Newcomer Diana Penty is a huge Bon Jovi fan and, as her luck turned out, the pop icons were performing in London when she was shooting there for her debut film, Cocktail.
However, according to a unit member, the concert was sold out and a disappointed Diana shared her sorrow with members of the crew.
Interestingly, the next morning, on the sets of Cocktail, Diana found a mysterious envelope lying in her make-up van.
“She opened it and there were two tickets to the Bon Jovi concert inside,” says our source. He adds: “She was completely blown away and had no idea who had sent them. She asked everyone among the crew if they knew where the tickets came from, but nobody seemed to know.”
It remained a mystery for a few days, but the unit — and Diana — eventually found out who Diana’s secret benefactor was.
It was Diana’s chauffeur, a young English boy, who had blown all his earnings from the shoot to buy the tickets for her. “She was extremely flattered and touched by the gesture and she thanked him profusely. And what a blast Diana had at the concert,” says our insider.
Co-producer Dinesh Vijan says with a smile: “Diana is a huge Bon Jovi fan. When one of the chauffeurs found that out and also that she wanted to attend the concert, he got her front-row passes.”
