Earlier this week starlet Isha Koppkar, the Khallas girl, who had made an impression in movies like Company and Don, created a stir by accusing a superstar whom she called a “morning person” thereby leaving no room for ambiguity (there is one Bollywood superstar who is a morning person) of unbecoming behaviour when she was barely out of her teens.
However sources in the know say Isha has maintained a “warm” relationship with the Superstar over the years.
“She is most cordial to both the Superstar and his wife. She even wished him on his birthday this year and they participated together at a sports event. If you have such a deep sense of resentment about someone why would you him on his birthday?” says a source.
According to this source close to the Superstar, Isha was resentful as she lost a plum role because, as he claims , she didn’t oblige the superstar. However the source close to the Superstar has a completely different story to tell. “The role that Isha is now cribbing about was offered to Priyanka Chopra, and the Superstar had nothing to do with it. It was the director, who was also the film’s producer, who took call on casting another actress.”
As for the insinuation that the Superstar asked Isha not to come to meet him accompanied by her driver the source says, “How would the driver have affected her meeting with the Superstar? Would he have accompanied her into the venue of their appointment? If it was her mother or sister whom the Superstar forbade her from bringing along then his intentions could be questionable.”
Isha Koppikar didn’t mince words in a recent interview when she spoke about the casting couch in the industry. The actress is making a comeback to Bollywood after a long while.
