Gautam Hegdegrills the lead pair of the 1942-based love story Mohe Rang Deon names, events and dates...
Gavie Chahal’sreal name is Navdeepak Singh Chahal. He arrived in Mumbai three years ago. After a brief stint in
Kyunki Saas bhi Kabhi Bahu thi, Gavie returned to Punjab to try his luck in Punjabi films. He took up Mohe Rang De because it promised to be a clutter breaker. A self-confessed “hot-blooded guy who loves action scenes,” Gavie was to shoot his introduction scene in a two-seater aircraft which didn’t materialise. The actor is nervous about scenes in which he barely has lines. His car rammed into co-star Prabhleen Sandhu during one sequence. Gavie says that since it was a vintage car, it took a while to brake it to a halt. Prabhleen’s leg was injured. Did she scold him? “Marna hai usko mujhe daant ke?” he mock-growls.
Prabhleen Sandhuis a Punjabi film actress. She didn’t want to work on TV despite being coaxed by her mother and friends. She tested for Mohe Rang De though. After the test, she backed out. It was only when her hero Gavie Chahal and producer Deepti Bhatnagar convinced her, that she took it on. Now the 24-year-old is thrilled that she gets to climb walls and do action sequences involving fire.
Prabhleen’s introduction in the show involved a bomb blast. The actress didn’t realise the seriousness of the shoot until she saw that 60 litres of petrol were used for the blast. “I asked the unit guys if the sound would be like crackers at Diwali,” she giggles. The shot was okayed in one take.
