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

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

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.
