Actor Shahid Kapoor has said that he doesn't recall much about his 'muddy' kissing scene with Rangoon co-star Kangana Ranaut. In an appearance on Neha Dhupia's chat show BFFs, as Shahid Kapoor avoided giving a direct answer to the host's inquiries. Shahid and Kangana broadly didn't get along on the sets of the period drama, which is directed by Vishal Bhardwaj.
He stated, "That is an extremely random question! Extremely random memories... Kuch yaad hi nahi aa raha hai. Blank ho gaya hoon main, yaar (I'm blanking out, can't seem to remember anything). If it was in the keechad (mud), it was keechady (muddy).”
It was rumoured that Shahid Kapoor and Kangana Ranaut were engaged with a harsh fight on the set of the film, reportedly over screen time. The actor did, however, promote the film together. One such promotional appearance was the infamous Koffee with Karan episode in which Kangana made comments against host Karan Johar, and accused him for promoting nepotism. That feud rage on to this day.
Asked about the quarrel at a press event, Shahid stated, “Just take it easy bro...take it easy...take it easy. It is all good.”
Kangana, meanwhile, told to the media, "I don't pay much notice to mischief-makers, whether they are contemporaries or competition. These mischief-makers are mostly unnecessary publicists who do everything possible to malign you and get you in trouble. I keep a watch on everything. On the off chance that it's disturbing and I anticipate a bigger snare, I hit back. I don’t care about bugs in the bed." She included, "I don't perceive any inconvenience between us. Obviously, we weren't pally, which most likely was confounded. Individuals need to understand that we don't go to work to make friends."
Kangana had described kissing Shahid as ‘disgusting’ in a past interview. "Shahid's moustache was horrible and it (kissing) would disturb. At that point he would keep telling me that he has a runny nose which helps it to stick," she said. Shahid denied making the remark and said that Kangana should move on genially. "I need to tell you that Kangana makes up things in her mind. She has a distinctive creative mind. I don't remember disclosing to her this by any stretch of the imagination," he said.
In the work front, Shahid Kapoor will next be seen in the romantic thriller Kabir Singh, which also stars Kiara Advani. The film is slated for release on June 21. Kangana is preparing for the release of Mental Hai Kya, which also stars Rajkummar Rao. Produced by Ekta Kapoor, the film is slated for release on July 26.
