Are Fukrey Returns co-stars Pulkit Samrat and Ali Fazal having a major cold war?
They may be the best of friends on screen, but ‘fukras’ Ali Fazal and Pulkit Samrat do not see eye to eye in real life, if a report in DNA is to be believed. Apparently, Pulkit has gotten too big for his boots and has been giving the team of Fukrey Returns a hard time. Not just this, he hogged the spotlight at the film’s promotions, something that did not go down too well with his co-star, Ali.
“Both of them don’t share an equation at all. Ali is definitely a bigger star today, given that he’s doing some plum projects in Bollywood and Hollywood. On the other hand, Pulkit’s films have been non-starters. And he has been a trouble maker for the whole team and his tantrums left everyone livid. Ali was upset with Pulkit hogging all the limelight during the Fukrey promotions. He even refused to be part of a few promotional activities but he didn’t make it obvious,” a source told the publication.
Ali also created a potentially awkward moment for Pulkit when he invited the latter’s estranged wife, Shweta Rohira, to the screening of Fukrey Returns. Ali and his girlfriend, Richa Chadha, are quite close to Shweta and invited her without Pulkit’s knowledge. Meanwhile, Pulkit invited his girlfriend, Yami Gautam.
For the uninitiated, Pulkit and Shweta’s marriage ended in less than a year. Shweta blamed his Sanam Re co-star Yami for being the home-breaker. Needless to say, the three of them do not share a cordial relationship and a face-off would have been extremely unpleasant. Lucky for Pulkit and Yami, Shweta was not in town and could not attend the event.
Meanwhile, Fukrey Returns is having a fantastic run at the box office, and earned Rs 32.20 in its opening weekend.
