Apparently, Bhushan Kumar is upset with Kangna Ranaut for leaving the shoot of his film, I Love NY in a lurch for three days. Rumour has it that the actor flew to London to wrap up Ratan Jain’s Tezz, and that too after Kumar had denied her permission to do so.

However, Ranaut denies it all. “Nobody is upset with me. I’m a responsible person and would never keep a set standing without prior permission,” she says.

The actor admits that Tezz isn’t her film as such. It revolves around actors Ajay Devgn, Anil Kapoor, Zayed Khan and Sameera Reddy. “I’m Ajay’s love interest and though my character is significant to the story, it’s not long in terms of footage,” she says. “To see more of me, you can catch Double Dhamaal, Rascals and I Love NY.”

The latter was earlier titled Happy New Year, but Shah Rukh Khan, who owns the title, refused to give it to the directors of the film —Vinay Sapru and Radhika Rao — who flagged off their career with Salman Khan’s Lucky - No Time For Love (2005).

Kangna, however, feels I Love NY is a “far more appealing title”.

What does love mean to her today? “I’m not dying to be in love, but I’m not denying it either. Love is all around me, I can feel it, without thinking about it 24x7,” she says.
