Sharad Kelkar praises Deepika Padukone

Sharad heaped praise on his co-star and said, “I remember one incident very well. More than love, I respect her (Deepika) a lot. I had a knee surgery at that time and we were shooting for the song - Lahu muh lag gaya. I had to do the Garba while sitting. My physio told me, ‘You can’t sit because you just had a surgery, you can't bend below 90 degrees.' I was unable to do it. Because of pain due to surgery, I couldn't do it. Since, Sanjay Sir is a perfectionist, he said ‘Do as much as you can manage to perform.’ I was not getting the steps. Deepika was dancing barefoot with full bruises in her feet. Full tape bandh k usne 11 din shoot kiya pain me (She danced with tapes around her foot for eleven days, despite being in pain). But I remember when I went blank and couldn't remember the steps for the song. It was lunch time, Deepika stayed back and she taught me. She said, ‘You can do it. I’ll teach you.' Somehow I managed to do it and she was damn sweet.'”
