While rumor mills speculated over a cold war between Kangana Ranaut and her Tanu Weds Manu Returns co-star Swara Bhaskar , inside sources reveal that there is no truth to the news.
Several reports claimed that there was friction between the two as Swara inconvenienced Kangana and made her rework her dates ,while shooting the family entertainer.However,official sources clarify that no such episode took place and that rumors have been planted by sources with vested interests.
Swara who is a favorite with director Aanand L Rai and even starred in three of his back to back blockbusters Tanu Weds Manu, Raanjhanaa and Tanu Weds Manu Returns , was a thorough professional on the sets and a great team player ,making time to be on the sets even on days where she wasn’t shooting.
Clarifies a source, “Swara has worked with renowned directors like Sooraj Bharjatya ,Shyam Benegal and Aanand L Rai ,none of whom have had issues with her.In fact the directors have always praised her acting prowess and called her a great support to their films .Hence it was shocking that rumors of Swara making demands were doing the rounds,especially since she goes about her work minus starry airs unlike other actresses”.
Swara says,” I am very happy and excited that the film is a blockbuster hit and all the various versions of whatever alleged spat are fabricated. Kangana has delivered a tremendous performance, she is a great actor and I wish her the very best in the future. This is a time of celebration and positivity for the whole team, everything else is bygones”.
Says Aanand L Rai, “I don’t understand where these rumors stem from but there is no truth to it at all. The entire shoot of the film took off smoothly.”
