Daughter of filmmaker JP Dutta just spoke about Abhishek Bachchan leaving her father JP Dutta’s film 24 hours before shoot began to a leading daily . She said that Abhishek Bachchan abandoned Paltan one day before the filming began. “Abhishek Bachchan is no longer part of Paltan for personal reasons best known to him. It has come as a shock to us as this happened less than 24 hours before our unit left to shoot in Ladakh,” Nidhi Dutta told a leading daily.
She further added “But we also believe that especially in the movies we make it’s the soldiers sitting up there that choose who will play them and recreate their lives on screen. Nevertheless we wish him luck with his future endeavours. We are already in Ladakh filming with our entire cast and crew and Army personnel. We will announce the actor who is replacing Abhishek in the film soon.”
Earlier in June, Abhishek Bachchan had shared the poster of Paltan captioned, “Brother to my left, brother to my right. Together we stand. Together we fight! I’m part of the PALTAN, are you? #jpdutta #JaiHind.”
Abhishek, who was last seen in Houseful 3 made his debut in 2000 with JP Dutta’s Refugee opposite Kareena Kapoor Khan. He later worked with th director in LOC Kargil and Umrao Jaan.
Strange why Jr. Bachchan would abandon a project 24 prior to its shooting. Watch this space for more updates on this.
