Recently, the trailer of the much-awaited and anticipated movie ‘Sooryavanshi’ was released and it created a stir on social media with fans going crazy over the action-packed trailer having a stellar cast involving Akshay Kumar, Katrina Kaif, Ajay Devgn and Ranveer Singh.
However, soon after the trailer was launched the director of the movie Rohit Shetty was indulged in a controversy after he tried to take a dig at the leading actress of his movie — Katrina Kaif in his recent interview. Narrating how Katrina Kaif wanted to a redo scene from the movie, Rohit Shetty had said:
“You have to watch the take thrice. The scene with the blast has Katrina (Kaif) too. If you look closely, she is blinking (during it). After the fourth take, she came to me and asked: Can we take one more? And I said, ‘Katrina, I will tell you honestly, no one is going to look at you.’ She got so wild. She said, ‘how could you tell me this?’ and I said: Three guys are walking with blasts happening behind, nobody will notice you. And I kept that shot. In the promo, she blinks while walking. But kaun dekhega?”
Well, the comments obviously didn’t go down well with the fans of Katrina Kaif who started slamming the director for ‘insulting’ the actress. Trends like ‘Sh*me On Rohit Shetty’ and ‘Boycott Sooryavanshi’ started trending on Twitter.
Now finally the actress has opened up about the controversy and has come out to defend the director. Katrina Kaif took to her Instagram and wrote a lengthy note defending the director.
In her note, Katrina Kaif clarified that Rohit Shetty’s interview was taken out of context and a word was missing from the statement. She wrote:
“Dear Friends and Well-wishers… I normally do not comment on media reports or articles… But in this case, I feel a comment made by Rohit Sir, has been taken out of context and is been entirely misunderstood… I am referring to the comment as reported that Rohit Shetty said No one would look at me in the frame, as there are three boys there and a blast happening”, this is not what was said. I mentioned that I had blinked in the shot, and Rohit Sir said, there are four people together in the frame and a bomb blast happening, no one will notice you BLINKING. Even inspite of that, we still did one more take. I share a very warm equation and friendship with Rohit Sir and have always enjoyed our discussions on everything from Cinema to mg character and more importantly, he has always been there as a friend for me. This has been taken entirely taken out of context… Hope you all have a great day.”
