You've got to pay special attention to one particular shot of a loo in Lage Raho Munnabhai, the much-awaited sequel to Munnabhai MBBS.
For a comic scene with Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi, director Rajkumar Hirani needed a men's urinal. And in his endeavour to make it look authentic, he sent his team scouting the length and breadth of Mumbai for the right toilet.
"My assistants were looked upon as weirdos with a strange fetish when they went around taking pictures of men’s loos around town," laughs Hirani. Eventually, they found a snazzy blue-n-white tiled one in a popular suburban mall, with automatic flush sensors for every urinal.
But every time the crew was inside to shoot, the sensors would go berserk and start flushing simultaneously. Finally they had to vacate it briefly to get things in order and shoot.
