Farhan Akhtar expressed his disappointment about the rumor of his link-up with Shraddha Kapoor. In an Interview with Mid-day, he said:
“How can Ritesh Sidhwani and I fight over Shraddha? The idea of casting her came from him. He’d seen ‘Aashiqui 2’ Ek Villain, and loved her voice. He was adamant that she plays the role. Be it my so-called split with Ritesh or my various liaisons with women, I let it pass. Did you know, at one point, I was with three women at the same time? I was also supposedly moving in with Kalki Koechlin. She sent a hilarious message that read, ‘Dude, things are moving very fast between us. Don’t you think we should meet once before we move in?’. It was hysterical.
I responded to her saying, ‘If not anything else, let’s meet and discuss the colour of the walls, at least’. I have tried hard to not let such things affect me when I am promoting the film with Shraddha. When people have to write stuff, they do. Who says what to whom goes around as Chinese whispers.”
Arousal of such rumors before the release of Rock On 2 may effect the movie, either positively or negatively. Although, Farhan do not want to mess-up anything in personal or professional way.
