It’s wartime in sibling territory. Actor Tusshar Kapoor got into a strong war of words with his filmmaker sister Ekta Kapoor on the sets of Karan Johar’s TV show Koffee with Karan, in the episode that goes on air tonight.
The reason for the apparent spat was Ekta making fun of Tusshar’s co-star and rumoured girlfriend, Radhika Apte. An eyewitness on the sets, who does not wish to be named, says, "Tusshar had been raving about Radhika and the chemistry he shares with her in Balaji’s upcoming film, Shor in the City. Ekta seemed displeased with it and got a chance to take potshots at Apte during the rapid fire round. When Tusshar was asked to rate his top five sexy actresses, he named Kareena, Priyanka and Katrina and then broke off to think. Ekta then interrupted and said, "Radhika Apte". At this, Karan Johar asked, ‘Who is this Radhika’ to which Ekta sarcastically said, ‘Exactly! Who is she?’ Ekta went on to joke that Tusshar had bad taste in women and called Radhika ‘horsey’ beautiful."
The source adds, "Tusshar seemed really upset at this and asked her not to be rude." Things went to the extent of Tusshar adding that he "did not need Ekta’s approval" on whom he should be friends with. When Johar intervened and said he was looking forward to seeing the on screen chemistry between Tusshar and Radhika, Ekta said, "I hope the chemistry stays on the screen, only!"
When contacted, Ekta said, "Karan’s is a fun show and the banter was like what any brother sister have. I have no problem with Radhika."
On the other hand, Tusshar says, "I will not stand anyone taking on my personal life, and that goes for Ekta as well. It was not a fight, but more out of irritation. Radhika and I do get along, but I don’t want to label what we share."
