While 'Besharam' had done decent business on the first day the movie has been panned by critics and audiences. In fact, some trade experts even said that the film is a washout at the box office and that Ranbir Kapoor has had a flop after two super-hit films 'Barfi!' and 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani'.
But director Abhinav Kashyap has come out strongly in defence of his film and has blamed vested interests behind the rumours. "I have the first day numbers of the film which is the highest for both me and Ranbir. I really don't understand why the English media and certain people with vested interests are panning the film."
The director claims that his cell phone has been flooded with congratulatory messages and his friends and fans have loved the film. As far as the vested interests are concerned, we wonder whether he is pointing at Salman or Arbaaz Khan, with whom he fell out, after 'Dabangg'!
Kashyap further added, "With whatever is happening around 'Besharam',I smell some kind of a sinister plan. Certain forces don't want the film to succeed." However, Ranbir seems to have moved on from the movie and his director already. On Tuesday night, at the special screening held for the cast of 'Besharam', Ranbir not only arrived late but also skipped greeting Abhinav and Pallavi, who were present at the venue. He did not chat with anybody and left the theatre within 15 minutes.
