Kangna Ranaut not wearing bikini her next flick: She refused to wear a bikini for a scene that has Sanjay Dutt and Ajay Devgn ogling at her. Kangna Ranaut, known for her insatiable ability to sport the quirkiest and the most fashionable outfits in Bollywood, recently shied away from wearing a bikini.
This turned out to be a volte-face because the actress had agreed to wear it initially and was in fact quite excited about it. But last week, while shooting for David Dhawan's Rascals, Kangna suddenly threw a big fit on one of the beaches in Thailand, when Dhawan asked her to wear her bikini.
Even the lead actors Sanjay Dutt and Ajay Devgn could not convince her. The incident was doubly shocking because Kangna had apparently shopped for the two-piece herself.
And given her past inclination to design and make her own clothes, this only reaffirmed the fact that she was confident about wearing the bikini. Says a source, "Kangna had even told her friends that she was very excited to wear a two-piece and was looking forward to the day. Nobody could understand what prompted her to change her mind."
The shooting was stalled for nearly four hours after Kangna threw a fit. The source adds, "Usko bahut samjhaya lekin who nahin mani. One could understand if Dhawan had not informed her about the bikini earlier, she would have been fair then. But that was so not the case.
Why did the otherwise self-assured actress develop cold feet all of a sudden? The buzz is that on learning that the scene had Sanjay and Ajay ogling at her bikini, Kangna decided not to wear it. In the scene, she is expected to come out of the ocean water, much like James Bond's girlfriend, while Sanju and Ajay ogle at her itsy-witsy get-up.
Another source says, "Kangna felt that she had put on a lot of weight during the making of Tanu Weds Manu." Naturally, Kangna did not want the bikini to accentuate the flab instead of the fab body.
Bygones would have been bygones if Kangna hadn't flown back to Mumbai days after this incident happened. Rumour has it that David Dhawan was unhappy when Kangna returned to Mumbai for the promotions of Tanu Weds Manu, bang in the middle of her Rascals shooting schedule. "He had combinations dates for Sanjay, Ajay and her, so he expected her to be there in Thailand with the guys. But she was adamant to go. So Dhawan had to speed up the shoots a bit."
Kangna returned to Thailand on Thursday night. Adds the source, "The on-going schedule will get over by the end of this week. Things have been sorted out now and she may end up wearing the bikini eventually."David Dhawan and Kangna Ranaut remained unavailable for comment. But rumour has it that Kangna's physical trainer, who has put her on a crash diet, is traveling with her now. No more excuses, Kangna.
