While Kangana and Upen Patel have been shooting for Suneel Darshan's Shaka Laka Boom Boom in
South Africa reports about their mutual admiration have been filtering back into Mumbai, suggesting a rather
rapidly developing warmth between the two.
Upen doesn't deny a special affinity to Kangana. "But that's it! There's nothing beyond a friendship with
Kangana," Upen doesn't know whether to be alarmed or amused by the rumours back home.
mean Kangana and I get along like a house on fire. She with her Himachal accent, me with my British-Gujju
accent, we're quite a pair. But there's nothing more to our friendship. I wish people wouldn't be so provincial
in their perceptions on friendships.
Can't two young people have fun without being involved with one
another? Kangana and I enjoy one another's company so far away from home. We rib each other

get into a relationship, or even begin to get interested in a boy I'd scream from rooftops. I don't hide my
feelings, because I can't.
Upen is just not my type. His dreams, aspirations and method of
self-projection are quite different from mine. I can't even connect with his conversation. Given a chance I'd
just like to share a professional rapport with him. Honestly I just want to go back home."
