For the last few weeks gone by, there have been rumours floating around Priyanka Chopra throwing her weight around on the sets of Gunday. It was also being said that she was making her co-stars (Arjun Kapoor and Ranveer Kapoor) hear it loud and clear that she is the one who was the experienced lot around.
Well, as it always happens in instances like these, the ones who were said to be the disgruntled ones have a different story to tell.
“This is all coming out of thin air and nothing like that actually took place on location and in such sinister manner during the shoot of Gunday,” says a source, “Whenever there is a much hyped film in the making with good stakes involved, rumours of all kinds start floating around. This is just one of them. Priyanka is too dignified an actor to be actually throwing tantrums or have starry airs around her.”
While one waits to hear what Ranveer has to say about the alleged incidents (or the lack of them), Arjun comes out in open. “I am glad someone has asked me to at least clarify this, otherwise such loose talk is simply weird,” says Arjun, “Nothing like that ever happened with Priyanka. Honestly, I don’t even know what I should say for such matters. She has been a star for so many years and no tantrums have ever come into picture. She is too big to be indulging in such behaviour.”
He in fact turns nostalgic when quizzed further around the so-called episodes. “I actually know her from even before the time when I had started off as an actor. I was an assistant on Salaam-e-Ishq and used to call her by saying – ‘Madam, shot ready hai’. Till date I tell her that ‘Madam aap aaiye naa’. The only difference is that earlier only she was in front of the camera and today both of us are. I am very fond of her and love her as an actor. She has not changed at all and that is the hallmark of a true star and an actor.”
