It's never easy dealing with Bollywood actors, ask magazine coordinators. Here's what a few, working with some of the biggest publications, had to report...
Shooting for the launch issue of an international men's magazine, chote nawab Saif Ali Khan decided his hair wasn’t looking good. So he left his co-cover models Tamara Moss and Arjun Rampal waiting in the middle of the pool for an hour and a half till he got his hair done.
His girlfriend Kareena is no better. Once shooting for a fashion mag that arrived in India last year, Bebo was dressed up in couture and made up by her favourite make-up man. But she just didn’t ‘feel like turning up for the shoot’. Emerging out of her room nearly five hours later, she snapped at everyone until pack-up time.
Priyanka Chopra, film magazine-wallahs swear, just can't get off her phone. She may be in the middle of a shoot, but if her beau calls, everything has to wait until he decides to hang up.
But the award for strangest behaviour goes to the Bachchans. Apparently Bachchan Jr is ‘bored’ to death shooting for film stills. Rumour has it that once, while shooting film stills for a prominent film magazine, he tore off his prêt shirt and challenged them to “shoot him now”. But he obviously gets that from his father who, once when he was shooting for the cover of the same magazine, calmly walked across to an assistant director and slapped him. The reason? Amitabh Bachchan saw him puffing a cigarette and he doesn't like smoking at all.
