War of Words between Anushka & Sushant @ Peekay
Ace filmmaker Rajukumar Hirani’s forthcoming Peekay starring Aamir in lead role seems to be capturing the limelight since its announcement. First it was the female casting, as each and every lady from Bollywood wanted to do the movie, even for FREE. Yes, you heard it FREE. While Hirani was looking for good actress from youth generation, but actress like Rani Mukherjee was trying hard to get herself in the movie. It was even heard, Yash Raj honcho was ready for co-production for the sake of Rani. Raju finally narrowed down to Anushkha for the female.
Anushkha since JTHJ with Yash Chopra seems to be flying high. Vishal’s ‘Bijlee’ gave her more current than needed and started bad mouthing about the new comer in Peekay, the television actor Sushant Singh.
Anushka had said,
I’m opposite both Sushant and Aamir. Sushant has only eight days worth of work. Hirani’s wife used to tell him that heroines never have a good role in his films. This time, he has changed that. I am proud that he chose me. Sushant is just a small chapter in my life.
While Sushant is excited to work with Hirani, Anushka’s statements came as a big surprise to him. When asked what he thought of these unflattering statements he said,
I will have to check the schedule to know exactly how many days I am shooting. As far as being a small chapter is concerned, I hope it’s an interesting one in her (Anushka) life.
I come from the school of actors who believe there are no small roles, there are only small actors. In my first film Kai Po Che, I am working with two other actors; in Maneesh Sharma’s movie, I am opposite two heroines and in the third, I am working with two lead actors. So I can stand in a crowd in the frame of a director like Rajkumar Hirani and still be a proud actor.
Looks like after Rakhi Sawant, Anushka is turning into Miss Big Foot in mouth. Well, the ball is now in Anushka’s court, lets see what she has to say on this matter!
