For the director of Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron, one of the most brilliant social satires of Indian cinema, it comes as an embarrassing shock to be accused of muscling into Sujoy Ghosh's territory to direct the sequel to Kahaani 2.
"Why would I want to make Kahaani 2? That's Sujoy Ghosh's domain. I think he did a brilliant job in Kahaani. The way he recreated the bustle and tension of Kolkata was amazing. I don't think any other director could do justice to the Kahaani brand."
Explaining how he became embroiled in this unsavoury controversy, Kundan Shah says, "I went to the producer Jayantilal Gada with a woman-oriented subject. It was his idea to name it Kahaani 2 as he says the rights and title are with him. But I am not comfortable with this at all. Why should I claim any creative right over the Kahaani franchise? »
