Did Bacchans backstab Akshaye?

Looks like there's more to the eye than what's reported to that Teen Patti story. Did Amitabh backstab Akshaye? On top of this, they went to media with stories of how Akshaye refused to do the role. Disgusting.

Now Bachchans backstab Akshaye Khanna, actor replaced by Ajay Devgan

According to sources, actor Akshaye Khanna had been approached by producer Ambika Hinduja for a guest role in Amitabh Bachchan headlined Teen Patti. But, when he arrived on set for the shoot, fellow actor Ajay Devgan was already there shooting scenes that he was supposed to feature in.

A source in the unit reveals, "Akshaye had agreed to be a part of the cameo and he was all geared up to shoot but when Amitabh learnt of the guest role spot, he called Devgan (who was linked to the project in the initial stages) and asked him to shoot for the two-day part in the film. Devgan agreed immediately."

A source close to Devgan admits, "Though he is shooting for his home production Toonpur Ka Hero, Ajay immediately agreed on the special request of Bachchan as he is very close to the Bachchan clan.

When Amitabh was approached about this sudden urge for calling Ajay and not letting Akshaye know, he responded by saying, "No, I have not called Ajay. I don’t even know whether they (Khanna and Devgan) are doing a cameo in the film. The director decides all this. Check with her."

Fans of Akshaye Khanna are not happy about this. Discussing the situation on a Bollywood discussion website, one fan writes, “Akshaye is probably the only person who has helped Amitabh Bachchan’s daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai in getting a hit film – Subhash Ghai directed Taal. For Big B to do this to him and not even let him be aware that he was being replaced is back-stabbing – something which the Bachchans seem to be doing left right and centre. Akshaye really needs some work now. Ajay is doing films all over the place”

Radio Sargam is a sensationalistic site but sometimes its hits are true and they also print news found nowhere else. If this is true, why is Akshaye keeping mum? BTW, does anybody have any idea what fan forum that could be?

Yes, The Bachchans donot follow ethics…They misuse thier power in the industry, but they should adhere to some degree of professionalsm…Earlier also they got Kareena removed from Dostana…Shame on them

I think all this rubbish is being printed by the other camp, they cant digest the fact that Dostana is a huge hit and Abhishek is being applauded…..if the other camp was really talented they would not have to use such pathetic tactics….when the talent doesnt measure up, one resorts to such lowly fabrications.

akshaye is great actor like amir and anil kapor and bachans family is always jealous from khanna family and acting skill is far away from son of amitabh and ajay

Thats true that Akshaye Khanna is a super talented actor & is very much possible that the Big B might have felt insecured of himself in front of this versatile actor.

Wow! Akshaye Khanna is being liked more by some people against Amitabh Bachchan and Ajay Devgan.

In this respect, Akshaye Khanna is being recognised as a very good and versatile actor!

But, I don't think that Amitabh Bachchan would backstab Akshoo. It looks like some rumours.

Still, I'm glad that people are arguing against Amitabh for Akshoo. At least, there are some people who stand for Akshoo! And, I'm surprised about this fact.

Hey Anmol,

I also saw the comments and was cheered when at least some people were sticking up for Akshaye. Thanks for posting them here.
