Is Emraan threatened by Randeep?
Hashmi apparently wants his role in Jannat 2 to be as, if not more, powerful than Hooda's
Yet another war seems to be brewing in B-Town, and this time it does not involve the superstar Khans or the industry's leading ladies.
Ever since their first movie Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai together, Emraan Hashmi and Randeep Hooda have apparently not shared the friendliest of vibes.
And now, the hostility between the two is slowly bubbling to the surface, threatening to disrupt the making of a new film they've signed together.
Apparently, Emraan is not happy about the powerful nature of Randeep's role in Jannat 2. He has asked director Kunal Deshmukh, who also happens to be his friend, to make certain changes that would make his own character as, if not more, powerful.
However, Deshmukh is unwilling to give in to any of his demands. "I guess, since Emraan played the lead in Jannat, he feels this franchise is his domain.
However, Jannat 2 has been scripted as a two-hero film, so we aren't changing anything. Randeep's role will be given the same care, and will be subject to the same detailing as Emraan's," says Kunal.
According to our source, Emraan feels he should not be taken for granted in any Bhatt film given his relationship with them.
"He feels that he's a Bhatt camp ka bachcha. He has not taken kindly to Deshmukh's directorial obstinacy, as he feels that after doing two films with the director they share a comfort level that cannot be taken for granted."
While it's great that Kunal has decided to go with his director's instincts, we're sure he'll have plenty of fireworks to deal with on the sets once the shoot for Jannat 2 begins.
