Filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani's latest offering, Sanju, had a special song criticising media for its insensitive coverage of issues. This, of course, didn't go down well with a few journalists and several questions were put up in front of the film's team. However, no clear answer from anyone could be received.
This time, a few questions were put up to the man himself, Sanjay Dutt. The actor is gearing up for the release of his next, Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3, which also features Jimmy Sheirgill, Mahi Gill and Chitrangda Singh. As reported by a leading daily, Baba has now decided to not promote the film and let the rest of the cast lead the promotion, fearing the questions around media bashing in Sanju.
A source close to the daily has quoted, "The actor was in a Mumbai-based studio interacting with representatives of various channels. But the journalists kept asking him about the 'media bashing' in Sanju. He didn't give a proper response and at one point, even mentioned he shouldn't be blamed as he hadn't written the anti-media track".
The source added, "Sanjay apparently lost his temper on the film's team and left in a huff. Now, he has cancelled all the other interviews. He doesn't want to promote the film anymore".
It is also likely that the actor might only entertain a few selective journalists and give them interviews for his next in Lucknow, where he's shooting for his home production film, Prassthanam.
Well, who all saw it coming?
