Barely a few films old, Bollywood stars seem to have mastered the art of starry tantrums. They are one or two films old, but the starry tantrums have already sent industry insiders in a tizzy. It's not just the younger lot, even the A-list actresses are known to throw around some starry tantrums.
It seems young actress Shraddha Kapoor has become the latest tantrum queen of Bollywood. It was even reported that the actress during the shooting of Haider in Kashmir demanded a five-star treatment from the unit. After knowing that she was the only member of the cast who had not been put up in a suite, the actress displayed bad temper. Other actors of the film, like Shahid Kapoor, Tabu, Irrfan Khan and Kay Kay Menon were given a suite while there was none available for her. Shraddha too demanded a suite in the five-star hotel though there was no vacant room.
The daughter of Shakti Kapoor and Shivangi Kolhapure was upset with the biased treatment. "The hotel was full at the time. And the production-in-charge tried to explain this to Shraddha but she wasn't appeased," informed unit man. Well she is not the only one, adult star turned Bollywood actress Sunny Leone too has thrown around some tantrums during shooting.
When the veterans like Aishwarya Rai and Kareena Kapoor have so many demands, it's obvious the younger lot will follow in their footsteps. Celebrity tantrums in tinseltown are not a new thing, here's a look at few other hot Bollywood actresses and their reported tantrums.
During the shooting of Vipul Shah's Action Replay Aishwarya Rai refused to get her make up done with the international make up artistes who were hired for the film. The reason being she couldn't be comfortable with any other make up man except Ojas Rajani, her personal favorite.
The success of 'Aashiqui 2' has catapulted Shraddha Kapoor to fame and now the actress expects to be treated like a star. During shooting of 'Haider' in Kashmir, she discovered that she was the only member of the cast who had not been put up in a suite. She too demanded a suite in the hotel. The team had to then shift her to another five-star hotel, where she was given a suite. But when she turned up for the preparatory workshop next day, the actress was still sulking over the 'unfair' treatment.
One actor who's constantly reported to throw tantrums is the Mallika Sherawat. She has even earned the reputation of a tantrum queen. The actress also reportedly insists that each shot be canned until she thinks it's perfect. Her nakhras have also got her the headlines.
Bipasha Basu, who owes her success in Bollywood to Bhatts, is apparently throwing starry tantrums in their face. Buzz is after refusing the female lead in Murder 2, Bips has also lost the item number from the film. Reportedly, the actress was supposed to do an item number for Murder 2, but she wanted only a particular choreographer to do it. This unreasonable demand enraged Mukesh Bhatt as the choreographer was asking a high price.
The former adult star Sunny Leone displayed some of it recently during a shoot when she laid down the condition that she did not want TV channels covering the shoot. The photoshoot organisers were in a spot as normally there are tie-ups between them and channels.
Parineeti Chopra 25, is already in ‘industry bad books' for turning up late for brand endorsement shoots (a campaign where she has replaced actor Juhi Chawla), and also for turning up late for media interactions.
During a promotional event Katrina Kaif was apparently so exhausted that she fell into deep slumber without putting on her seat belt. And when the airhostess tapped her to wake her up she completely lost it. "How dare you touch me? Don't you know who I am?", is what she allegedly said to the airhostess.
Kangana Ranaut travels with her assistant everywhere. But while she travels first class, her assistant travels economy class. That's not the problem. The problem arises when the airhostess would ask Kangana about what she would like to eat or drink and Kangana would simply ask her to direct all queries to her assistant sitting in the economy class. The stewardess would then have to go back and forth searching for Kangana's assistant just to satisfy Kangana's food demands!
Anushka Sharma has gone a step ahead to bag the title 'tantrum queen'. When a cinematographer is setting up the light, he makes the actors to stand there so that the light falls properly on their face and make them look optimally beautiful. But Miss Sharma feels she is a diva. The birdy from the crew says, "On the sets of Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl, she sends one of her assistants of the same height to stand in for her to get the lighting right, as it's a waste of time for her. She doesn't realise that it falls differently on every face.
Kareena Kapoor Khan takes the cake when it comes to throwing tantrums. Bebo put several conditions in front of Madhur Bhandarkar before she agreed to do his film Heroine that she only wanted to work with A- listers. She flatly refused to do any love-making scenes. The funny part is even after the conditions were accepted, Kareena refused the movie anyway. Why? Because she didn't like the script and asked Madhur to re-write it, again!
Priyanka Chopra is apparently throwing tantrums on the sets of her upcoming movie - biopic on Mary Kom. She is interfering in the film-making process and director Omung Kumar is upset with her interference.
