A film director in his 30s was “shameful” for dating a celebrity and having a “personal relationship” with him, the actress said.
“He has done an incredible job and he has made a movie.
It is very sad,” the filmmaker told the Hindustan Times.
Amitabheb Bachchan’s “Shame” – the sequel to his 2010 film – has been the subject of a heated debate since it was released last week.
The film revolves around a married couple who go to a hotel for a wedding and discover that the bride’s parents are dead.
The story is set in a Mumbai suburb and revolves around an affair between Bachchan and actress Shazia Lakhani.
Amitbachchan and Lakhanani are seen enjoying each other’s company and have a private relationship for a time.
The filmmaker, however, claimed Bachchan did not take into account Lakhans parents.
“She’s not a bad person.
She’s just an actress.
She was a little bit of a flake and she made a mess out of herself,” he said.
In the past, the filmmaker has criticised the film’s depiction of women in the industry and has spoken out against the practice of “shaming” in the film industry.
In 2015, the director also hit out at “the fact that the film is a remake of his ‘Haiti’ movie, and is based on a novel written by him and his son”.
The film is currently filming in Mumbai.
In a statement to the Hindutva newspaper, Bachchan said: “I’m not sure if it’s a good thing to do a remake but that’s the way it is.
We can only do what we can.
I don’t know what will happen with it but I hope it will be an improvement.”
He also said he was not aware that his film would be re-released.
“I don’t want it to be a problem for my family.
They will see it and be very happy,” he added.
The actor also tweeted: “You’re welcome to be angry at me, but it’s not okay to be unkind.
We’re human and there is no need to be cruel.
You are welcome to say nasty things.”
He added that he hoped the film would not be viewed as a criticism of him or the film he is making.
“It is not my film.
It’s a book by my son.
I hope the people who see it don’t take it as a critique,” he tweeted.
He also tweeted that he would be “happy” to appear in a movie with a different director and director in future.
“If it works for me, I’ll be happy to be in it,” he wrote.
