Mumbai: Sanjay Dutt has been angered by the people who are spreading rumours about him and Bachchan’s falling-out.
Sanju is pissed off by people who are constantly speaking behind his back. He rarely talks or gives out strong statements but this time he has expressed his mood in loud and clear terms.
Talking to a daily, a source close to Dutt said, “Sanju is very upset with people spreading rumours about him being upset with Aishwarya. There have been talks in the industry that Sanju is angry with Aishwarya because she has kept his home production ‘Satta Pe Satta’ (directed by Soham Shah) on hold as the actress is dithering about her dates.”
“Sanju feels that some people with vested interests are trying to create misunderstanding between the Bachchans and him.
Aishwarya has been the only actress approached till now for ‘Satte Pe Satta’ and Sanju is prepared to wait till she decides on dates. In the meantime Sanjay Dutt Productions (SDP) will go ahead with its other projects.”
A visibly agitated Dutt said, “The rumours about me being upset with Aishwarya are rubbish! I am upset with people who are spreading such rumours instead. The Bachchans are like my family. I can never be upset with them.”
“We all know that filmmaking is a time-taking process. Everything takes time and happens in its due course.
Ash has told me that she needs some time and we at SDP are prepared to wait till eternity for her. It will be a pleasure working with Ash, if she agrees to do ‘Satte Pe Satta’," added the actor.
The source adds that Dutt has always been very close to the Bachchan family. “In fact Sanjay and his wife Manaayata were one of the few actors invited to Abhishek and Aishwarya`s wedding.”
Dutt`s ‘Satte Pe Satta’ is a remake of Raj N Sippy`s superhit film ‘Satte Pe Satta’ (1982) and is the story of seven brothers living on a large farmhouse.
Amitabh Bachchan and Hema Malini were the main leads in the original film. In the remake, Dutt and Aishwarya are supposed to play lead roles.
