We are too small as artists to disrespect Dev or Zeenat—Abhishek

The Abhishek Bachchan-starrer Rohan Sippy’s ‘Dum Maaro Dum’, which has been the hottest controversial subject of discussion ever since its making started, has managed to gross around 6.2 crores on the opening day, reports IANS.

Besides the storyline, DMD’s item number ‘Mit Jaaye Gham’ featuring the hot Deepika Padukone, was also a much talked about issue before the release of the film.

Apparently, ‘Mit Jaaye Gham’, which is a remixed version of the 70s song ‘Dum Maro Dum’ from the movie ‘Hare Rama Hare Krishna’, had offended Dev Anand and Zeenat Aman, the legendary stars on whom the original song was featured.

In an exclusive interview with the TOI, the ‘Dum Maaro Dum’ protagonist Abhishek Bachchan articulated that the remixed item song ‘Mit Jaaye Gham’ was in no way intended to disrespect the veterinary superstars Dev Anand and Zeenat Aman, who has been legends in their own lunchtime.

Abhishek, who plays ACP Kamath in the movie, also said that they had owned the rights of the song, and as for including the remixed version of the song in the film, it’s the moviemakers, who decide on what to be included in a film script and what not to.

While addressing the TOI, Abhishek said, "We are too small as artists to even dare to disrespect Dev Sahab or Zeenat aunty. How can we? They are legends. As far as the song is concerned, we owned he rights of the song. As far as remixes are concerned, its upto a filmmaker to decide if he thinks its needed."

Well, Abhishek’s interview must have cheered up Dev sir and Zeenat mam now!
