'Band Baaja Baraat' actor pans Salman's latest release saying the film's boring and people who watched it needed a balm for their headaches.
Ranveer Singh may be just two-movies old in the film industry and still not deciphered the code to be successful. But he surely has learnt how to stay in news all the time: By being controversial.
And the youngster whose next film 'Lootera' is set to launch in 2013 seems eager to stir up a hornet's nest.
On August 21st, Ranveer panned Salman Khan's latest blockbuster 'Ek Tha Tiger', saying he liked only the last 15 minutes of the film. He wrote on the micro-blogging site, `EK THA TIGER felt absolute bore bt (sic) last 15min was magical. nice stunt nd action @beingsalmankhan pra.`
While neither the industry nor Salman's family has responded to the tweets, a Hindi news channel ran a package on the tweet. This seemed to get the 'Band Baaja Baraat' hero excited and he told his over 13 thousand followers on twitter on Tuesday, `Guys switch to aajtak channel fast. U will get to know how fake i am.`
He seemed to be reveling in the role as he added on twitter, `I have criticized 'Ek Tha Tiger' on twitter and a special episode is coming on aaj tak now threatening me. Mai darta nai.`
One would be wrong to think that that was the end of the episode, but Ranveer had other ideas. Upping his criticism of 'Ek Tha Tiger', he tweeted, `While I was passing through a multiplex people aftr seeing EK THA TIGER was asking for TIGER BAAM.`
The fact that many of his fans were enjoying these tweets was evident in their responses. But while clearly entertaining for his fans, its not clear how these tweets would be received by the film industry and more specifically Salman Khan? After all, Salman is known to hold grudges for a long time.
So, for now, one can only wait and watch since the ball is in 'Salman's court.
