Sushmita Sen is conspicuous by her absence from the promotions of No Problem.
The actress is missing from the photo and posters of the movie as well. Some posters have her snapshots pasted on it as if as an afterthought.
The comic caper, which stars Anil Kapoor (who is also the producer), Sanjay Dutt, Akshaye Khanna, Sunil Shetty, Paresh Rawal and Kangna Ranaut, has the cast (except Sush) featured prominently on the posters.
Says a source, "The actress stayed away from the photo shoots of the film.
Due to which she does not feature in the posters. As damage control, they have used her film stills on some posters."
So what is upsetting Sush?
Says an insider, "She feels Anil Kapoor is hogging all the attention. Sush is a diva in her own right and felt that she was not being promoted enough.
While Anil has been travelling all over promoting the film and even came on Bigg Boss with Akshaye Khanna, Sush was not invited. The actress is feeling hurt and has decided to stay away from the promotions."
But according to co-producer Rajat Rawail, "Sushmita is very much part of the promotions. It is just that she is not in town. Of late, she has been travelling a lot. She was in Dubai recently."
Her spokesperson maintains, "She has been extremely busy of late."
The insider adds, "Things are not exactly as it appears. Sushmita has always been frank and forthright. There have been issues between her and the makers.
She feels it is better to keep mum and stay away from the media glare." When asked what the problem was, Anil quipped, "No Problem."
