Bipasha Basu to not promote ‘Humshakals’: 3 eminent actors who refused to promote their films

A lot has been said about Bollywood actor Bipasha Basu giving the promotions of her upcoming movie ‘Humshakals‘ a total miss. The 35-year old actor has finally broke her silence and made known the reason for not promoting Sajid Khan directed film. About the controversy related to it, she says that she was disturbed after seeing the “end result of the film”.

The doe- eyed beauty of Bollywood says since she was not satisfied with the way the entire film turned out, she decided it was best to stay away from the promotions as well. It is believed that the actress is miffed with the director Sajid Khan for his biased treatment towards newbies Tamannah Bhatia and Esha Gupta.

However, this is not the first time when a controversy like this has happened. Some of the eminent Bollywood actors too skipped the promotions of their movies too!

We list three actors who did not promote the movie they starred in:

1. Shahid and Kareena: 

When Shahid and Kareena‘s movie Milenge Milenge released in 2010, the lovebirds had already turned into ex- lovers. The duo broke- up and hence refused to promote the movie together. The movie bombed at the box office.

2. Akshay Kumar:

Bolywood star Akshay Kumar refused to promote his film ‘Joker’ because of his differences with the director of the film, Shirish Kunder. This also ended his friendship with Kunder’s wife Farah Khan with whom Kumar had done Tees Maar Khan. The movie bombed at the box office.

3. Kangana Ranaut:

The ‘Queen’ of B- town missed the promotions of her movie ‘Shootout at Wadala’. Apparently, Kangana was not very happy with the fact that Priyanka Chopra‘s item number ‘Babli Badmash’ from the movie was promoted in a big way.
