Mumbai: Sanjay Dutt is an actor who doesn't talk much but when he does, he roars! Dutt is apparently perturbed with people, who are trying to create a rift between the Bachchans and him. And he is making no effort to hide his displeasure about that.

A source close to Dutt said, "Sanju is very upset with people spreading rumours about him being upset with Aishwarya. Sanju feels that some people with vested interests are trying to create misunderstanding between the Bachchans and him. Aishwarya has been the only actress approached till now for Satte Pe Satta and Sanju is prepared to wait till she decides on dates. In the meantime Sanjay Dutt Productions (SDP) will go ahead with its other projects."

A visibly agitated Dutt said, "The rumours about me being upset with Aishwarya are rubbish! I am upset with people who are spreading such rumours instead. The Bachchans are like my family. I can never be upset with them.

"We all know that filmmaking is a time-taking process. Everything takes time and happens in its due course.

Ash has told me that she needs some time and we at SDP are prepared to wait till eternity for her. It will be a pleasure working with Ash, if she agrees to do Satte Pe Satta."

The source adds that Dutt has always been very close to the Bachchan family. "In fact Sanjay and his wife Manaayata were one of the few actors invited to Abhishek and Aishwarya's wedding."

The last time Dutt and Aishwarya had worked together was in David Dhawan's Hum Kissi Se Kum Nahi along with Amitabh Bachchan and Ajay Devgan.

Dutt's Satte Pe Satta is said to be a remake of Raj N Sippy's Satte Pe Satta (1982) and is the story of seven brothers living on a large farmhouse.

Amitabh Bachchan and Hema Malini were the main leads in the original film. In the remake, Dutt will play Bachchan's part while Aishwarya is supposed to essay Hema's role.
