Mumbai: It could have created a lot of stir. But press was left high and dry when Priyanka Chopra and Vidya Balan decided to give ex Shahid Kapoor’s film ‘Mausam’s’ premiere a miss.
While many big names in the industry decided to turn up to support Shahid and Sonam, Vidya and Priyanka were conspicuous by their absence.
Speaking to a daily, a source informed, “Vidya Balan was shooting for ‘Dirty Picture’ at a studio in Goregaon on Thursday evening. Though her co-star Tusshar Kapoor did take a break for a couple of hours to attend the birthday party of his ‘Hum Tum Shabana’ producer Sunil Chainani, Vidya decided not to follow his example. She continued shooting for the film. On the other hand, Priyanka Chopra chose to perform with SRK at an awards function in Delhi and skip Shahid`s movie premiere."
Both the ladies were invited specially by Shahid for the premiere.
Not only did Shahid’s exes give the star studded event a miss, even new found buddies, Ranbir Kapoor and Imran Khan were not present.
“It was shocking to see that neither Ranbir nor Imran turned up for the ‘Mausam’ premiere. Everybody was talking about their absence in hushed whispers at the event,” informed a source. Though, Imran`s wife Avantikaa did make an appearance with director Ayaan Mukerji.
Ranbir absence could be because of Sonam Kapoor , a friend of the actor defended him saying, “Shahid knew Ranbir wouldn`t make it for the premiere. Ranbir was busy shooting in Chandivli.”
Inspire of the absence of four big stars, the premiere of ‘Mausam’ was indeed a star studded event. Genelia D`Souza, Bipasha Basu, Sonakshi Sinha, Amisha Patel, Kangna Ranaut, Tabu, Rani Mukerji, Aayesha Takia and even Amrita Rao (who happens to be Shahid`s ex-love as well) added glamour at the red carpet.
