Sonam Kapoor might be about as many films old as Neil Nitin Mukesh, but she has some superstar airs.
Also, it is reported that Mukesh is not the most sought after person on the sets of Abbas-Mustan's Players.
Apparently, he gets to do some daring stunts and has landed the best lines as the villain of the film. This has not gone down too well with the rest of the cast, who only discovered this after filming commenced.
Add to that Mukesh's 'helpful' attitude where he likes to provide inputs on scenes and song sequences and he's (obviously) not very popular with his co-stars.
While, most others suffer him with a smile, Kapoor was not one to be talked down to.
When Mukesh stepped in with some advice on dance steps for a song sequence featuring Kapoor, she reportedly told him to keep his advice to himself, reports Mid-day.
"Neil meant no harm. He likes to make his presence felt on the sets. But when he advised Sonam on how to do her steps, she told him to keep his advice to himself," a source told the tabloid.
Following this rebuff, a red-faced Mukesh withdrew and kept mum for the rest of the shoot.
"He did try to suggest dance steps to Sonam, and she didn't like it," another source confirmed, "She made it clear to Neil that she didn't appreciate his unsolicited assistance. Poor Neil. He just likes to be more than just an actor while shooting."
But the Johny Gaddar actor laughs off the incident saying, "Sonam is a darling. I don't need to show dance moves to a person who is a genius at it. In fact, I learnt a few extra dance steps from her."
Saving face, are we?
