The rift between actors and directors is not unheard in Bollywood. Recently, Saif Ali Khan's statement on Sajid Khan had sparked a new controversy in the film fraternity. Soon after the release of the movie Humshakals, he had stated that working with director Sajid Khan was a big mistake and he would not work with the director again.
The movie Humshakals, although earned over 100 crore at the box office, was called one of the worst comedy films ever. And when Saif was criticized for his behavior his actress wife Kareena Kapoor came to his rescue. She supported her husband by saying that every actor can express his opinion on the film. However, her Singham Returns co-star Ajay Devgn has a different stand on the issue.
Ajay Devgn feels that actors should also take the responsibility if the film fails at the box office. The actor who worked with Sajid Khan's Himmatwala said he was also responsible for the failure of the film.
This is not the first time that a rift between actor and a filmmaker is out in open, there are many other celebrities who were caught in a fight with their directors.
