Amid the tension sparked by the agitations and bans on his film “Aarakshan” which is based on the caste-based education system, megastar Amitabh Bachchan came to unveil the first look of actor Sanjay Dutt’s film “Rascals”.
“Sanju is always a part of my family. It’s always a great honour to associate myself with people of my own fraternity. I am happy that the condition of the film industry is getting well, thanks to Ajay, Sanju, Salman and many others. My all-good wishes to them,” Amitabh told reporters unveiling the first look of the film at PVR Juhu here Thursday.
Sanjay has acted and co-produced the comedy caper with Sanjay Ahluwalia and Vinay Choksey.
Directed by David Dhawan, the film also stars actor Ajay Devgn, Arjun Rampal, Kangna Ranaut and Lisa Hayden.
Producer-director of “Aarakshan”, Prakash Jha was also expected at the event but he couldn’t make it.
It was obvious that Amitabh’s presence would inevitably lead to “Aarakshan” coming up.
Asked why they chose to share their platform for it, Ajay said:, ” ‘Aarakshan’ is our film only. We are all together. I share long and good relations with Prakashji. If we can help each other and support each other what could be better than that?”
Kangna and Arjun were missing from the event due to some of their previous commitments.
