Wonder what prompts Bollywood’s stars to make statements that they regret later. Take Jacqueline Fernandez for instance. She was seen visiting Shah Rukh Khan’s office last week, and when questioned about it by the inquisitive media the actress laughed and said she landed up at SRK’s doorstep by “mistake”.
Bizarre and ridiculous as her explanation may sound, it is easy to see where her anxiety to wriggle out of the situation comes from.
“Salman Khan,” explains a close friend. “She obviously went to Shah Rukh for a possible role in one of his films hoping no one would know, because if Bhai (Salman Khan) gets to know she’s lobbying for a part at SRK’s, Bhai won’t like it at all. Maybe she wanted to keep it under wraps until something with SRK actually materialized. But very foolish of her to dismiss the visit as a ‘mistake’. Now she’s pissed off both Salman and Shah Rukh.”
Interestingly the two Khan superstars’ heroines have been largely exclusive to each. For example, if Priyanka Chopra was seen as SRK’s heroine (after Don) Salman refused to do films with her until he was convinced she was not working with SRK anymore.
And why do you think Deepika Padukone is yet to be paired onscreen with Salman? Something to think about, isn’t it?
