They say success and stardom changes a person. Especially, when it's an industry like Bollywood, it happens sooner than ever. So we hear that this young Gen-Y actor, who's a star now, given his string of successes that followed, is a changed man. Apparently, he has been calling the shots on who should be cast opposite him in films. 

The actor, in point, has signed up an unconventional love-story where he has to romance a person of the same sex. While the film is the second part in the franchise, when it was being planned, the filmmaker producing the film, wanted to cast another credible actor from the younger brigade opposite him. Till a year ago, both the actors were considered in the same league, but our hero delivered back to back hits and became a sensation. But the other actor is always talked about for his talent, and has also delivered a 100 crore film last to last year. 

The problem was that the quirky romcom needed two powerful actors and our star wasn't comfortable sharing screen space with the hero. He shared his inhibitions, and his insecurity stemmed from the result of an earlier film that both of them had starred in, where the actor walked away with all the praises, despite our star getting the girl in the end. Frantic calls were made to the producer, who realised that Actor A was a more top-billed hero with a major pull at the box office and hence had to reluctantly give into his demands. In Actor B's place, he then got a newcomer, who's also a popular face in the entertainment field because of other reasons, on board to play the star's romantic lead. All of this seems funny because a few years ago when our star wasn't a star yet and a critically acclaimed filmmaker wanted him to play the lead opposite a superstar heroine, the actress had refused to work with him and they later got a Punjabi superstar make his big Bollywood debut with the same project. Guess our star boy has forgotten his good ol' days!

I prefer Jeetu sir over Raj Kumar any time any day

Problem with Ayushmann and Rajkummar is every single movie they seem to jump out and be like "LOOK, we're QUIRKY! We're doing something Indians don't talk about!" Honestly... it's getting kind of annoying to me.

It’s Ayushman and Rajkumar Rao. AK becoming too big for his shoes

Ayushman and Raj kumar Rao-- Shubh mangal savdhan

Aayushman is the big star and shubh mangal savadhan franchise. Raj kumar Rao is the other actor who Ayushmann doesn’t want.

Ayushmann and Rajkummar Rao. Raj got the most acclaim for Bareilly and Kareena rejected Ayushmann for Udta Punjab and they got Diljeet Dosanj although I won't call Kareena a superstar. She hasn't been able to deliver a solo 100 crore hit without the support of a Khan or other superstar in her 20 year career
