Meanwhile, Sippy assures Mid Day that all is well between him and Abhishek, “Abhishek hasn't told me that he is upset with the ending of the film. I don't think he should have any issues. He had seen the film several times. He saw the edits and the final copy."
He added, “I stand by the ending and if anyone who feels that by keeping AB alive in the film we would have done better business, they should know that Game (where he doesn't die) collected Rs 4.5 crore overall and we have collected Rs 16.5 crore in three days."
So is that Abhishek Bachchan's death as ACP Vishnu Kamath in Dum Maaro Dum, has cashed in money for the makers?
While shooting Dilli 6, Abhishek had a similar kind of problem with the script, which showed him dying in the film. On the actor's insistence the script was altered and his character was kept alive, however the film crashed big time at the Box Office.
It should also be noted that originally the cop's role was not written for Abhishek. He swapped his role with Rana Daggubatti, who played the role of the local DJ in Dum Maaro Dum.
Reportedly, Abhishek Bachchan is upset with his character's death in Dum Maaro Dum. Apparently, he conveyed this to director Rohan Sippy, who strongly believed in the film's climax. The film went ahead as the director wanted. Sippy convinced the actor to go with the original idea, however the idea failed to lure Junior Bachchan after he saw the final edit of the film.
