In an interview with Joginder Tuteja, OMG! Oh My God director Umesh Shukla has rubbished reports of Aamir Khan and Rajkumar Hirani offering Rs 8 crore to shelve the Paresh Rawal starrer that released in 2012.
Shukla says “Bullshit. Where these useless rumours come from, I have no idea. There was nothing like that. This is not true at all. These (Aamir, Hirani, Chopra) are good people, you can’t even think like that”
Shukla also added that, if the news was indeed true, they could have used it to promote their film during its release.
“If this was true then it would have been good news at the time when my film was getting ready for release. It would have made for such a good read that Aamir likes the core concept of my film so much. If that news had spread, it would have benefitted my film. We are straight forward people. We just want to do a good job and give the audience some good stuff. Abhijat (Joshi) is a good friend of mine. If he makes something then I will go and watch it. I like his work.”
