Be it his comments on people from the industry, their movies, or gossips, he has taken the status of being Bollywood’s Gossip Queen all on his own. The self-proclaimed critic, who does movie reviews almost all the time, is actually entangled in a defamation suit by Salman Khan, however, that has clearly not stopped him from coming up with new things.

Because love him or hate him, KRK is one person who looks like he’s not scared of anyone. And this time he’s targeting a Bollywood star, unlike others. Ranveer Singh.

We all know how immensely talented Ranveer is and how he’s made a name for himself and cemented his status as being a top, top Bollywood superstar, on the basis of his efforts and the roles that he does. However, according to KRK, Ranveer wouldn’t have become that big a star had he not gotten help from his father and Yash Raj Films.

An expert in saying things out of the ordinary, KRK actually says that Ranveer’s dad actually paid Yash Raj Film’s Aditya Chopra a staggering sum of Rs 20 crore in order for him to get launched in the industry. As you all know, Ranveer got his much-anticipated break in the industry with 2010’s Band Baaja Baaraat, in which Ranveer played the role of Bittoo Sharma opposite Anushka Sharma.

Backed by the YRF banner, the movie was a huge success at the box office with Ranveer even winning a Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut, something that obviously helped him get the best kickstart to his Bollywood career. But according to KRK, YRF did not sign Ranveer on their own accord but on the condition that his father paid them Rs 20 crore.

“Bohot saare log ye bhi kehte hai ki Adi ne toh Ranveer Singh ko bhi launch kia tha, wo toh bohot bada star hai. Ji nahi, actually Ranveer Adi ke through launch hua tha. Ranveer ke baap ne 20 crore Rs diye the, tab YRF ne usko launch kia tha. (A lot of people say Adi also launched Ranveer and he’s a huge star today. But not, his father paid a massive sum of 20 crores and only then did Yash Raj Films launch him)” he said.
