The war of words between Annu Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra is heating up. It all started when Kapoor had speculated in an interview that Chopra had refused to do a kissing scene with him in ‘7 Khoon Maaf’ (2011). Since then, words have been said by the two actors by various means. The latest to speak out is Kapoor himself.
After reports that Chopra was absent from the scene rather than refusing to do it, Kapoor hit back with comments indicating that the actress was unprofessional and wasn’t serious about her role in the film. ZEE News reports that when speaking about Chopra the senior actor stated, ““I’m a character artist, just an actor – I’m not those stars. But Priyanka is a heroine. Ask her to shed her stardom off and face me in the territory of art – we’ll talk then”.
“Priyanka should be happy that a senior actor has spoken about her. I’ve spent more years struggling in this industry than is her age. She should be grateful that an artist and patriot has spoken about her – she should touch my feet,” he added.
The battle of words has surprised many, as Kapoor and Chopra had a good working relationship because Kapoor is a very close friend of Chopra’s father. Despite this, it looks like that friendship is deteriorating and it’s going to be a while before it will rise again.
