Excuse moi while I answer this call on my kaaliberry. Turns out to be a khabru who wants to tell me about Vidya Balan’s intimate scene with Arshad Warsi in Ishkiya.
Seems the two stars had become such good friends after working in Lage Raho Munnabhai just wouldn’t get the intimate sequence right. I’m told that every time Warsi got closer to Balan, she would burst out laughing. Naturally, he too would be amused.
But their amusement wasn’t as funny for Abhishek Chaubey, who’s directing the film for his mentor Vishal Bhardwaj’s production company. Because Warsi and Balan would just burst out each time Chaubey called for ‘Action!’
No wonder the ‘bechara’ director had to call for over two dozen retakes before he had got the shot right. Tsk tsk.
