With their new film all set to release soon, Anil Kapoor and Ajay Devgn are going all out for the promotional activities around it.
However, it remains to be seen if co-star Kangna Ranaut will accompany them for some of these events. Reason: The actress was given a major cold shoulder by Devgn at the film’s music launch in Delhi recently and now she is believed to have decided to stay away from him for a while.
The royal snub
A source present at the launch of the Priyadarshan-directed film in the capital tells us that Ajay and Kangna didn’t even exchange glances when they came together on the stage, let alone exchange pleasantries.
“So much so that even producer Ratan Jain was worried how the ‘ignorance is bliss’ stance between his lead pair would shift the focus away from the music launch,” says our source, adding that the rift between the once-upon-a-time friends was evident when Ajay didn’t mention Kangna’s name even once while speaking.
“While Ajay praised Sameera (Reddy) for the action sequences she has done and thanked Anil, Priyan and Ratan for the wonderful experience of working in the film, he didn’t mention Kang’s name even once.
More so since they’re paired together and the crux of the story exists solely on the circumstances their on-screen characters face. And Kangna was so upset with this ignorance that she decided to avoid Ajay by not accompanying the cast on promotional tours,” says our source.
It is believed that the Ajay-Kangna friendship soured during the making of Rascals. Later, she had difference with his buddy Sanjay Dutt who felt she was unfairly using his name. Ajay then preferred to side with Dutt.
