Things seem to be going pretty bad between ‘Dirty Politics’ co-stars. Apparently, veteran actor Om Puri got offended by Mallika Sherawat’s comment. It all started at Kapil Sharma’s Comedy Nights With Kapil show, where Mallika was a guest.
During the giggles and trollings, the actress said that her co-star Om Puri had to dye his hair before the love-making scene with her in K.C. Bokadia’s film ‘Dirty Politics’. Well, Mallika is pretty well known for running around and saying the first thing that comes in her mind, of course, never meaning to hurt anybody but this comment did it and became the cause of the tiff between the two actors.
As reported by a source from the film’s crew, “Om ji was very upset with Mallika’s remark. He immediately confronted her. She apologised. But the damage was done. After that there was a coldness between them. They may not promote the film together.”
When Om Puri was asked about the incident, he admittedly said, “Yes, I did confront Mallika when I heard what she had said somewhere about me. I didn’t see the show. But people told me about it. She said it was a mistake. But what kind of a mistake is this? You put up your co-star, who is far more experienced than you, for ridicule on national television. Then you say it was a mistake?”
Ouch! Things seem to be pretty serious. Directed by K.C. Bokadia, ‘Dirty Politics’ also stars Anupam Kher, Jackie Shroff, Naseeruddin Shah, Ashutosh Rana along with Mallika Sherawat and Om Puri. The film is set to hit the theatres on February 13, 2015.
