Shatrughan livid over reports of Sonakshi's link-up with Ranveer
The angry actor calls up daughter and 'Lootera' unit asking for an explanation
As the story goes, Shatrughan Sinha, the strict disciplinarian that he is, granted his daughter Sonakshi Sinha the permission to act in films, but with one condition. She was to never compromise her family's dignity.
So when recent media reports emerged linking Sonakshi to her Lootera-co-star Ranveer Singh, and even claiming that the two, who are currently in Kolkata shooting for the film, were going to take a day off on February 14 to celebrate Valentine's Day with each other, a livid Shatrughan called up his daughter and unit members asking for an explanation.
According to sources, Shatrughan even demanded that his daughter be sent home to Mumbai immediately.
It was only after a number of requests that the senior actor was pacified. According to a source, who is a close friend of the Sinhas, everyone is at their wit's end wondering who could be behind the rumour.
"Sonakshi is as friendly with Ranveer as any other co-star. She's wondering who's spreading these rumours of a romance when there's nothing between them."
When contacted, Lootera's producer Vikas Bahl said, "I can tell you this much. Sonakshi and Ranveer were shooting for the film on February 14 in Kolkata. There was no question of them taking the day off." "I can vouch for this, there's nothing between the two," he added.
Clearly miffed by the rumours and the anger it has caused Shatrughan, when asked about who could be behind the rumours, Sonakashi said, "How do I know where these rumours are coming from? Ranveer and I are co-stars. Nothing more."
