Amitabh Bachchan lands ‘Aarakshan’ co-star Manoj Bajpayee in trouble

Media grills Bajpayee endlessly over Sr Bachchan’s quip in a recent television interview

Prakash Jha’s film Aarakshan has been in the news these days, mostly for all the wrong reasons, but this one really made us laugh. Apparently in a television interview, Amitabh Bachchan was asked if there was any item number in the film. Tongue firmly in cheek, Mr Bachchan said that Manoj Bajpayee was doing an item song in the film and Bajpai played along saying that he was the ‘item boy’. Little did he know that the media will hound him endlessly to know all about his so-called ‘item number’. Not that Bajpayee hates this sudden media attention; only, sometimes it gets a little too embarrassing for him. Talking about this he said, “Everyone takes Mr Bachchan very seriously and now they all want to know about this non-existent item number. I am really embarrassed with these sudden comparisons with the Munnis and Sheilas of the world.” Probably this is the funniest thing so far about Jha’s serious take on the reservation system of India. From what we have seen, the film seems to be heavy duty stuff where most of the characters are pitted against each other. Going by Jha’s track record, we can safely say that he might also mellow down the love track between Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone. On second thought, Bajpayee should actually have done an item number so that he doesn’t start getting slotted as a serious character artiste for good!
