Sources said only the leading lady would be present for the event which is scheduled for this afternoon.

Ranveer is shooting for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani off and on, and has got his head shaven last week, a source said, adding, “He will, of course, be promoting Kill Dil but will skip the song launch.”

A source close to the Kill Dil unit said although the makers were keen on Ranveer’s involvement in the promotions, they respected his decision to skip the event.

“He had earlier informed the makers that he may not be present for each and every promotional activity,” said the source.

While Ranveer was unavailable for comment, the film spokesperson said, “He was never going to be part of the song launch. We were keen to get it unveiled by Parineeti as it coincides with her birthday. She readily agreed.”
