Harman Baweja's debut film Love Story 2050 has yet to hit the marquee. But the newbie has already begun getting negative vibes from industry folk including power couple AbhiAsh, no less! This was evident at the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) awards in Bangkok.
Says a source, "Harman and ladylove Priyanka Chopra signing a prestigious film like Ashutosh Gowariker's What's Your Raashee? hasn't gone down well with several industry folk. They are trying to find out how Harman clinched the deal. They want to know if his dad Harry Baweja had anything to do with it."
Adds the source, "It is learnt that even Abhishek is upset. After Jodhaa Akbar, Ash was hoping to sign Ashutosh's next. On the Miami sets of Karan Johar's Dostana, Abhishek, Ash and Priyanka were together but there was no bonding between the Bachchan couple and Priyanka, who incidentally, was given the name Piggy Chops by Abhishek!"
Continues the insider, "Though several stars including Miss Thailand Khun Farung Yuthithum and others walked the ramp at the IIFA 2008 fashion extravaganza on Friday, the night ended on a sour note due to the childish behaviour of the Bachchans."
Priyanka and Harman were show stoppers for Rohit Bal and walked in their Love Story 2050 costumes. "The moment Harman and Priyanka walked on stage Abhishek whispered something to Ash which triggered off a bout of giggles from her.
Ash and Abhi kept laughing, giggling whispering and pointing to the Love Story 2050 couple. The senior Bachchans were seated ahead. Hearing their giggles, Jaya had to turn around and ask what was so funny. Both Jaya and Amitabh realised that Priyanka was feeling uncomfortable," says the insider. A source close to Harman says, "Both Priyanka and Harman couldn't figure out what was so funny. They are very upset about Abhishek and Aishwarya laughing at them."
