There was speculations regarding the atmospheric pressure on the sets of Vishal Bhardwaj’s “Rangoon”, as the two leading men Shahid Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan sharing a past.
For those who came in late. Shahid was in a relationship with Kareena Kapoor before she fell in love with and married Saif and became a Khan .
Producer Sajid Nadiadwala had warned director Vishal Bhardwaj on the pitfalls of casting Kareena’s past and present together. But Vishal who had worked wonders with both actors in the past was adamant. And Vishal’s faith proved legitimate.
Says a source from location, “There is no rivalry between Saif and Shahid. Initially when they started together they were polite and aloof to one another. As the shooting progressed they discovered many common interests. The two actors began to have earnest conversations between shots. Shahid would stroll into Saif’s van to have lunch with him. Saif would bring a book to the sets that he wanted Shahid to read.”
It feels like the two adults having a mature professional bond. Well done guys!
