Abhay earlier was quoted as saying that the film (ROCK THE SHAADI) is not happening because the co-producer (Siddharth M Jain's iRock) messed it up.
To this, Siddhartha reacted by saying, "I am currently in Fiji for a film, so wish I could do this face to face. And I really wished, that Abhay would speak to me directly and not through the press. All I can say is that Abhay should check facts directly, form a fair opinion & then react publicly. Not to go on hearsay & get emotional about friendships."
He further added, "There were 200 people on the set and everyone knows what happened. Balaji has been extremely reasonable in wanting to make the film in a certain budget. I had sold the film to them. If I was the problem, then the film would have, still been completed without me. Clearly I am not the cause of the delay. It's my script & a superb one. So far 45min of the 90min film that's been shot & it looks superb. We made RAGINI MMS, we know budgets. High concept films cannot be made lavishly & everyone has to cooperate to work in a certain way, which means, thinking outside the box."
"As Tanuj from Balaji rightly says, we need to be cost conscious and make the film in the right budget," concluded Siddhartha.
