Actor Randeep Hooda is not really known for blowing his top in public, especially while addressing the press. But a seemingly innocuous question yesterday from a scribe made the actor see red. Here’s what happened.
Dressed in a tuxedo, a dapper-looking Randeep arrived at the red carpet premiere of Sarbjit with his sister in tow. The man was all smiles while addressing the media until a question about Aishwarya Rai Bachchan overshadowing him in the movie or vice-versa caught him off-guard. Randeep initially ignored the question but when the scribe prodded him for an answer, the actor uncharacteristically shouted, “Shut up.” (PHOTOS: Bachchan family- Aishwarya, Amitabh, Jaya, Abhishek; other Bollywood celebs at Sarbjit’s screening, see pics)
The scribe, offended by Randeep’s remark, told the actor that the question was not out-of-context and it was unbecoming on his part to say, ‘Shut up’. Randeep responded saying, “I ignored your question and if you keep asking me the same question what am I going to do?” When the scribe pointed out that he could have chosen to say ‘No comments’ if he wasn’t comfortable answering the question, a not-so-happy Randeep tried to salvage the situation by blowing an air-kiss, saying, “No comments bro. Is that better?”
