In the same event, Rana also recalled an incident, when a Bollywood heroine had wasted DQ’s time on set. While he didn’t reveal the name of the actress, netizens were quick to speculate and concluded that Rana meant Sonam Kapoor.
Now, the South star has taken to his social media handles and lent a clarification about the same. According to him, his comments were taken out of context.
Check out his post here:
He wrote, ‘I am genuinely troubled by the negativity that has been aimed at Sonam due to my comments, that are totally untrue and were meant entirely in a light-hearted manner. As friends, we often exchange playful banter, and I deeply regret that my words have been misinterpreted. I take this opportunity to express my heartfelt apologies to Sonam and Dulquer, both of whom I hold in great esteem. I hope this clarification puts an end to any speculation and misunderstanding. Thank you for your understanding.’
Speaking about the incident, Rana had said, “While he (Dulquer) was standing in the corner with the spot boy, a big Hindi heroine who was doing that movie was engrossed in a phone conversation about shopping in London with her husband. Her lack of focus affected the shots’ quality, frustrating those on set. Despite the disruptions caused by the situation, Dulquer remained patient and understanding, defusing tension and maintaining a harmonious environment.”
Dulquer and Sonam worked together in ‘The Zoya Factor’ which released in 2019.
