When Kangana Ranaut Had Snubbed Randeep Hooda



When recently  Kangana Ranaut’s sister  Rangoli lashed out at Randeep Hooda calling him, among other things, a permanent  failure,I  suddenly remembered my lunch appointment  where,very foolishly , I had invited bothRandeep and Kangana together.

This  was  soon after Kangana’s  Gangster had released. I was very impressed. And Kangana was  very  grateful for  my  praise.She  was keen to  meet me , and I her.During a visit  to Mumbai I  invited her to lunch at the Marriott. But I also invited Randeep who was at that time  a friend and already an established name.

Randeep arrived  first.And  Kangana  joined us later. This  was  the  first time we had met, Kangana and I , and she  seemed  very excited talking fast and  furiously and eating well too.

I was very impressed by how dexterously she  could eat and talk.I  can never do  both  at the same time. Randeepobserved the talkative  livewire  carefully , not saying much. But then the  acting teacher within Randeep suddenly surfaced and he  began to give (unsolicited) gyan  to Kangana about acting,how to speak her lines,  whom to work with, etc  etc.

At first Kangana was quiet.She then  interrupted him  in a shrill voice, “I don’t need you advice  on  how to run my career.”

Ouch!I think the  people at the next table  heard her.

I  didn’t know  where to look.So I looked intently at  the malai  kofta on my plate. The lunch  went  downhill from there, and we  rapidly wrapped  up our meal and left.

Randeep  was  of course  understandably hurt. But  not as  much as Kangana who  called me  the same evening and  gave me a tongue-lashing, “Sir,  why did you have  to invite someone  else? Next time when we meet  please don’t invite a third  person.”

She was right. During those days  I really appreciated  Kangana’s bluntspeak  .She would say exactly what she felt and didn’t care who it was. About one   of her  leading men her comment  was, “Dilli ke mithai ke dukaan walalagta hai.”

I  still don’t know what it means. But  I am laughing  as I write  about her description.  Yes, Kangana you used to be fun.

What happened  to you?
