Shahid Kapoor’s soured friendship with producer Madhu Mantenahas cost him a prized role as mathematician Anand Kumar in the bio-pic Super 30 that Vikas Bahl would direct.
In fact Anand Kumar for a very long time went along with the idea ofShahid playing him in the bio-pic. The busy mathematician even made time to catch up on some of Shahid’s film including,ahem,Shaandaar.
Shahid was also very excited about his first real-life character.
Then the fall-out between the producer and the actor happened.
Says a source, “When Madhu Mantena and Shahid Kapoor ceased to be friends their professional equation also ended. Shahid found himself out of Super 30(the Anand Kumar bio-pic.”
Not that Shahid is moping over the loss. He is busy playing DeepikaPadukone’s husband in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati where the two have just shot an exquisitely poetic romantic song.
