Amitabh Bachchan’s cribbing about the poor editing of Mani Ratnam’s movie Raavan, on his blog, made actor Vikram and Cinematographer Santosh Sivan jump to Ratnam’s rescue by saying, it’s a director’s prerogative to decide how the characters should be depicted. Mani Ratnam who was calm till now, couldn’t stay the same any longer has spoken his mind to a Tamil weekly.
“That is his (Amitabh’s) opinion. I am not bothered about it. And I am not here in the industry to get marks from Amitabh Bachchan. We have made a film after two years of hard work. Anyone can comment on it,” Ratnam is quoted as saying by the weekly.
Big B had written “Lot of merited film edited out, causing inconsistent performance and narrative,”.
The superstar had later clarified that he has immense respect for Ratnam.
