Abhishek Bachchan has admitted that for a long time he and Anurag Kashyap didn't talk to each other. However, now it’s all in the past as Abhishek is set to return to the big screen this year with Anurag Kashyap's Manmarziyaan that releases this September.
In an interview to DNA, the actor opened up about his differences with Kashyap that date back to the year 2004 when he had featured in Yuva, written by Kashyap and directed by Mani Ratnam. While Kashyap hasn't said anything to him, Abhishek feels he didn't like his work in the 2004-release.
Abhishek has been quoted as saying, “I first worked with Anurag in Mani Ratnam’s Yuva(2004); he had written it. I don’t think he liked my work in the film.” He went on to explain that they had spent a lot of time doing the readings for the film so perhaps that's why Kashyap could have been disappointed with him. He said, “And it’s only fair because we had spent a lot of time doing readings for the film. So somewhere, maybe he felt a little disappointed when he watched the movie. But we never spoke about it. Now, we’ve put all that behind us.”
bhishek further shared that while Manmarizyan meets all his requirements when it comes to choosing projects, he would never let ego to come in his work. “Manmarziyaan ticked all the boxes because I instinctively knew that I wanted to be uncomfortable, have sleepless nights and this guy was going to help me do that. Also, I would never allow ego to come in the way of my work,” he said.
