The Pulkit Samrat–Yami Gautam alleged affair has been grabbing headlines for a few weeks now. Even though the couple has neither denied nor accepted their relationship in public, they’ve managed to dodge the question rather well. But looks like the directer of their upcoming movie Sanam Re didn’t get the memo about being discreet.
If I could take a risk with five newcomers in Yaariyan and make it a hit then why would I do this for publicity with my second movie? That’s not my filmmaking philosophy. In fact a television channel had approached us with the idea of playing Yami and Pulkit’s real life affair all day in their channel because it will give required footage to the movie. When my department suggested that to me, I completely put my foot down. That’s because I don’t agree with it. It’s not a publicity stunt. The media is writing about it because the power of pen is not in our hands. The media is writing what they want to – we have not fed them these stories.
Real life affair, then? Nice!
