Actor Shatrughan Sinha, who stirred up a controversy by addressing Rani Mukerji as Rani Chopra at a recent event, says he is unapologetic about the revelation.

“I only stated the truth. If you ask me to speak in public, you better be prepared for frankspeak. I didn’t think it would become such an issue,” a tabloid quoted Sinha as saying.

What happened
Veteran actor Shatrughan Sinha made a major blooper at the unveiling of late filmmaker Yash Chopra's statue on Monday, when he referred to Rani Mukerji as Rani Chopra! It is likely to spark fresh rumours about the actress's current relationship status with Yash Raj Films (YRF) scion Aditya Chopra.

While mentioning the entire Chopra family during a speech, Shatrughan Sinha said: "Yash Chopra, Pamela Chopra, Uday Chopra, Rani... just now my wife said I missed out on Aditya Chopra. Rani Chopra ka naam liye hai toh zahir se baat hai Aditya Chopra ka naam bhi... (When I am taking Rani Chopra's name, then it is obvious that I am taking Aditya Chopra's name as well)."

Rani was left khamosh (silent) -- clearly indicated by her immediate gesture of covering her mouth in apparent shock.

Since years, rumours have been rife that the 34-year-old shares a close bond with Aditya Chopra, and that she was the prime reason behind his divorce in 2009. As per other rumours, the duo has already tied the knot in 2012 in a private ceremony. None of them have either officially confirmed their relationship, or their wedding.

The unveiling of Yash Chopra's statue at the YRF Studios saw many industry members like Poonam Sinha, Poonam Dhillon, Parineeti Chopra, and Prem Chopra in attendance. Many of them took to the stage to share their experiences with the maverick filmmaker.

When photographers requested Pamela Chopra to pose for a picture alongside the statue with Rani in the same frame, she politely gestured and refused.

'Lakshmi' review: It is weighed down by its 'standard-issue' treatment

In Lakshmi, writer-director Nagesh Kukunoor takes the unfortunate true story of an underage girl sold off to the flesh trade, and delivers a deliberately disturbing film that's often hard to watch. It's a tricky slope, films about exploitation and abuse. For as we've learnt from watching Madhur Bhandarkar's movies, there's a thin line between depicting harsh realities on screen, and in that process exploiting the very tragedy and the victim. We first meet Lakshmi (Monali Thakur), a 13-year-old traded by her alcoholic father for Rs 30,000, huddled in the back of a truck as it barrels through an Andhra forest.
