‘Besharam’ actress Pallavi Sharda snubs Ranbir Kapoor

Few days back, it was reported that all is not well between Ranbir Kapoor and his co-star Pallavi Sharda and now more reports are coming up about their differences.  At the first media launch of the upcoming film, ‘Besharam’, on Thursday night Pallavi Sharda raised many eyebrows for  being missed out the event. The film’s lead actor Ranbir Kapoor and director Abhinav Singh Kashyap were present, Pallavi’s absence from the event was rather noticeable. When asked, it was known that hectic shooting schedule made the actress for a no-show.

The organizers were miffed at the last minute absence of the actress.

A crew member says, “Both Ranbir and Pallavi were shooting for a song in Film City the whole day. Since their shoot went on for long, the timing for the event too was pushed back thrice. Finally it started very late around 11 pm. Just before the event, Pallavi told the crew she was too tired to attend. Also, she didn’t hav enough time to get ready for the launch.”

However, a friend of the actress showcased a different picture. “That’s not true. Pallavi and the rest of the cast were never supposed to be part of this function. It was a case of miscommunication between the production and the marketing team. She is a newcomer and she can never give such bizarre excuses,” she says.

Ranbir asked the director to interact with the media alone. “Perhaps, this was their way of organising an event exclusively for him,” adds the actress’ friend.

Few days back, it was reported that Ranbir, who is usually friendly with his co-stars maintained distant from Pallavi. They were reports of differences between them from the film set.

Ranbir wants Katrina Kaif for the role but Abhinav chose Pallavi.

A source says, “Everyone was quite surprised when Pallavi’s name was announced to star opposite Ranbir in Abhinav Singh Kashyap’s film. They didn’t quite get along on the sets. Ranbir would be in his elements during the shoot but appeared distant during his scenes with Pallavi.”

Ranbir hardly interacted with Pallavi after the shots. When not shooting, they were spotted in their respective corners.

Currently, Ranbir is busy shooting in Sri Lanka. He remained unavailable for comment. However, the co-producer of ‘Besharam’, Himanshu Mehra says, “Ranbir is a very supporting and encouraging co-star. He is a team player. Pallavi and Ranbir share great chemistry both on screen and off.”
