‘Befikre’ causes rift between Ranveer Singh and Sushant Singh Rajput?
Ranveer Singh is a friendly person and goes along well with everyone, but there is a strong buzz that the ‘Bajirao Mastani’ actor and Sushant Singh Rajput are not on talking terms. According to reports, the reason for this is Aditya Chopra’s upcoming film ‘Befikre’.
Apprantly, director Aditya Chopra had promised to cast Sushant in ‘Befikre’, but eventually, the film went to Ranveer. Since then, the duo has been giving each other a cold shoulder and the bitterness between them has thickened over time.
Sushant had previously worked under Aditya Chopra’s banner Yash Raj Films in ‘Shuddh Desi Romance’ which marked the debut of ‘Befikre’ actress Vaani Kapoor.
Interestingly, ‘Befikre’ is not the only film that Ranveer has ‘snatched’ away from the ‘Kai Po Che!’ actor. It is said that Sushant was also offered Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela’, but he had to drop it due to date issues.
"Everyone knows that Sushant left YRF because Adi had promised him ‘Befikre’, but later gave it to Ranveer. The rivalry between the two actors has continued since then. Sanjay Leela Bhansali's ‘Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela’ was also initially offered to Sushant, but since the actor didn't have dates, he had to turn it down," a daily quoted an insider as saying.
"Both are barely friendly to each other, the awkward energy is visible when both bump into each other, they don't party together and on social media, too, they don't acknowledge each other's releases," the insider added.
At a recently-concluded award show, Rajput even cheekily said that Singh spoils most of his interviews.
Meanwhile, Ranveer is busy with ‘Befikre’ promotions with co-star Vaani Kapoor, and has also begun shooting for Bhansali's ‘Padmavati’. Sushant, on the other hand, has wrapped up Dinesh Vijan’s ‘Raabta’, opposite Kriti Sanon, and is shooting for Homi Adjania's ‘Takadum’ opposite his ‘Shuddh Desi Romance’ co-star Parineeti Chopra.
