Amisha Patel is said to be upset with the producers of Bhool Bhulaiyaa over the promotional materials for the film. Amisha co-stars along with Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan, along with Rajpal Yadav, Asrani, Manoj Joshi and Paresh Rawal in the film that releases October 12th.
In the publicity poster Vidya and not Amisha is given the better position of being seated next to Akshay Kumar, when in fact it should be Amisha since she is playing his wife.
“Amisha was very upset when she saw the posters and immediately called Priyan but it was too late by then as all the posters were designed and sent for printing. Amisha’s anger is justified when she said that she was being shown in the posters along with Asrani, Manoj Joshi, Rajpal Yadav and Paresh Rawal when she is the heroine of the film. She was also upset that Vidya Balan is shown sitting next to Akshay when she is the one who is paired opposite Akshay. She said that either Vidya also should have been made to stand or she should also be made to sit alongside Akshay Kumar in these posters. Unfortunately all the publicity designs were released and nothing could be done,” said a source from the production team.
The CD covers carry the same image and Amisha is so upset over this she supposedly has decided not to attend. “The music of the film is scheduled to be released on October 1. Producer Bhushan Kumar and director Priyan are trying their best to convince her but everything seems to be in vain right now,” the source added.
Priyadarshan, director of the film says he has not heard she was upset but adds. “All I know is that she has an equal and powerful role as Vidya has in the film. As far as the posters and designs are concerned, although the producer takes the first approval, I don’t see everything they make. I have seen the posters and the CD covers you are referring to, and if Amisha is hurt and feels let down then she has every right to be. These kind of things do let you down. Normally the producers show the designs to me but since I am in Chennai I couldn’t see the designs. So, I am not aware.”
