Though one could well imagine Ajay Devgn and Abhishek Bachchan to be dominating the initial segment of BOL BACHCHAN promotion, the latest development is around Amitabh Bachchan's 'item song' being unveiled first. This only makes one further wonder whether pretty girls Asin and Prachi are happy with the developments.
"Asin, as well as Prachi, was sorely missed by many when they had a miniscule appearance in the theatrical promo of the film. Even though it lasted close to three minutes, it was all about Ajay and Abhishek. Worse, neither Asin nor Prachi had even a single dialogue to their credit," says an observer.
To be fair to the film though, since it is neither a quintessential romcom nor an emotional musical tale, it can't be expected to have female leads at the forefront. With the entire 'Golmaal' revolving around Ajay and Abhishek, the makers have seemingly pitched the film for what it is.
An industry insider has a different point of view though. He says, "Even Kareena Kapoor had a minuscule role in 3 IDIOTS, another male-dominated film. Similarly, Katrina Kaif too didn't have much to do in ZINDAGI NAA MILEGI DOBARA and only had an extended guest appearance. Still, neither Rajkumar Hirani nor Zoya Akhtar kept them in the background. Now Asin is being seen after delivering three blockbusters like HOUSEFULL 2, READY and GHAJINI, each of which has scored over 100 crores each. Her presence does add weight and she should have been more prominent."
As things stand today though, it would have to wait since the Amitabh Bachchan song is expected to play on for another week at least with an added emphasis on the theatrical promo to fetch as many eyeballs as possible. In all likelihood, it would be only towards mid-June when the girls would find a much better placement for themselves. Till then, it is pretty much a wait and watches situation for all involved.
