Zeenat Aman reached the sets of the special Diwali show on Zee TV almost half-an-hour early.
So, she went inside her make-up van and locked it up. Two and a half hours later, the entire crew was knocking at her door to get her out and escort her to the actual stage for the shoot.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who was also present on the sets, took just an hour to get ready.
Enquiries from the sets reveal that Aman had directly arrived from the airport and had gone off to sleep. The actor later asked the unit to drive her in a car from the van to the venue, which was just 100 meters away. Phew!
