Have no in­ter­est in watch­ing Ae Dil Hai Mushkil: Vidhu Vinod Cho­pra

Fiji Sun - - Showbiz - Vidhu Vinod Cho­pra

Mum­bai: Film­maker Vidhu Vinod Cho­pra chose to avoid a ques­tion about a re­mark on late singer Mo­hammed Rafi in Karan Jo­har’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, say­ing he has not watched the film and does not have any plans to see it.

In the film, Ran­bir Kapoor, who plays an as­pir­ing singer tells Anushka Sharma that many peo­ple have said his voice is like Rafi’s, to which Anushka says, “Mo­ham­mad Rafi? Woh gaate kam, rote zyada the na?”

The di­a­logue has irked Rafi’s fam­ily mem­bers and fans. When asked to com­ment on this, Cho­pra said, “I don’t watch Hindi films. The name of the film that you took I haven’t seen it and I don’t in­tend to watch it. I have no in­ter­est.”

Cho­pra was speak­ing at the spe­cial screen­ing of Priyanka Cho­pra-pro­duced Marathi film Ven­ti­la­tor.

Ven­ti­la­tor is such a good film that you would for­get who made fun of whom in which film. When a good film is made it is of some dif­fer­ent level.

The 64-year-old pro­ducer-di­rec­tor said lan­guage did not come in the way while watch­ing Ven­ti­la­tor.

Cho­pra and Ven­ti­la­tor di­rec­tor Ra­jesh Ma­puskar had ear­lier teamed up for Shar­man Joshi-Bo­man Irani star­rer Fer­rai Ki Sawari . Pro­duced by Priyanka Cho­pra and her mother Madhu Cho­pra, the film stars Sulbha Arya, Viju Khote, Ji­ten­dra Joshi, Ashutosh Gowariker and oth­ers.
