The absence of actor Sharan in the press conference of the film Neenadre Ishta Kano, a few days earlier, has resulted in wild speculation in Sandalwood that the comedy actor turned lead actor did not want to promote the film since his is a comedy role in the film while Dhruv Sharma is the hero. The film was completed a year ago and was struggling to get released. Dhruv's popularity in the Celebrity Cricket League and Sharan's new found fan following after Rambo helped the film find theatres now. Sharan's photos in the film's posters are equally prominent compared to the lead actor's.
However Sharan's says his absence should not be mistaken. "I had informed the film makers that I was indisposed so cannot attend the press meet. After becoming hero in one film, I have not become arrogant or forgotten my roots. I was a comedy actor in so many films and have not forgotten that. I will continue to do such roles offered to me. Neenadre Ishta Kano is also my film and I will support it and promote it like any of my films. I have background in theatre and television. I have no airs about being a film hero. I want to clear the speculation that I am not promoting the film. I only missed one press meet."
