Big B versus Aamir Khan war of words is heating up everyday. Aamir in a recent media interview panned director Sanjay Leela Bhansali for his handling of the film Black terming it â€œinsensitive and manipulativeâ€. He also termed the performances of the actors â€œover the topâ€.
The criticism did not go down well with Amitabh Bachchan. In an interview with a tabloid he was asked what he thought about Aamirâ€™s â€œover the topâ€ remark. â€œI cannot comment whether my performance was towering or not, but Aamir may be right on the other maybe the performances did go â€˜over the topâ€™ of his head!â€ Amitabh responded. In his response to Bachchanâ€™s outburst, Aamir Khan posted a blog entry that was calm and matter of fact. â€œI have the highest regard for Mr Bachchan and I am very big fan of his work. Probably one of the biggest, I believe that he along with Mr Dilip Kumar are among my two favourite actors of Indian Cimema. I have no hesitation in saying that I donâ€™t even feature on the same platform as an actor. He is also in my opinion â€˜theâ€™ biggest star that Indian Cinema has ever seen.â€
Putting his comments on Black in perspective Aamir continues, â€œMy big exception towards Black is the fact that a child with severe difficulties is shown being ill treated instead of being treated with love, care and understanding. I simply cannot come to terms with that no matter what the writer and director say in defence.â€
