For actor Akshaye Khanna, the best part of shooting Rumy Jafferi’s film, Gali Gali Chor Hai, was playing Hanuman in a Ramlila sequence.

“Forget acting in one, I had never even seen a Ramlila live. So, it was great fun to slip into the costume, get a monkey face, wear a


(crown) and a tail, say my lines in the most dramatic way possible, and have the audience clapping and cheering,” says Akshaye.

In the film that also stars Mugdha Godse and Shriya Saran, and releases on February 3, Akshaye, plays a cashier whose hobby is acting.

The Ramlila sequence was shot at the famous Iqbal Maidan in Bhopal.
