Mumbai media boycotts Shraddha Kapoor at Ek Villain success event


Getting stardom and digesting it are two different things. While there are many instances in the past when success went straight into the heads of newly born Bollywood stars, leading to their tiff from media, the latest in the line is Shraddha Kapoor who is waving high with the success of her two projects – Aashiqui2 and more recently Ek Villain. The young hot property of Bollywood had to feel the pinch of it when the entire media people who came to attend press conference for the film in Mumbai refused to click her pictures. Despite constant insistance from film’s other cast including Riteish Deshmikh and director Mohit Suri, none of the lensmen bodge, eventually ending the PC without her pictures.

An eyewitness at the event says, “The entire star cast stood outside the venue to pose for a photograph but none of the lensmen clicked a picture.”

Riteish Deshmukh, who is known to be friends with the media, came up to the photographers and asked them why they weren’t taking photographs. He was then told that they all had decided to boycott photographing Shraddha Kapoor, owing to her unhealthy attitude towards them. Riteish then stepped back and went away.”

Later on, photographers were invited inside the hall at Sun N Sand but they refused to budge. Ek Villain’s director, Mohit Suri, as also Shraddha’s co-star, Sidharth Malhotra asked photographers about why they weren’t clicking any photos and the lensmen made it clear that they didn’t wish to photograph Shraddha.

The actress and her manager then tried to reason with them. “She tried to make a conversation but no one spoke to her,” says the eyewitness.

A photographer present at the event says, “Shraddha has been treating us badly all along; she has never posed for photographs with us. Once she made us wait for three hours at a channel event and after that, she promised to pose for our cameras but didn’t keep her word.

Recently at Sidharth Malhotra’s party too, she didn’t bother to pose for us. If she doesn’t care to be photographed, why should we click her at all?” In the end, photographers clicked Mohit, Riteish and Sidharth minus Shraddha.
