It is a known fact that Hindi Film Industry's most talked about couple, AbhiAsh, after marriage started shooting for Sarkar Raj.
The film has been one of the most awaited as the couple comes on screen for the first time together after their marriage. And one is obviously very curious to know what scene they first shot for the film after their honeymoon.
A source close to the film says, "Ramu ji was very clear about this from day one… he wanted to shot a sequence when Abhishek Bachchan's character for the first time interacts with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's character. Abhishek's character in Sarkar Raj is shown as a supporter of the power plant and the head honcho of the power plant is Ash. This is a scene where they actually interact and it is with a lot of tentativeness and trying to weigh each other as people."
" Since they were shooting for the first time after marriage, there was an newness to their relationship and they were a bit conscious or rather a bit tentative in font of the entire unit… this worked beautifully for the scene, where they are shown getting to known each other".
Obviously, Sarkar Raj is a special film for several reasons. And since all three Bachchans were shooting together, lunch would be a completely family affair.
And being the newly wedded bahu of the Bachchan house Aishwarya Rai Bachchan would supervise what was cooked, Pa's favorite dish, Abhishek's favorite dish were all packed in for dabba… And what had really become a hit with both Pa and Abhishek was south Indian vegetarian fare…
Lunch hour was the only hour that family would get time to spend together, as after that it would be them in respective characters.
Amitabh Bachchan was heard talking in a press conference of Sarkar Raj that "yes it is special when you shoot with the family… but lunch hour was the only hour when we were together as a family and after lunch we would all get in the skin of our characters…back as unit members of a film."
