Anurag Vs Abhay Rift Since Dev D!
In an older interview, Anurag had recalled working with his Dev D actor as a daunting experience. The Choked director had once told, “It was painfully difficult to work with him. I don’t really have great memories with him. And haven’t talked to him much since I finished shooting.” Anurag had stated, “He wanted to do artistic movies but also wanted the mainstream benefits. The benefits and luxuries of being a ‘Deol’. He would stay in a five-star hotel while the entire crew stayed in Paharganj for a film that was made on a very tight budget. Also the reason a lot of his directors went away from him.” The filmmaker said that Abhay wasn’t there to promote Dev D as the latter was going through some emotional turmoil. According to Anurag, Abhay felt betrayed by him due to which the both haven’t spoken again.”
Abhay’s new sports drama Jungle Cry is about twelve underprivileged children from the Kalinga Institute of Social Sciences in Orissa, India who compete in the prestigious U14 Rugby World Cup in England. The film is directed by Bheja Fry fame, Sagar Ballary.
