Amitabh Bachchan is unhappy about the fact that not enough has been said on the “silent success” of his latest film, Badla, directed by Sujoy Ghosh.

“About time someone started talking about this silent success .. !! because neither the Producer, nor the distributor, nor the on line Producer, or any else in the Industry, in general .. has even spent a nano second to compliment the success of this film #Badla .. thk u,” the actor tweeted.

In response, the film’s producer Shah Rukh Khan commented, “Sir hum toh wait kar rahein hain ki aap party kab de rahein hain hum sabko (Sir, we are waiting for you to throw a party for all of us! We are waiting outside Jalsa every night!”

Amitabh Bachchan then wrote back questioning Khan that he worked in the film, contributed selflessly in the promotions of the film then why should he even give a party for the film’s success.

Khan known for his quick wit continued the banter. “Sir film aapki hai… acting aapki hai… Hit aapki wajah se hai… aap na hote toh film hi na hoti. Toh party…bhi (Sir, it’s your film, your acting, a hit because of you. The film wouldn’t have been possible without you… So party also…?”

Badla has by far crossed all box-office predictions and done extremely well despite being in the race with big films like Luka Chuppi and Kesari. It is still bringing business. According to latest figures shared by film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh, the film grossed a total of Rs 85.26 crore with gross box-office collections already crossing Rs 100 crore.

Badla stars Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu in the lead roles. The crime thriller is an adaptation of Spanish film The Invisible Guest.
