Is There a Rift Between Luv Ranjan and Ranbir Kapoor?
The Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety director clarifies rumours
There are reports floating in and around the media outlets regarding a major face-off between filmmaker Luv Ranjan who hit the big time with the success of Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety and Ranbir Kapoor over the remuneration and script of the film that they are doing together.
Apparently Ranbir has raised his remuneration after the success of Raj Kumar Hirani’s Sanju. But when I spoke to Ranjan who is in Manali shooting for his Ajay Devgan-Rakul Preet romcom he was taken aback.
Laughing aloud he said, “I’ve been travelling non-stop . One habit that I’ve cultivated is to not read what’s written about me and my films. And this film with Ranbir, mind you, will happen in August 2019. So it’s a little premature for us to be discussing money and the script.”
Additionally, Luv feels Ranbir is the last person to discuss money. “Ranbir is too laidback to bother with such things. To imagine that he would start throwing his weight around after the success of Sanju is just someone’s idea of putting Ranbir in his place. Stars don’t change after success as much as the people around them. Look at Kartik Aryan. He has worked hard to get where he is now. And if after Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety he is in demand why grudge him his glory? Why are we such a nation of party poopers?”
