Abhinav Kashyap Bullied Out Of Bollywood?

Abhinav Kashyap’s  Facebook post where he has accused Salman Khan and his brothers  of  bullying and  intimidating him out of  the  film industry, has stirred  up a  hornest’s nest. Coming  as it does  after Sushant Singh Rajput’s suicide and  the  raging  controversy regarding  the prevalent nepotism in  the  film industry,Abhinav  Kashyap’s accusations(which interestingly  enough, his brother Anurag has  distanced himself from) are a significant  blow to Salman and his family’s reputation.

The  allegation that Arbaaz  Khan shunted Abhinav out of  the Dabangg series after Part 1 is  not untrue. It is a  fact that  Salman and Arbaaz turned Abhinav’s  original script  into  a vehicle for Salman  Khan.

 Originally  , the cop  Chulbul Pandey  was to be played  by  Randeep Hooda . The film was  meant to be a raw, gritty cops  film.Arbaaz and Salman took over the project and  rendered Abhinav’s status as redundant in  his own film.

After  the release  and success of Dabangg  Arbaaz  Khan  told me  in an interview, “During Dabangg, I’d suggest changes and Abhinav would incorporate them. It was time-consuming.  This time, for Dabangg  2  I’ll be actively involved with the writing during scripting. We’ve a bigger responsibility this time.Let Abhinav   tell me that he doesn’t want to direct the  sequel   So far he hasn’t.Why should I believe what I hear until he says it? I am aware that he has been going out for negotiations with many production houses. With us, he shares a different rapport. Our ‘contract’ is a moral one.Dabangg worked because of many factors. And it is an expensive film. When it clicked during the first week, I gifted him a car worth Rs 25 lakhs.That came from the heart. He can’t make demands of us. We work on a different equation.”
