Abhay & Anil patch up!
Abhay, it is said, is still nursing his wounds after being underutilised and apparently unprofessionally treated in the movie. But it is also said that Anil has already extended the olive branch to the maverick and versatile character actor by calling him up and even meeting him in person to sort out the differences.
It is true, Abhay had been vocal about his resentment towards Anil’s production. He had told BT then that he would not do an Aisha ever again. Sources present on the sets allege that he was kept waiting as the actresses took time to dress up. After repeated instances like this, Abhay voiced his discomfort to Anil. Abhay told BT that Aisha wasn’t about acting but was about clothes and so he had nothing to comment about the movie.
Top industry sources give conflicting stories about the status quo of their relationship as it stands today. Some say Abhay doesn’t want to get into a professional sphere with Anil, while others close to the veteran actor say that everything is fine between them. Anil apparently had a detailed discussion with Abhay and ironed out their differences. Abhay could not be traced for a comment, and Anil was travelling to London and could not reply.
