Barely had Manoj Kumar been pacified for wrongs, imagined or otherwise, done to him when another not-so-senior citizen from show-world threatened to get seriously angry with one of his colleagues.
A seemingly off-hand quote attributed in a daily to Kunal Kapoor had the otherwise-affable Sanjay Suri fuming about “the juvenile behaviour of the new stars of today." The remark that incensed Suri? "At this rate (playing so many cameos) I'll become the next Sanjay Suri of the industry."
The non-controversial Suri never known to bad-mouth anyone, was taken aback by this frontal attack, and that too by an actor junior to him. Kunal, on his part, was horrified. Apparently, the words had been put into his mouth.
The embarrassed Kapoor called up the newspaper and asked for a retraction. Says Kunal, "It's been sorted out. It was never a big issue anyway."
Not for you, Kunal. But Sanjay Suri was definitely not amused.
