Mumbai: Earlier the reports were rife about Kangana Ranaut working in Rajkumar Hirani’s next project. It all started with rumours about Kangana being approached to play Sanjay Dutt's wife Manyata in his biopic. Later, it was reported that the actress was indeed approached by Rajkumar Hirani but for some another project, where she was to play a comedian in the film.
Ever since the news about the two working together came out, B-Town was abuzz with speculations for quite some time. However, recent reports tell a different story altogether.
According to a report in DNA, filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani is not really thrilled with the rumours making round in B-Town. “Raju is puzzled and irritated that every time he meets Kangana, stories fly about their working together. And while he has directed her along with Mahendra Singh Dhoni in an Indian Premier League (IPL) ad, he did so at the request of Mukesh and Nita Ambani, who he is close to. The next thing he hears, is that he’s directing a film for Kangana’s home production. He’s horrified as it’s completely untrue. Also, he finds it strange that whenever he meets the actress, the media is tipped off,” a source told the daily.
The source further reveals that people in B-Town are chary of her. Reportedly, the actress invited herself to Saif Ali Khan’s recent intimate dinner get together and being the gentleman that Saif is, he just went with the flow.
The source reveals, “Fact is, her Rangoon co-stars Shahid Kapoor and Saif are closer to each other than they are to her. Saif and Hirani are gentlemen and both would never castigate her in public by giving statements against her. Hirani is unable to understand her motives for spreading fake stories. He’s not involved with her professionally in any way and feels slighted that a filmmaker of his stature is being taken for granted like this with fabricated stories of their proximity.”
