My relationship with Farhan is no longer same: Abhishek Kapoor
The once good friends fell out over the sequel to Rock On; Kapoor calls it unfortunate
AAbhishek Kapoor (right), who directed the 2008 hit Rock On!, starring Farhan Akhtar (above), says his bond with the actor has not been the same ever since a controversy erupted over the script of Rock On 2. “I wouldn’t say that the relationship (with Farhan) is the same. It is unfortunate that this is happening. I would like to believe that he (Farhan) has been misled,” says Kapoor, who is currently in Poland to shoot for his next. Rock On 2!! is the sequel to the rock music drama in which Kapoor directed Farhan.
However, Kapoor has moved the Bombay High Court to stall the making of the sequel to the film, claiming that he had been working on it since September 2011. He has accused Farhan’s production house of giving writer Pubali Chaudhuri the sole credit for the script.
“At the moment, we are in court. It is the script that I have written and the producers are not giving me credit for it. I just want credit for my script and I don’t know what the problem is,” Abhishek says, adding: “It takes a lot to write a movie and develop a film and when someone doesn’t give credit for that, that’s not good. It’s a matter of principles.”
His next directorial features actors Katrina Kaif and Aditya Roy Kapur.
