Singh’s spokesperson denied the news
According to reports, handsome hunk Ranveer Singh has rejected the movie offer to work opposite Katrina Kaif, in order to make his girlfriend Deepika Padukone happy. Padukone and Kaif‘s cold war is one of the most gossiped B-town secrets.
The leading ladies have been engaging in a low-key battle ever since Kaif started dating Padukone’s ex, Ranbir Kapoor. Though Kapoor and Kaif separated after a short while, the conflict has worsened further with the B-town beauties competing with each other for movies. Reports suggest, this cold war has been affecting people around the stars, too, and Padukone’s current boyfriend, Ranveer Singh, has rejected a film with Kaif just because of this whole drama.
According to Deccan Chronicle, Baar Baar Dekho director Nitya Mehra approached Singh for a film that stared Kaif alongside him. Singh initially turned down the offer but Mehra’s close friend Zoya Akhtar convinced him to do the film.
Singh and Kaif met at Akhtar’s party to try and make this pair work. Apparently, though the film looks and sounds great, Singh politely said no to the offer to keep his ladylove happy.
Reportedly, Singh has been playing the peacemaker between Kaif and Padukone, but that might not be enough to work alongside Kaif. Interestingly, Kaif follows Singh on Instagram, too.
When the publication contacted Singh’s spokesperson, she denied the news and said, “There is no truth in this.”
Padukone had earlier said that she was fond of Kaif. “Sometimes you have a certain feeling for other people and they don’t necessarily feel the same way about you. But that’s okay. I am extremely fond of Katrina professionally and personally,” she had said.
Meanwhile, all the actors are busy with their current projects. Kaif will be seen opposite her ex-beau Kapoor in Anurag Basu’s Jagga Jasoos. She’s also working opposite Salman Khan for the second installment of Ek Tha Tiger. She has also been finalized for Aamir Khan’s Thugs of Hindostan and SRK’s next by Aanand L Rai.
On the other hand, Singh and Padukone are working on Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati. Sources inform, Singh will be seen in Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy along with Alia Bhatt. Currently, the lovelorn actor is thinking about shifting in Padukone’s neighborhood to reduce the distance and is busy searching a home in Padukone’s vicinity.
