Kylie Minogue refuses to meet SRK
Australian pop sensation, Kylie Minogue was in India for just a week but she has ruffled quite a few feathers. The latest is that she refused to meet superstar Shah Rukh Khan.
After the rousing welcome given to Kylie in India, she soaked in the attention, but only for a while. In India, to shoot a song for Shree Ashtavinayak Cine Vision Ltd.’s Blue, in which she has also sung a number, Kylie has disappointed and even enraged many of her Indian fans by outright refusing to meet them. Sensing the hordes of visitors that she would receive and to avoid any disturbance on the sets, Kylie insisted on having a ‘No Entry’ sign put up on the sets of Blue, to discourage people from flocking to the sets.
A source close to the production house said, “Kylie and her manager have ruffled quite a few feathers in Bollywood. After Kylie laid a condition that no visitor would be allowed on the sets while she was shooting, including the families of the co-actors, she meant even the Bollywood fraternity. After reading an interview of Kylie, which mentioned Shah Rukh Khan’s Om Shanti Om as one of her favourite Bollywood films, Shah Rukh’s office got in touch with Kylie, expressing the superstar’s desire to meet her. However, Kylie flatly refused to meet Shah Rukh on the film sets. Kylie’s manager instead conveyed to Shah Rukh that the meeting could only happen at the completion party of the film, which happened last night. This is not the first time that Kylie has snubbed a Bollywood star. Earlier, even Anusha Dandekar, who had gone with Zayed Khan, was denied entry on the sets by Kylie’s security.”
Meanwhile, the much-publicised party to be hosted by Sanjay Dutt did not happen. The source added, “Sanjay Dutt and his business manager had announced that they would be hosting a party for Kylie. But Kylie was never informed about any such party and was not even aware of it. Kylie left the country last night and the party never happened.”
Blue is directed by Anthony D’Souza.
