Ekta Kapoor at loggerheads with Imran Khan
Producer Ekta Kapoor and Bollywood actor Imran Khan’s tussle has gone worse as both of them are not ready to stop the blame game. Their relationship turned sour basically after ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Dobaara’ promotional activities. It is heard that Imran is not happy with the aggressive promotion style of Ekta.
Ekta and Imran have been exchanging arguments in media and it seems to be a non-stop affair. If one says something, the other bounces back immediately. Imran said that he loved working with director Milan Luthria but not happy with the promotional activities.
“When you have hits, people cosy up, when you have flops, they pull you down. I find it amusing. This is industry in unbelievable,” says Ekta Kapoor who hits back at Imran Khan on aggressive promotional activities statement.
Imran Khan on the contrary said, “I don’t want to say anything bad publicly. Jeetuji (Jeetendra) has known our family for years. So out of respect for Jeetuji, I won’t say anything about this. I don’t want to be disrespectful towards anyone.”
Ekta Kapoor said she had a great time working with Akshay Kumar and Milan Luthria with whom she has worked on ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbai’, and ‘The Dirty Picture’ and now ‘Once Upon Ay Time In Mumbai Dobaara’.
“There are always going to be some bad experience, but you have to live with them. We are not in the business of saving lives”, says an agitated Ekta Kapoor.
Well, Imran had to face the consequence of the tiff. He was replaced by Ekta Kapoor with Shahid Kapoor in Milan Talkies next.
On replacing Imran with Shahid Kapoor she says, “Milan Talkies requires a certain aggression and push. I am not commenting on any actor; I find it embarrassing to discuss that. Milan Talkies is the hottest film on our plate now.”
Imran wished good luck to Shahid Kapoor sarcastically, “I simply wished a co-actor good luck”, says Imran Khan.
“People have different opinions, and they don’t always need to agree with each
other. Milan Talkies needs a certain amount of aggression and push. I’m not
commenting on any actor; I find it embarrassing to discuss that,” the daily
quoted Ekta Kapoor as saying.
The movie will be directed by actor director Tigmanshu Dhulia of ‘Paan Singh Tomar’ fame.
