Though unwillingly, Ranveer Singh has let the cat out of the bag. His acting skills were lauded extensively in Band Baaja Baraat but Ranveer proved to be quite an amateur at improvisation.
While shooting an episode with Anushka Sharma on Karan Johar's chat show Koffee With Karan, Ranveer accidentally referred to Rani Mukerji as "MD" of Yash Raj Films while not taking her name.
Ranveer has a three-film contract with Yash Raj Films and happens to be Aditya Chopra's blue-eyed boy. Our source said, "The conversation on the show was between KJo and Anushka Sharma and Karan asked Anushka if she thought she could act better than all other actresses in the industry.
Anushka said, 'Yes, barring one.' Before she could say who, Ranveer, who had been silent, blurted out the question, 'MD?' and before anyone else, KJo said, 'Oh, let's not go that path'."
According to industry sources Rani is believed to be the one calling the shots at YRF. And if this rumour were anything to go by, Ranveer accidentally affirmed it.
Though Anushka spoke soon enough and said that she was referring to Kareena Kapoor, the damage was done.
The source added, "It is known that ever since Rani has been dating Adi, the head honcho of YRF Films, she is one of the most feared people in Yash Raj Studios.
She is believed to be one of the key decision makers in the YRF camp. Ranveer might have referred to Rani, hoping Anushka would name her and in turn impress Adi."
Whilst a lot may be lost in translation we would still give Ranveer benefit of the doubt and ask: were you referring to Madhuri Dixit by any chance.
