After Sanjay Dutt, Ram Gopal Varma blames Abhishek Bachchan for failure of his ‘Department’


Ram Gopal Varma

MUMBAI: Yesterday, film-maker Ram Gopal Varma fumed and fretted on a social networking site, about Sanjay Dutt’s interference in the decision making process of ‘Department’. Today, in an interview with a leading daily, Varma blamed Abhishek Bachchan for the disaster.

"When Abhishek was supposed to do Rana’s role, it was he who convinced me about Dutt against my better judgement. Later on, he couldn’t do the film and I was left with Dutt. So I definitely blame Abhishek for making me go through this," RGV told the tabloid.

Angry with Dutt, his tweet yesterday was, "Whatever else happening to ‘Department’ I am supremely happy that I don’t want to see the faces of Sanjay Dutt and Dharam Oberoi (CEO of Sanjay Dutt Productions) for the rest of my life. From forcing me to take Kangna out of the film to constantly cornering me to change screenplay, I had the most horrible time working with Dutt."
