Mumbai: Shahid Kapoor upset Shah Rukh recently at an award function. The young actor who was co-hosting an award function had not rehearsed for the act and ended up disappointing his senior colleague. King Khan, a show stealer that he has always been, yet again grabbed all the lime light by doing most of the talking. While the ‘Kaminey’ star who bears a striking and an uncanny resemblance with the Badshah of Bollywood chose to go mute.
Talking to a tabloid, a source said, “Shahid did not come the previous night for the grand rehearsal and SRK was the only one to do it. Even on Thursday, the day of the show, Shahid only arrived a couple of hours before the show was to start.”
Apparently, Shahid’s laid back attitude did not go too well with SRK who thought he was being over confident.
“This left the organisers with very little time. SRK, who was present throughout all the rehearsals, was extremely upset with Shahid’s behaviour and thought that he was being overconfident”, the source added.
And King Khan had little options left but to take over the show on his experienced shoulders.
“That’s why SRK took over the show and everyone present at the awards night was surprised to see Shahid hardly speaking. Shahid inaugurated the show and was followed by Anushka and Ranveer. Post that SRK and Shahid were on the stage for about an hour. In that entire hour, SRK must have done the talking for about 45 minutes while leaving the rest for Shahid. It was very evident that something had gone wrong between the two.”
Defending Shahid’s poor performance as a co-host at the event, a source close to the actor revealed, “Shahid wanted to come for the grand rehearsals but he missed his flight from Chandigarh because of bad weather. So, he drove in the fog to Delhi, despite the unit members telling him not to, before taking a flight from there.”
However, the talented young heartthrob turned up for the rehearsals only to learn that SRK had left for the day.
“When Shahid reached for the rehearsals the night before, SRK had already left, as it was very late. SRK came earlier the next day in order to rehearse with Shahid but on that day Shahid had to work on his individual act, so he hardly had any time for his combined act with SRK. However, SRK called him to his van and was very sweet to him. He told Shahid to work on his individual act and that he will take care of their combined act, which is what happened.”
