Promoting movies on the small screen is unavoidable for any movie before its release. More so, when it involves a show like Big Boss, one can’t ignore. So, Anushka Sharma and Imran Khan, the leads of Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola had to follow suit and so landed in the sets of Big Boss.
On Friday evening, the couple visited the show. While Imran seemed very comfortable in the presence of Salman, Anushka seemed visibly uncomfortable all the same. And we hear from a birdie that the reason for this uneasiness is Anushka’s closeness to Salman’s arch rival Shahrukh Khan.
According to a source, “Anushka made her debut with Shah Rukh Khan and was also recently seen in Jab Tak Hai Jaan which again had SRK as her co-star. She might not have chosen to get in to any camps but the industry has clearly branded her as someone close to SRK. So, it was definitely awkward for her to promote the film at Salman’s show. On the other hand, Imran is on very good terms with Salman and the feeling is very much mutual.”
“During a recent awards ceremony, it was quite evident that Anushka was not very comfortable around Salman. In fact, when her dear co-star Imran, from whom she has been pretty much inseperable these days, was speaking to Salman backstage, Anushka chose to make herself scarce. Salman and she didn’t even acknowledge each other’s presence; even Imran chose not to introduce her to Salman. Moreover, when rumours of her being in Sajid Nadiadwala’s Kick opposite Salman surfaced, she has chosen to deny them saying that she was never approached,” revealed another source.
Since both the actors are professionals, there is no doubt that the shoot must have gone without any problems. But, we wonder what must have happened behind the sets!
