Once a mentor, always a mentor: Shraddha Kapoor
Mumbai: Actress Shraddha Kapoor, who had a fallout with Aditya Chopra after she flouted her three-film deal with Yash Raj Films (YRF) for `Aashiqui 2`, says she will always consider the producer as her mentor. She hopes he will call her for a movie someday.
During the shooting of a forthcoming episode of celebrity chat show `Koffee With Karan`, Shraddha was asked by host and filmmaker Karan Johar if she still shares a cordial relationship with Chopra.
“He is always going to be my mentor, always,” said Shraddha.
To that, Karan asked - “So, no matter what water ran through that bridge it’s all okay now?”
Shraddha responded by saying: “Well! I am just waiting for the day when he calls me and tells me, ‘Shraddha I want you in a film’. So, fingers crossed...that should happen soon.”
The actress, daughter of seasoned actor Shakti Kapoor, made her Bollywood debut with 2008 film `Teen Patti`, following which she featured in YRF`s `Luv Ka The End`.
It was the first project of her three-film deal with the film production giant, but instead of opting to do a second YRF movie, she gave a nod to `Aashiqui 2`.
The romantic film gave her visibility like none of her past films, and it was almost like a new lease of life in filmdom for her.
Her desire to work with YRF again was also apparent when during the rapid-fire round on `Koffee With Karan`, the celebrity host asked her to give quick answers to "One thing the following people have which you don`t."
Karan: "Parineeti Chopra"
Shraddha: "Aditya Chopra"
Karan: "Alia Bhatt"
Karan: "Sonakshi Sinha"
Shraddha: "Salman Khan"
The episode featuring Shraddha and her `Aashiqui 2` co-star Aditya Roy Kapur will be aired Sunday.
