Ranbir Kapoor’s absence from the promotional stint of Tamasha on Salman Khan’s Bigg Boss was much speculated and the actor now says he had his “personal reasons” to miss the show.
Ranbir, 33, is rumoured to be dating Salman’s ex-girlfriend Katrina Kaif.
While the Bajrangi Bhaijaan star is still friends with Katrina, he apparently does not share a good equation with Ranbir.
Deepika, 29, was seen promoting Tamasha on the reality show and having a good time with the superstar host.
When asked about the reason for his absence, Ranbir said, “Deepika and the marketing team thought Bigg Boss is a big platform to promote the film. But I didn’t go for my own personal reasons.”
Salman, 49, was seen in a supporting role in Ranbir’s Bollywood debut Sawaariya and made a cameo appearance in the latter’s Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani, which also starred Katrina.
Ranbir, Deepika and Imtiaz Ali were in the capital to promote Tamasha.
This is the second time Ranbir is collaborating with the director after their 2011 hit Rockstar, while it is Deepika’s third film with Imtiaz after Love Aaj Kal and Cocktail.
