What Milind Gunaji said about Shah Rukh Khan

In the new interview with Rajshri Unplugged, Milind Gunaji said in Hindi: “It was a difficult time for me to overcome. I remember Shah Rukh Khan, he is such a gentleman and a nice person. He used to come and sit with me during the shoot. He told me that he was feeling sorry about this situation and said that if something needs to stop, they will stop. He said that there won’t be any problem, and they can stop the shoot. Sanjay (Leela Bhansali) sir also told me the same thing.”

Milind Gunaji then shared that he was grateful for the concern shown by both Shah Rukh and Sanjay Leela Bhansali, but he did not want to delay the shoot for his personal reasons.

In the same interview, Milind also opened up about the shoot of Dola re Dola starring Madhuri Dixit and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. He said that during a long shot, which was challenging because it involved a handheld camera and a lot of movements with the other dancers, some technical mistakes were happening. But Sanjay Leela Bhansali made sure to extract the best shot. Even his closeups in the song were shot quickly.
