Muzaffar Ali very upset with Amitabh Bachchan

It seems these days Amitabh Bachchan is rubbing everyone the wrong way. After the famous Jaya Bachchan-Raj Thackeray controversy for which Big B had to apologize, it is now filmmaker Muzaffar Ali, who is very upset with him and the reason is Amitabh Bachchan’s get-up in The Last Lear, which, the filmmaker feels is based on his appearance and mannerisms.

According to a newspaper, the soft-spoken director took an offence about the film and its characters during the making Rituparno Ghosh initially tried to pacify the filmmaker Muzaffar Ali but when he refused to calm down, the director told him that he is behaving like Raj Thackeray. This further annoyed the old filmmaker’s ire. Ali said he was angry as he felt he should’ve been informed if a character was being based on him. He also criticized Amitabh saying that he should at least have some courtesy to call him before playing the character. Rituparno Ghosh has made it clear that the character of the old actor in ‘The Last Lear’ is not based on Muzaffar Ali. Let’s see now, what more the Big B has to say, more apologies perhaps!
