War of words between Anushka Sharma, Sushant Singh Rajput
All is not well between actors Anushka Sharma and Sushant Singh Rajput, who will be seen acting together in Peekay.
The shooting for the film has just begun and there are rumours about tension brewing between the two actors.
Reportedly, Anushka Sharma, who was last seen in Vishal Bharadwaj’s Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola, said: “Sushant has only eight days of work…he is just a small chapter in my life.”
To which Sushant Singh Rajput replied: “I will have to check the schedule to know exactly how many days I am shooting. As far as being a small chapter is concerned, I hope it’s an interesting one in her (Anushka) life. I come from the school of actors who believe there are no small roles, there are only small actors.”
Seems like Sushant Singh Rajput, who is waiting for the release of his Bollywood debut Kai Po Che!, won’t take anything lying down.
Peekay, which is directed by Rajkumar Hirani, also features Aamir Khan and we wonder what the ace actor has to say about the bitter battle between his fellow colleagues.
