Is Anubhav Sinha publicity hungry? Aamir thinks so!
Aamir Khan’s Delhi Belly has come in for much criticism for the cuss words in its songs – whether from Amitabh Bachchan or Anubhav Sinha. While Amitabh was against the general use of such words, Anubhav went on a rant about how upset he was that his nine-year-old son was listening to Bhaag DK Bose and that the song, which is from an adult film, is being aired in a public space. But Aamir is not one to take things lying down. So the first chance he got, he gave a fitting reply to Anubhav. “Some people believe that by maligning others, they can get publicity. I don’t believe in that sort of thing,” he said about the RA.One director. We wonder though if Aamir would have been that scathing if Anubhav wasn’t directing a Shahrukh Khan production. Especially since he was far more polite when it came to replying to Amitabh’s comment. “When an elder in the industry you respect gently tells you you did something wrong and twists your ears, there’s only one thing you can do: Bhaag DK Bose, DK Bose, DK Bose, bhaag!” Aamir has also made it very clear that Delhi Belly is not for the under-18s. “We were sure we were not making it for children. That’s why we directly applied for an ‘A’ certificate (with the Censor Board). And we got it without any cuts.” Guess he’ll know this Friday if the audience decides to attach praise or cuss words to the film!
