"It is important to have a good director to enhance one's performance on screen. The worst thing to happen to me is a bad director," states Kangna Ranaut in the latest issue of a popular Bollywood magazine as she talks about life post Fashion and how she had almost lost control of her life till some time back.
That's not all. While she speaks fondly about her first ever director Anurag Basu (Gangster) and acknowledges that it was his faith in her that turned her into an actor that she is today, she reveals that she shares a love-hate relationship with Mohit Suri (Woh Lamhe, Raaz - The Mystery Continues) and how Madhur Bhandarkar would make her feel special during the filming of Fashion and get her chocolates. However, a shocker comes in the statement she makes about Suneel Darshan, the man who paired her opposite Upen Patel in the musical Shakalaka Boom Boom.
She says, "Suneel Darshan gave me the worst time of my life during Shakalaka Boom Boom. They didn't even pay me for it. I felt really bad but it's okay now."
What does Suneel Darshan, the man who has worked with the likes of Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar, Sunny Deol, Karisma Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra, Bipasha Basu and Bobby Deol, have to say about this accusation? Especially when the statement is being made more than one and a half years after the film has been released.
"Frankly, I can't stoop to her level and she doesn't really deserve a reply," says Suneel Darshan.
Isn't he disappointed with such a remark? "See, any retaliation will open up too many controversies and there is no sense washing dirty linen in public. Let bygones be bygones. I too wish to move ahead with hope and a positive outlook towards life", sighs Darshan.
He rounds off with, "surely, if she has a conscience, she will regret her disgusting behavior. Else, forget it!"
