Embarrassed Sonam, Ranbir say they are not big stars

Mumbai, Oct 14 (IANS) Two young actors making a debut next month with "Saawariya" have been put in an embarrassing situation: a tabloid story says Sonam Kapoor threw a tantrum at a promotional TV programme while Ranbir Kapoor has been called a gay icon in another report.

"Yes, it's true that I re-shot one portion of one of my promotional programmes on Channel V. But, please, there was no starry tantrum. I was very apologetic," Sonam told IANS.

She explained: "I've been tutored in the Sanjay Bhansali school of filmmaking. Over there, we were taught to strive for the best, no matter what the medium. For me, a TV show isn't a casual thing. So, after shooting the whole day if I re-shot for 15 minutes, does that make me a tantrum thrower?"

Ranbir, son of Neetu and Rishi Kapoor, says let him prove his mettle before any title is given to him.

He said: "I'm just starting out. My first film hasn't been released. I'm in no position to be called any kind of icon. Once I prove myself, I'd be happy to be loved by any community of people."

The duo are debuting with Sanjay Leela Bhansali's musical "Saawariya", releasing Nov 9.
