Ekta Kapoor is said to be extremely unhappy with Riteish Deshmukh. The grapevine has it that this is because Riteish isn’t willing to commit to the third instalment of the hit franchise, Kyaa Kool Hai Hum.
Says a source, “Riteish wants to stay away from the sex comedy genre, particularly since all his recent films have done well at the box office. Although he has not turned down the film, he has not allotted any time to discuss the project either.”
The source adds that given Ekta’s instrumental role in building Riteish’s career, the actor has a lot of respect for her. “But as an actor, only he can decide on the films he wants to do. No one else can take that call on his behalf.
He wants to experiment and grow as an actor, so doing repetitive roles will adversely affect his career,” says a source close to the actor. Ekta was unavailable for comment.
