- "Got a call saying Kangana's scandal is going on," said Nikkhil Advani
- "Tell Farhan to create a scandal," he was told
- "I don't understand it at all," added the producer
"I got a call from a marketing person saying Kangana's scandal is going on, tell Farhan to create a scandal.' This is an actual conversation! Farhan has to have a scandal otherwise our buzz won't go up. I said 'but what scandal?' and they were like 'any scandal but we need it'," Mr Advani reproduced the conversation, PTI reported.
"I don't understand it at all. How can I approach Farhan and say 'hey let's have a scandal, otherwise no one will watch our film'," added the producer.
The Hrithik Roshan vs Kangana Ranaut public feud has stretched over a year and a half now. To sum it up - Kangana claims a romantic relationship with the actor, which he disputes. This month only, Hrithik formally addressed the snowballed controversy for the first time in a statement. He denied having spent time with the actress privately and said he had been "harassed for 4 years" - Farhan was one of the first celebrities to have written a lengthy note in support of Hrithik.
