Kangana Ranaut and Shahid Kapoor may have shared crackling chemistry while shooting for Rangoon, but in reality, the two are absolutely formal with each other. Though the actors are promoting their upcoming period drama together, media is abuzz with reports that the two don’t get along well.
Adding fuel to the fire are the recent reports which suggest that Kangana took potshots at Shahid. Reportedly, in an interview, Kangana said that sharing a cottage with Shahid was a ‘nightmare’ and that doing an intimate scene with him and kissing him on-screen was a ‘disgusting’ experience.
“I don’t like intimate scenes in a film. They are the most difficult to shoot. You have a formal equation with someone and suddenly you are into each other’s mouth. That big moustache of Shahid is horrible. It was such a … Not a turn-off but a tragedy of different level! When I asked him about it, he said he applies wax and has a running nose! Mera naak isme bah ke jaata hai,” confessed Kangana on her intimate scenes with Shahid.
Interestingly, Shahid in an interview with a popular daily, was asked on his reaction to Kangana’s explosive statement. To that, the actor replied, “I have to tell you that Kangana makes up things in her head. She has a vivid imagination. I don’t remember telling her all this at all.”
Today, when we met Kangana for an interview, we asked her about it. The actress laughed over the statement.
She then quipped, “That line he (Shahid) must have borrowed from Hrithik. He would have thought that dude I will borrow these claims from Hrithik.”
Kangana continued further, “I haven’t said such things. I give my version of situation. When you are enacting a scene, we don’t do time pass. When we are asked questions on intimate scenes, especially to girls, there is a sleazy undertone to it. ‘Kaise laga aapko kiss karke?‘ What am I supposed to say? I can’t say acha laga ya kharab laga. My purpose is to answer it as an actor. So as an actor I said there were 50 people while we were shooting in the mud scene. And my co-actor had a cold. So it was the most convenient thing to do. It was made into a horrible…. I don’t take these things seriously. Also, media needs to understand that they shouldn’t ask such questions. They ask me who is the better kisser? Mujhe kya lena dena? What do you mean? These men have just had babies and we don’t look at them in that way. This is our work and it is our rozi roti. But people talk in such a frivolous way. And I never talk like that about my work. There is always a risk of being misquoted horribly but it is better than saying I love Shahid’s boxers. Isn’t it better? (laughs).”
Well, we wonder what Sasha and Duggu will have to say to this!
