All is not well between Puri and Abhishek Bachchan?

After the praise heaped on Puri Jagannath for his Amitabh Bachchan starrer Bbuddah Hoga Tera Baap, news is trickling down that all is not well between the director and Abhishek Bachchan.

Puri has first announced that his next film The Businessman will be a bilingual in Hindi and Telugu with Abhishek Bachchan and Mahesh Babu playing the lead roles respectively. Now, he says that he will make the film only in Telugu and think about remaking it in Hindi later. This has given rise to the speculation that something went wrong with Puri and Junior B.

Insiders say that Abhishek Bachchan interfered with the script and shooting of Bbuddah Hoga Tera Baap and forced Puri to include a Kajra..re type item song which was directed by Shaad Ali of Bunty and Babli fame. Rs 2 cr was spent on the item song which was picturised on Amitabh Bachchan and Raveena Tandon.

But Puri cut off this song from the film before its release which irked Abhishek. It seems Puri is likely to include the item song in the DVD version.
