MUMBAI: Actor Shahid Kapoor says that he intentionally didn’t want to be clicked with his Udta Punjab co-star Kareena Kapoor Khan at the trailer launch of the film as the media would then only talk about it.
There were reports that former lovers Shahid and Kareena felt awkward in each other’s company at the trailer launch where their co-star Alia Bhatt, director Abhishek Chaubey among others were also present.
Present at a radio station for the film’s promotion, when Shahid was asked about the issue, he said: “Just tell me how is it decided that two people feel awkward. That we were looking at each other in a particular way? What you did find awkward?”
When pointed out that they maintained distance and didn’t click pictures together, Shahid said: “because if I and Kareena click pictures together then people will just write about it and keep talking about it only.”
Udta Punjab was earlier slated for June 17 release, but the film’s issues with the censor board might push it ahead.
