Arjun Rampal has been dropped by the company that was managing him. This agency handles many clients from the entertainment world like Saif Ali Khan, Bipasha Basu, Asin Thottumkal, Chitrangda Singh and many more. They also handle Hrithik Roshan’s account. While the list of all these clients appears on their website, Arjun’s name no longer features in it. And that’s a new development.
According to an insider, “Arjun and Hrithik were both clients of Carving Dreams (now called Exceed World) — a multi-platform entertainment management company. But recently Hrithik told them that he did not want his agency to handle Arjun’s work. He put pressure on them to drop the Ra.One actor. On their part, the entertainment company tried their best to hold on to both clients but when Duggu gave them the ‘it’s either me or him’ option, they chose to stick to the more successful actor.” It just made for a good business decision, even if they had to drop Rampal for no fault of his.” In the new page online (http://www.exceedworld.co.in/artists.html) Arjun’s name no longer figures on the list of clients.
Hrithik and Arjun were close buddies until recently. They partied and even went on holidays together with their families. In fact, it was Hrithik who had recommended Arjun to Carving Dreams.
And now he asked the talent management company to stop handling Rampal’s affairs.
Interestingly, both Hrithik and Arjun share the same publicist.
