A careless whisper accusing Anubhav Sinha of lifting Ajay Devgan's idea for animation film has the filmmaker completely baffled, and amused. "I believe Ajay is making an animation film named Toonpur Ka Superhero. I'm very happy for him. As far as me stealing his idea goes, I'm doing no such thing because I am not making an animation film at all. Someone somewhere started this rumour about me doing an animation film with Shahrukh Khan. The word spread like wildfire. The film I'm doing with Shahrukh is a feature film. So where's the point of comparison with Toonpur Ka Superhero?"
The friction between Devgan and Sinha started during the making of the director's cash-and-burn caper Cash. Things came to a point where the actor was quoted as saying he was glad Cash flopped.
Anubhav Sinha certainly won't share that feeling. "I've put Cash behind me. I'm now busy scripting my film for Shahrukh Khan's production house. In addition I'm now looking into starting several productions this year."
