Filmmaker Rohit Shetty recently trended on social media for all the wrong reasons. In his recent interview, he spoke about a particular scene from his upcoming film Sooryavanshi starring Katrina Kaif, Ranveer Singh, Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgn and it did not go down well with netizens. He got termed as a sexist as Rohit in his statement said that no one will look at Katrina with Akshay, Ajay and Ranveer in the frame and a blast happening in the background. However, Katrina took to her Instagram account to clarify and defend Rohit Shetty. But it seems that this controversy had led to a rift between Rohit and Katrina.
As per a report in Mumbai Mirror, Rohit Shetty has now unfollowed Katrina Kaif on Instagram. While the lady still remains to be Rohit's follower, the filmmaker has supposedly clicked the unfollow button. Even after Katrina came to his defense and stated that his statement was taken out of context, the filmmaker did not follow her back, says the report.
It was in his interview with Film Companion that Rohit had said, "If you look closely, she (Katrina Kaif) is blinking during it. After the fourth take she came to me and asked 'can we take one more?' and I said Katrina, I will tell you honestly, no one is going to look at you. She (Katrina) got so wild and I said three guys are walking with blasts happening behind, nobody will notice you. And I kept that shot. In the promo, she blinks while walking. But kaun dekhega." This statement called for a lot of ire on social media as people started trending #ShameOnRohitShetty on Twitter.
Soon after, while giving an explanation, Katrina on her Insta stories wrote, "I share a very warm equation and friendship with Rohit sir and have always enjoyed our discussions on everything from cinema to my character and, more importantly, he has always been there as a friend for me. This has been taken entirely taken out of context. Hope you all have a great day."
