With ex flames Kareena Kapoor Khan and Shahid Kapoor coming together for UDTA PUNJAB, it was obvious media wouldn't spare the duo and hurl questions about their past and present equation. Even at the trailer launch of UDTA PUNJAB, all eyes were set on Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor Khan and everyone expected some action to happen as they were sharing the platform after a long time. But both Shahid and Kareena made sure the event goes with a smooth flow and its more about UDTA PUNJAB than they coming in focus. In fact, the team of UDTA PUNJAB came prepared and stood as professionals.
Kareena and Shahid maintained a distance and they didn't consciously stand besides each other. Further, they made sure they don't get clicked together by the paparazzi, so they avoided for any photo ops.
However, this act of Shahid and Kareena was written and talked about a lot by the fourth estate, which is bound to create headlines. Recently, when this point was brought forth, Shahid Kapoor without mincing his words blatantly, said, “If I and Kareena click pictures together, then people will just write about it and keep talking about it only.”
“We came there as a team to promote UDTA PUNJAB and I wanted to have a correct representation at the launch event instead of shifting focus to elsewhere. And that's the reason, we made sure that we stand in a way that press does not click photographs that they wish to click which are controversial and put something wrong out there. We wanted a correct representation of the film,” the actor added.
While Shahid attempts to come clean on the controversy by telling it all, but we wonder is this the only and REAL reason to avoid getting clicked together? Because, if Shahid and Kareena didn't want to grab media's attention, then they wouldn't have done this movie together. And even if they did the movie, they must be pretty aware that once you are part of a team, you have to work together. They always knew doing a film together will not be without its share of promotions. Today, besides doing a film together, the co-stars have to go full-throttle for movie promotions and have to be together throughout the journey till the film sees its light of the day.
Considering all these factors, when Shahid maintains that they intentionally avoided being clicked together, looks pretty absurd. If he is so considerate about not being wrongly targeted by the news-hungry media, then he would have simply stood beside Kareena, leaving hardly any scope for the raising eyebrows.
We deem, Shahid and Kareena still aren't in a mood to kiss and tell. The duo doesn't want to be cordial as of now and therefore avoid each other's sight. And what makes us say so? Well their body language and evading eye-contact were evident enough that Shahid and Kareena weren't willing to be in the same frame at the event (and who knows they may have signed the film on the terms that they will not share the screen in UDTA PUNJAB as well.)
