Director Nambiar Annoys


Wazir director Bejoy Nambiar may have ruffled a few feathers with recent remarks about Big B’s character in his up-coming psychological thriller.

Disabled Rights Group (DRG) has openly condemned Nambiar for negative comments he made during an interview, where he commented on Amitabh Bachchan’s portrayal of a wheel-chair bound chess grandmaster.

He stated: “Casting Mr. Bachchan, who has got such a strong persona, and limiting him in a wheelchair, was a big task for us to get used to.”

The Organisation, lead by disability rights activist Javed Abibi, issued a statement saying: “Nambiar’s comments are disparaging and extremely condescending towards people with disabilities.”

DRG has ordered Nambiar to “immediately retract his statement” and “offer an unqualified apology to India’s 70 million disabled citizens”.
