Original Malayalam film ‘King Of Kotha’ releasing in several languages Telugu Tamil, Kannada and Hindi starring Dulquer Salmaan in the lead. In the recent pre-release event that happened in Telugu on 14 August in Hyderabad, the actors Nani and Rana Daggubati graced with their presence.
During the speech time, Rana went on appreciating how patient and polite as a person Dulquer is. Recalling one incident in dealing with an unnamed heroine who was ‘wasting time’ while shooting for a Hindi film with Salmaan.
Daggubati said in Telugu that translates, “Dulquer was my junior at acting school. We became friends there. He is a very polite person. He’s doing a Hindi movie and the producers are my friends. The shoot was happening near my house. I went there to meet Dulquer. While he 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.”
In no time this video went viral all over social media and fans started guessing it was about Sonam Kapoor with whom the Malayalam actor shot a Bollywood film ‘The Zoya Factor’.
Amidst this video surfacing the internet, we witness Sonam Kapoor uploading a cryptic post on her Instagram story with a quote, “Small minds discuss people; average minds discuss events; great minds discuss ideas.” Uploading this quote post she wrote, “Just a little something I’d like some people to know… especially when discussing things about people that are made up.”
Rana Daggubati Apologizes Sonam Kapoor
Early today, the Baahubali star went ahead to apologize to the actress that he meant in a light-hearted way.
Taking to the X (formerly Twitter) 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.”
