'Bheja Fry 2 was never supposed to star Rajat Kapoor'

Highlight Story

Bheja Fry director Sagar Belary is ready with three films to be released in the next one year, Bheja Fry 2 being one of them. Cutting down the controversy of Rajat Kapoor opting out of the sequel, Sagar says the actor was never meant to star in the film.

"As in any ongoing series, only the character of the hero, namely Bharat Bhushan, played by Vinay Pathak would remain constant. All the rest of the characters, including Rajat Kapoor, change every time," explains Sagar.

Sagar says the rumour about Rajat Kapoor opting out was spread by an actor who was sacked from Bheja Fry 2.

"That actor thought that by spreading rumours about Rajat, she was covering her own tracks. I'm very happy to say Bheja Fry 2 is absolutely original."

"Though Bheja Fry was inspired by a French film (Francis Veber's Dinner Game), I am happy to see a new Hollywood film Dinner For Schmuks based on the same matter. If I may say so, my Bheja Fry was far less slapstick than the Hollywood film," says Sagar, who is currently shooting with director Madhur Bhandarkar for Hum Tum Aur Shabana.
