Ashutosh Gowariker fights with Riteish, Boman
After exchanging heated words with Farah Khan and Sajid Khan at an award function, Ashutosh Gowariker has done it again. He blast over Riteish Deshmukh and Boman Irani, the hosts of the IIFA event for making jokes of films also included ‘Jodhaa Akbar’.
Says an eyewitness, "Riteish and Boman did a spoof on all the films which were nominated in the best film category Race, Jodhaa Akbar, Dostana, Rock On, Ghajini and A Wednesday. For the Jodhaa Akbar act, Boman played Akbar while a starlet played Jodha. Riteish walked in dressed as Amitabh Bachchan in Shahenshah.
When Boman asked Riteish who he was, the latter replied, 'Rishte mein tumhare baap lagte hai, lekin naam hai Shahenshah' to which Boman said, 'Tum Shahenshah toh main kaun hoon?' It was not at all offensive." There was another skit on Anil Kapoor at the Oscars and Ashutosh at the Oscar for Lagaan. Ashu took objection to that too."
At the middle of the show, Ashu walked away. The organizers have decided not to invite Ashutosh in any of the award functions as he always plays a spoil spot.
