No, Omi Vaidya hasn’t ditched his wife. His marriage to Shraddha Das was an on-screen match for Madhur Bhandarkar’s romantic comedy,
Dil Toh Bachcha Hai Ji
. The wedding scene forms an important part of the plot.
The scene reminded the actor of his own marriage to Mina Patel in August, 2009. It was a traditional Marathi cine wedding for Vaidya and Das. The latter was really excited since this was the first time she was a bride on screen.“It was fun. When you see the movie, you will know why the scene is so hilarious,” says Das. She plays an RJ in Mumbai, who comes to the city from Kolkata. Vaidya is a 30-year-old employee in a matrimonial website. Das’s dream is to become rich, while Vaidya wants to find true love.
The film, which also stars Ajay Devgn, Emraan Hashmi and Shazahn Padamsee, releases on January 28.
