Imran denies saying he has an edge over Ranbir

Ranbir Kapoor and Imran Khan are perhaps the best in the younger lot in Bollywood currently, and undoubtedly they are fierce rivals.

Since both of them started their career around the same time there are constant comparisons drawn between the two on the films they choose and, of course, their performances.

And recently, around the time of Kareena-Imran-starrer Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu promotions, when Imran was quoted saying that he has an edge over Ranbir because he can be romantically paired with Kareena whereas Ranbir can’t, the controversial statement led to many tongues wagging. But, when Imran was asked upfront about it, Imran denied making the statement.

That is not my quote. Some one said that I can work with Kareena and Ranbir can’t, and I merely said, “Yes, that is true.

I don’t make such antagonistic and aggressive statements. That is the fabrication of some eager journalist.

the actor further said laughing. Coming to her co-star’s defence, Kareena says, “Imran is too sweet a guy to make such statements. And I don’t think there is an edge because everyone knows that Ranbir and I am brother and sister (laughs). So it is no big deal.”

Quoted or misquoted, we don’t know, but many movie-buffs definitely feel sad about the fact that huge talents and beautiful actors like Kareena and Ranbir who are known for their cinematic brilliance cannot be romantically paired in a film. What a pity.
