With the book launch of Vishal Bhardwaj’s three films MAQBOOL, OMKARA and HAIDER, which were inspired from Shakespeare’s creations, it was quite expected that the cast of these respective films will be present at the do. Even the invitation, which was circulated around, had the names of Shahid Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor, Konkona Sen Sharma, Irrfan Khan, Kareena Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan, Pankaj Kapur, Tabu and the director Vishal.

Though Kareena and Saif were part of the list and confirmed to grace the occasion, since they starred in OMKARA, it is believed that they skipped the event at last minute. As per the insiders, Saifeena, probably gave a miss to the event in order to avoid Shahid Kapoor. On the other hand, Ajay Devgn, who was also part of OMKARA, couldn’t make it as he is currently shooting for ACTION JACKSON in Austria.
It can be recalled that Shahid was co-anchoring IIFA 2014 along with Farhan Akhtar when Kareena and Saif came on stage to present an award. Both Shahid and Kareena had cordially greeted each other at that time. We wonder what happened this time around.
