Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone’s Mumbai reception: Who were not invited and why

Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone who tied the knot on November 14 this year, held a grand bash for their friends from Bollywood on December 1.

To be sure, most of the bigwigs from Bollywood were present, including SRK, Anushka, Katrina, Varun Dhawan, Amitabh Bachchan and family, Sidharth Malhotra, Jacqueline, Rekha, Karisma, Kareena, Saif, Ayushmann Khurrana and Tahira Kashyap atc.

However, there were some who were conspicuous by their nonattendance.

Sushant Singh Rajput and Kangana Ranaut have had their own rifts with the starry couple.

There were rumours that Sushant was offered ‘Befikre’ initially, but the film later went to Ranveer. This was said to be his main reason for parting ways with YRF (Yash Raj Films).

Later Sushant cleared saying. He had never been offered the film, and that even if he had, he had no intention of doing the film.

Sushant had some harsh words to spew about ‘Befikre’ as well. “If the film was representing the new-age youth of India and romance as what it was claiming, it would have been great irrespective of the box-office numbers. But unfortunately, it didn't do that and hence I would not be interested.”

Before ‘Befikre’, there were rumours that Sushant had been offered ‘Goliyon Ke Rasleela Ram Leela’, but that had gone to Ranveer as well and since then Sushant is said to have had shared cold vibes with Ranveer too.

On the other hand, Kangana and Deepika are not exactly the best of friends. It started in early 2014, when Deepika won the Best Actress for ‘Happy New Year’, but dedicated it to Kangana for ‘Queen’. Kangana had responded that while she appreciated the gesture, she wished Deepika had told her in person. Kangana was even more miffed that Deepika had never called her up to praise her performance.

After a series of misunderstandings, the two had patched up. Kangana attended Deepika’s ‘Piku’ screening. However, Deepika was not able to attend Kangana’s ‘Tanu Weds Manu Returns’ screening, which upset the latter.

Later in 2017, Kangana stood up for Deepika, when she was attacked for her choice of outfits at an award show.

Yet, things still seem to be shaky between the two.
