Recently, Sooryavanshi director Rohit Shetty made some comments on actress Katrina Kaif, that did not go down well with people on the Internet. He had reportedly said in an interview that no one would pay attention to Katrina in an action scene when there are actors like Akshay Kumar, Ranveer Singh and Ajay Devgn in the scene.
The filmmaker’s remarks irked netizens to such an extent that he was massively trolled on social media, and #ShameOnYouRohitShetty also started trending on Twitter.
Amidst the trolling, Katrina had come out in support of her director Rohit Shetty and defended his comments stating, “Dear Friends and Well-wishers... I normally do not comment on media reports or articles... But in this case, I feel a comment made by Rohit Sir has been taken out of context and is been entirely misunderstood. I am referring to the comment as reported that Rohit Shetty said, ‘No one would look at me in the frame, as there are three boys there and a blast happening’, this is not what was said.
“I mentioned that I had blinked in the shot, and Rohit sir said, ‘there are four people together in the frame and a bomb blast happening, no one will notice you BLINKING.’ Even, inspite of that, we still did one more take. I share a very warm equation and friendship with Rohit sir and have always enjoyed our discussions on everything from cinema to my character and, more importantly, he has always been there as a friend for me. This has been taken entirely taken out of context. Hope you all have a great day.”
However, this did not settle the rumoured rift between the two as it was noticed by netizens that Rohit unfollowed Katrina on Instagram, and there were also reports that the duo is not on talking terms.
Finally marking an end to all rumours of rift, Katrina shared a warm birthday wish for Rohit Shetty on his special day. Kat shared a picture with him and wrote alongside: “@itsrohitshetty happiest birthday ever. Wishing you the best year and reaching even greater heights...all the love to you.”
