In a press statement released for the media, Abhimanyu Singh says, “It is a genuine case of misquoting the facts. Media has altered the quote and implicated Ramu Sir’s name where I had not taken any specific names during the course of interaction. Yes, I am not happy for being left out of the promotions of Department despite giving my best to the film, but I am not happy with the production house and the creative team.”
“We all were working towards the same goal and I am sure they might have wanted me to come as a surprise element in the film. Although, any of such communication has not reached me,” said the fiery actor, before continuing, “I request the media to come up with the facts which are stated and not fabricate my quotes and create any controversy. I am not miffed with RGV and I trust him completely.”
It is not to forget that post Gulaal, Abhimanyu Singh’s talent was brought to the fore in the bloodbath of Rakta Charitra, where an un-human Bukkaa Reddy was highly praised by critics and audiences alike. The association has not only stopped there, but post Department, the actor-director duo will also be working together in Ab Tak Chappan - Part Two to be directed by Nana Patekar.
