Mumbai, April 7 (Calcutta Tube) Bollywood actor Nana Patekar said box-office cannot be predicted. The actor further said that Ranbir Kapoor did not have confidence in Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani and the film was still a hit.
During a public event for their forthcoming film ‘Rajneeti‘ in Delhi Saturday, Nana declared in front of media persons that Ranbir had no faith in the last film that starred him and Katrina Kaif — ‘Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani’.
For a minute there was a stunned silence among the stars of ‘Rajneeti,’ especially Katrina, who tried not to look embarrassed.
‘Yes this incident did happen. A media person asked Nana if he feels ‘Rajneeti’ would be a success. Nana rightly replied there’s no predicting the box office. That Ranbir had no faith in ‘Ajab Prem…’ which was such a success. You know how Nana is. He speaks from the heart,’ says the upcoming film’s director Prakash Jha.
Both of them call a spade a spade and don’t care for the repercussions. But Ranbir did not foresee that Nana’s blunt speak could cause him public embarrassment.
During their long schedule in Bhopal, Nana and Ranbir had many meals together, to which no other member of the crew was invited, and discussed all things cinema – from Raj Kapoor to Mehul Kumar.
