The actress, who publicly declared her crush on the actor, stole the show from his girlfriend Anushka at a recent award function
While Sonakshi Sinha will take away some great memories of her time in Toronto, attending an award function, Anushka Sharma has not been so fortunate. It seems that the weekend started out on a bad note for Anushka and just kept getting worse.
It all began, on June 22, when the actress had to fly solo, rather than in the company of her beau Ranveer Singh, who was only able to fly out the next day.
However, her only consolation was performing with Ranveer at the said awards function. But that too was a short-lived happiness. Despite the couple rehearsing for their performance, Anushka was told at the last moment by organisers that Sonakshi was a better fit.
Previously, Anushka had gyrated to peppy numbers in Rab Ne Bana De Jodi and Band Baaja Baaraat, but she did not seem to impress organisers with her stage performance. A source revealed, “At the last moment Anushka was replaced by Sonakshi to dance with Ranveer. The organisers said that Anushka was not well prepared, and thus they couldn’t take any chances.”
Sonakshi seems to have lucked out from this whole incident the most. Previously, the actress confessed her crush on Ranveer on a TV show. She couldn’t stop gushing about the newbie and said she would have loved to date him, if he was single.
However, when the topic was brought up to Anushka, on the same show, she refrained from taking an insecure girlfriend approach and instead said, “He is all yours. Please go ahead.”
But, the latest event has not sat well with Anushka, who was spotted with a sullen face.To make matters worse, while receiving an award Lisa Ray mispronounced her name as ‘Anushka Shankar’. Even though KJo was quick to correct that, Anushka’s expression said it all.
The actress, however, graciously accepted her award and thanked Karan for correcting the mistake. Fortunately, things seemed to have lightened up for Anushka, when Ranveer, upon accepting his award, said, “Thanks Anushka for making me hot!”
