Salman Khan and Ranbir Kapoor can™t actually be called good friends. Some may tell they can™t be called friends at all. But at an event, yesterday afternoon, when asked about Ranbir and his much talked about item number in Salman Khan™s co-production Chillar Party, Khan did not mind answering them.In fact, if truth be told, he answered them quite happily because this was his chance to subtly show the Kapoor boy his place.
The event launched the first promo of the children™s film. When the media, unable to contain themselves, asked Salman how he agreed to an item number by Ranbir in it, he laughed and said, Director Vikas Bahl told me the concept of the Ranbir video. In it, kids after watching Ranbir perform, will decide that he is not good enough and they should go to Sallu. I immediately said yes.¯Salman, however, did not stop at that. Speaking about portions of the Ranbir song being removed from the first promo, he said, It all depends on me. If I want, I can even remove the entire song.¯ Interestingly, Salman™s film Ready, which released yesterday, had a not-so-nice reference to the same Kapoor boy.
The initial sequence in Ready has Prem Kapoor played by Salman, running away with Arbaaz Khan™s bride-to-be in the film, played by Zareen Khan. There was a scene where Arbaaz™s character, in frustration, remarks how the Kapoors take away others™ girls. However, just before the release it was edited.The line was a direct hit at Ranbir Kapoor who is said to be the reason behind Salman and Katrina™s breakup. Funnily, if you remember Zareen Khan is still remembered as Katrina Kaif™s lookalike by many!¯ revealed our source.Well, looks like Salman has become quite the entrepreneur these days, trying to keep things subtle and politically correct.
