Manoj Kumar: Is still upset with Shah Rukh Khan But Fond of Ranveer Singh!


In 2007 Shah Rukh Khan while promoting his movie Om Shanti Om was seen covering his face with his palm — an inimitable trademark associated instantly with veteran actor Manoj Kumar. But its didn’t go down well with the iconic star and felt insulted. Further requested Co producer, Shah Rukh Khan, removing the insulting scenes and giving an apology had failed to keep up his promise. He was quoted saying that, “The film was released in Japan without deleting those scenes. I had forgiven them twice but not this time. They have disrespected me. They also face contempt of court as in 2008 the court had asked them to forever and from all prints and broadcast material, delete those scenes.

In recent times we witnessed Ranveer Singh mimicking the iconic pose of Manoj Kumar with his hand on his face. During the recent interaction with the media, Manoj Kumar was asked why he chose to react positively to Ranveer Singh’s this photoshoot and was quoted saying that, “I have seen the snapshot. He has done a good job of imitating me. I laughed a lot when I saw the picture. Ranveer is on the right track. What Shah Rukh did was hitting below the belt, what Ranveer did was in good taste.”

Ranveer Singh took to social media and wrote, ‘Workin’ the Manoj Kumar.’  We also get to know that legendary actor Manoj Kumar is a huge fan of Ranveer Singh. He was quoted saying that, “Ranveer is a fine artist. My good wishes are with him. I have seen his film, Band Baaja Baaraat. He even added that “he has already worked with Ranveer’s grandmother Chand Burke in the film ‘Pehchan.”
