Is Abhishek turning gay for BOL BACHCHAN?

Joginder Tuteja, Glamsham Editorial

Is Abhishek Bachchan turning gay for BOL BACHCHAN and returning with his DOSTANA act? Well, if the poster of the Rohit Shetty directed film is any indication then this is pretty much the case.

"Film's poster has Abhishek Bachchan in a dual appearance while standing behind Ajay Devgn. While one of the characters played by him seems to be quite rustic and attached to the roots - a la BUNTY AUR BABLI - the other Abhishek seems to be a riot. One look at him and you can make out that he is enacting a gay character," says an observer.

The traits, as projected in many a stereotypical Bollywood film (including DOSTANA) are all there. Even as his hand is precariously placed over his chest with a body language which has feminine touch to it, the clincher is a pink floral shirt which he is happy to wear.

"Just like DOSTANA, even in BOL BACHCHAN Abhishek is clearly having fun while spoofing a gay character," says a source, "It isn't supposed to be taken seriously at all since he is not supposed to be gay in the film. In the film's original - GOLMAAL - Amol Palekar had played a smart alec and 'seedha-saadha' kurta-pyajama clad simpleton. It is clear that the simpleton has been replaced by a funny gay character here."

However the makers aren't willing to go on record about this characterisation. When contacted, Rohit Shetty was unavailable for comment.

Perhaps he and Abhishek will talk once the promo would reveal it all.
