Shah Rukh Khan, who is known for his cool temperament, particularly with his heroines, these days, is quite peeved at Deepika Padukone, with whom he shares a great rapport at the box office. Remember the hit films of the duo like OM SHANTI OM, CHENNAI EXPRESS and HAPPY NEW YEAR.
According to reports Bollywood’s two big budget movies viz. Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol starrer DILWALE directed by ‘Numero Uno’ director Rohit Shetty and Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh starrer BAJIRAO MASTANI are at logger heads this December at the box office.
Shah Rukh Khan was expecting that Sanjay Leela Bhansali would push the release date of BAJIRAO MASTANI ahead and avoid clashing with his film DILWALE but hurting his ego Sanjay Leela Bhansali has dared to stick to the same date when SRK’s DILWALE releases.
To rub salt to Shah Rukh Khan’s injuries, BAJIRAO MASTANI’s heroine Deepika Padukone has posted ‘Challenge Accepted’ while releasing the first look of her film BAJIRAO MASTANI, thus in directing hinting that she and her team are up for the challenge against Badshah Khan.
The reason why SRK is more upset is because it was Shah Rukh Khan, who gave Deepika Padukone, the big break in his home production OM SHANTI OM and now the same Deepika Padukone is challenging him!
What is worth remembering is that this not the first time when Sanjay Leela Bhansali has dared to challenge Shah Rukh.
Readers may recall Sanjay Leela Bhansali had challenged Shah Rukh when he released his Ranbir Kappor’s debut film SAAWAARIYA opposite Shah Rukh Khan’s Farha Khan directed OM SHANTI OM and the result of this clash is known to all!
Incidentally Deepika Padukone, who has challenged SRK, made her debut in OM SHANTI OM!!!
