Ever since Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was replaced by Kareena Kapoor in
UTV-Madhur Bhadarkar's film Heroine, none of the
Bachchans' have signed any UTV film.
Writer-producer Nikhil Advani and director Sudhir Mishra, along
with UTV had approached Amitabh Bachchan for their forthcoming film
Mehrunissa. The script of the film was written with
Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor in mind. Though Rishi Kapoor
agreed to do the film, Amitabh Bachchan did not give his approval.
It was only when Advani and Mishra gave up their alliance with UTV
that Big B decided to be part of the film Mehrunissa.
Abhishek Bachchan too in the past had refused to do Raj Kumar
Gupta's Ghanchakkar produced by UTV.
Though Aishwarya Rai had a huge problem with UTV, neither
Abhishek Bachchan nor Amitabh Bachchan has refrained from working
for any production house. However, facts reveal that the entire
Bachchan family have so far avoided working in UTV ventures.
