumor that Rani is directing the movie ‘ghostly’ since the debutant director Anurag Singh was facing problems. Also, some people are saying that Aditay Chopra has stopped further shooting after seeing the work already been done.
Anyways, Abhishek might not be completely wrong with that decision after hearing all that stuff. Besides, he’s got to concentrate on promoting his new release Dostana these days, which is getting average reviews.
Confident about ‘Dostana’, which releases today, he clarifies that neither is the film anywhere close to the 1984 namesake nor is the gay plot between him and John Abraham the mainstay in the story. ‘Such subplots naturally get more attention, making our jobs even more difficult,’ he sighs.
