The Band Baaja Baaraat actor acts pricey at an awards event
Hey, here’s a pop question. Guess who is today’s equivalent of Rajesh Khanna? No, it’s not Shahid Kapoor. Nor any of the other chocolate boy heroes. It’s Ranveer Singh. Yes, the actor who made his debut with Band Baaja Baarat and remained charming till the movie released, is now going around with a swelled head. Recently, at the FICCI Frames 2011 event, Ranveer almost ran past the waiting photographers without even a pause even as they shouted for him to strike a pose. Of course, that left everyone frustrated. All right, so he had an excuse. The event had already started. But what about after? Almost all the award winners that night – including Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Vidya Balan and Sonakshi Sinha – posed with their trophies and even spoke to the mediapersons, but Ranveer just escaped into the night. Just because this is the umpteenth award you have won for his performance in Band Baaja Baarat does not mean you can ignore the media, Ranveer. Wait to do that after Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl becomes a super hit. Or you’ll just go the Rajesh Khanna way. Remember how he was the nation’s heartthrob once, but is nowhere now? Then there was Kumar Gaurav. None of his films attained the success that his debut Love Story did. So Ranveer, learn your lesson and woo the media as ardently you have been wooing Kareena Kapoor.
