Yesterday, we had reported how Sushant Singh Rajput lost his cool at the trailer launch of his upcoming film, Raabta, and ended up having a heated conversation with a senior journalist named Bharathi Pradhan.
While, some among the audience felt that Sushant was right,some felt he was very rude and he shouldn't have talked to a senior journalist like that! Now, in an interview with Spotboye, the senior journalist opened up about the entire fiasco and blamed Kriti Sanon equally for the same!
Bharathi Reveals What Exactly Happened:
"Somebody from Zee News asked for a comment on Pakistan's decision about hanging Kulbhushan Jadhav. At this point, Dinesh Vijan (Raabta's producer) turned around and said rather imperiously, "We won't take any question other than on Raabta."
'They Were Taking Few Questions Other Than Raabta'
She further added, "But later, I observed that they were taking quite a few questions other than on Raabta. Like, they started giving their take on nepotism. And I believe Sushant even spoke on fairness creams."
Bharathi Blames Kriti Sanon
When Bharathi was asked if she believes Kriti started all this, she agreed and responded, "Yes, Kriti told Dinesh Vijan (sitting to her right) something to the effect that they should not talk on the Kulbhushan Jadhav topic. Yes, I think she initiated the whole thing.
'Asking About Kulbhushan Jadhav Was Not A Personal Question'
"I just got up and told Sushant, "Excuse me, but I think you should be taking the question on Kulbhushan Jadhav." If somebody is asking you a personal question, you certainly have the right to duck it- but asking about Kulbhushan Jadhav was definitely not personal," further added Bharathi Pradhan.
'SSR Is A Very Rude Man'
Talking about SSR, Bharathi revealed, "Sushant was not allowing me to complete my question. He just didn't want to take it. Pata nahin kya kya bolne laga. I only knew he is a good actor, but now I also know that he is a very rude man."
SSR Should Learn From Big B & SRK
"We can ask Fawad Khan about Uri attacks. We ask national interest questions to Amitabh Bachchan, Shatrughan Sinha, Shahrukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Hrithik Roshan- and they reply politely. I have been to conferences when Ashok Kumar took stage- but such a thing never happened. But you can't ask Sushant or Kriti anything about national interest! Pray, why?," said Bharathi.
Here's What Irked Bharathi During The Trailer Launch..
"I totally understand that every celebrity need not know everything about every issue.I am not a frivolous or silly person to insist that every celebrity must know everything."
"And then he cross questioned me: If I ask you questions on national interest, would you be able to answer? Heavens!"
"What disturbs me is the fact that Team Raabta didn't want to talk about Kulbhushan at all. Right from Kriti's prompt to Dinesh's orders, it was clear that they were ducking the question," mentioned Bharathi Pradhan.
