Rajni’s not done yet. Now she wants me to hear about how Kareena Kapoor got a standing ovation for performing a difficult emotional scene in one take. Go on, I say and she claims to have heard this tiddy-bitty from a source from the unit of Karan Johar’s remake of Stepmom, also featuring Kajol and Arjun Rampal.
So, I’m informed that it was a very crucial scene and everyone expected a couple of retakes before it would be okayed… More so since it was a highly emotional sequence and the actress had to mouth equally emotional lines. But when the camera rolled, and Bebo got into ‘action’ mode, she delivered a perfect shot in one take. And on replaying it a couple of times, they all felt that there couldn’t be a better take, I’m told. Suna hai, K Jo was so pleased to hear about Bebo’s one-take scene that he couldn’t stop raving about her, says Rajni. Kewl!
