When Shahid upset SRK
Sharing the stage with Shah Rukh Khan can be unnerving for any one but when you manage to miff Khan at the same time, he knows how to shut you up. Here's what happened to Shahid Kapoor on one such fateful night.Updated: Jan 08, 2011 19:31 IST
At a recent award function, Khan managed to hog all the limelight while co-host Shahid Kapoor played a mere spectator. Why did SRK shut Shahid up? Because Shahid did not turn up for the rehearsals for the award ceremony which irritated SRK to no ends, Mumbai Mirror reported.
A source told the tabloid, "Shahid did not come the previous night for the grand rehearsal and SRK was the only one to do it. Even on Thursday, the day of the show, Shahid arrived a couple of hours before the show was to start."
This left SRK, who was present for all the rehearsals, very upset with Shahid's behaviour. It is believed that SRK thought that Shahid was being pompous and over confident.
So, on the day of the ceremony, Shahid barely spoke few syllables while SRK was at his wittiest best and spoke non-stop for more than 45 mins in an hour segment.
It is believed that Shahid couldn't make it for the grand rehearsals because he missed his flight from Chandigarh. "When Shahid reached for the rehearsals the night before, SRK had already left, as it was very late. SRK came earlier the next day in order to rehearse with Shahid but on that day Shahid had to work on his individual act, so he hardly had any time for his combined act with SRK."
However, buzz is that SRK called Shahid to his van and asked him to work on his individual act and assured him that he will take care of the combined act.
Now, that's what you call professionalism!
