Reacting to a story that the filming rights of the Abhishek-Aishwarya wedding were given to a tv channel, the Big B says, "This is totally false. No such rights were given. And even if we were offered such a deal, we'd have rejected it outright. The wedding was a very private moment for our family and close friends."
Continues the Big B, " According to a report we've sold the filming rights for Rs 5 crores to a tv channel. We've received a letter from Mr Rajiv Bakshi to whose channel we were reported to have sold the filming rights.
He categorically states that the report was completely false. Neither have we promised photographed to any particular publication. The truth is, today I haven't got any photographs. They're expected any time now."
The Big B is very clear about protecting his family's privacy. "And if I'm called selfish for that, then yes I'm selfish. I'll protect and safeguard my family's interests.
You can judge me, condemn me and nail me for my professional conduct. But you can't follow me with cameras into my home. The wedding was a private affair. And I maintain that."
