Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor hosted IIFA in 2015. The Gunday actors were super entertaining and managed to give us a new hosting jodi to look forward to. Sources close to the Padmaavat actor reveal to us that Arjun and Ranveer would have been back as the hosts on IIFA stage this year too, however the plans went off track. That’s right, a source revealed to Zoom TV digital, “Ranveer and Arjun would have come back for IIFA this year in Bangkok. Ranveer suffered an injury and his entire schedule went off the track. He had to start Simmba with Rohit Shetty and that’s why had to let go off IIFA hosting.”
For those of you who do not know, Ranveer Singh even bowed out of the IPL 11 opening ceremony performance due to a shoulder injury. While the actor continued to work on Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy with Alia Bhatt, the actor had barely any time for IIFA amidst preparations for Simmba. The decision was made and Ranveer-Arjun duo has been replaced by Karan Johar and Riteish Deshmukh. Last year too we saw Karan and Saif Ali Khan host the awards night. That’s a night Saif, Karan and Varun Dhawan will never forget thanks to the nepotism controversy that plagued the actors for quite some time after that.
Ranveer has engrossed himself in the prep and filming of Rohit Shetty’s Simmba. The actor will be seen opposite Saif and Amrita Singh’s daughter Sara Ali Khan. The movie is a typical Rohit Shetty film. It was earlier believed that Rohit was planning to do Ram Lakhan remake with Ranveer. However, Rohit in an interview confessed that it’s tough to get two competing stars to work on a project these days.
Apart from work, Ranveer’s Italian wedding with girlfriend Deepika Padukone has been widely discussed. Earlier it was suggested that the actor would get hitched by November. With every passing day more and more details of the wedding is being discussed in Bollywood’s corridors.
While the couple has not made an official statement, we will have to wait and watch if that is one of the reasons why Ranveer did not want to make another commitment, so that he could wind up Rohit’s film and get involved with his wedding preps? Watch this space for more Bollywood news and scoops.
