There were reports that the Masaan actor was not happy that her role was sizeably cut short in the biopic, which also stars Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Randeep Hooda.
When asked if Richa is miffed, Jackky, who has produced the film, said, “As far as I know, Richa is a very dear friend, she has not mentioned anything to me. She is a very honest girl, if that’s the case she always mentions. If there is something in her mind, then that I don’t know.”
The actor was speaking at the success party of Sarbjit here last evening. Citing an example from his film F A L T U, the actor said that one of his songs in the movie was edited as the producer and director took a creative call in the interest of the project. “For me, once you do a job as an actor then it’s the director, producer and editor’s job to decide what is best for the film. You can’t be biased towards any actor. You have to do the best for the film and the audience,” he said.
The actor-turned-producer, when asked about reports that he was keen to work with former Swedish House Mafia member Steve Angello, said he wished to collaborate and explore an opportunity to integrate the EDM artiste’s music in his next venture.
“We are trying to do something. He is performing here. I am going to meet him and I am really excited. We have been having Twitter conversations. I believe whether my films work or not, the music should work. Hopefully we should do something together,” the Youngistaan actor said. Steve Angello is going to perform in Mumbai today.
