Karan Johar Calling Ranveer Singh Ugly before the Release of Band Baaja Baraat Makes for One Wacky Story in Bollywood

Team Latestly
Did you know Karan Johar was against Aditya Chopra launching Ranveer Singh as the lead actor of Band Baaja Baraat? He felt the Padmaavat actor was very 'ugly' and even disapproved Anushka Sharma for the same.

Karan Johar is unapologetic and unabashed about his opinions and his subtle digs are something to look forward to. He recently questioned Kriti Sanon about having zero chemistry with Sushant Singh Rajput in Raabta and even teased Ishaan Khatter for hovering around Janhvi Kapoor. So when he once tagged Ranveer Singh as ugly, it didn't really surprise us. No, we aren't kidding when we say K Jo's first impression about Singh was really bad and he even thought of him as a random AD (Assistant Director) working on Yash Raj Films' next project. Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh to Give their First Joint Interview for the New Season of Rendezvous With Simi Garewal.

During an episode of Koffee with Karan, the host revealed the story to his guests, Ranveer Singh and Anushka Sharma and even apologised for calling them 'ugly'. Karan revealed how he was sitting in YRF's canteen with Aditya Chopra and Yash Chopra and he saw the Lootera actor playing table tennis in his ganji and shorts. He later asked Aditya if the same guy is an AD and got a shock of his life later. It was only later when Chopra introduced him as the lead actor of Band Baaja Baraat, that he suggested him to start hunting for a better face. Karan Johar and Varun Dhawan are in Awe of John Abraham's Batla House Trailer - Read Tweets.

Karan was clearly against Ranveer being the face of Band Baaja Baraat and he even disapproved Anushka Sharma for the same. Of course, today they're the reigning stars of Bollywood and something that a visionary like Mr Johar failed to foresee.
