Shahid Kapoor was attending the premiere of Deepika Padukone's debut Hollywood film, xXx: Return of Xander Cage, but found himself rubbishing rumours of a rift with his Rangoon co-star Kangana Ranaut.

In December, a daily had published a report that Kapoor and Ranaut are unlikely to promote their upcoming release Rangoon together.

Kapoor was asked about the same at the premiere xXx: Return of Xander Cage, and he chose to set the record straight.

"There are no issues between me and Kangana. I read an article somewhere that we might not promote the film together. I will be happy to promote the film whenever, wherever with Kangana and Saif Ali Khan who is also a very big part of the film. There are no issues," said Kapoor.

The actor also heaped praise on his Rangoon director Vishal Bhardwaj. He said, "Rangoon is my third film with Vishal Bhardwaj. A large part of who I am as an actor is defined because of him. All films with him are special. Rangoon is very different from Haider and Kaminey. It’s a different and original film. So I am excited and looking forward."

The usually reticent Kapoor was in the mood to talk and as he also spoke about his pairing with Deepika Padukone for the first time.

"There was no ice to break. I have known Deepika for many years. We were offered many films together which didn’t work out. Today Padmavati is the perfect platform for us to come together," he said.
