Salman comes to brother-in-law’s rescue (Movie Snippets)

Friday, February 25, 2011

NEW DELHI - Bollywood star Salman Khan rescued brother-in-law Atul Agnihotri on the sets of “Bodygaurd” when actress Kareena Kapoor fell ill.

The star wasn’t required on sets on that particular day because his co-star Kareena’s solo portions were being filmed, but shooting came to a halt after the actress fell ill.

“The shooting had come to a halt since Kareena fell ill and Salman wasn’t expected till much later. A lot of time would have been wasted and nearly 200 people would have been left hanging if it weren’t for Salman’s quick thinking,” said a source.

In order to make it on time Salman took the same helicopter that had flown him to Jaipur that morning back to Pune.

Said Agnihotri: “Salman bhai saved a day’s shooting for us after Kareena fell ill and was advised two days’ bed rest. We were canning a song that day and so I didn’t have a supporting cast to fall back on. I requested Salman bhai to return early and he was back by the time we’d finished lunch. And we shot some solo portions with him.”


When Madhavan left Swara embarassed

Bollywood actor R.Madhavan pulled a fast one on actress Swara Bhaskar on the sets of “Tanu Weds Manu” that released Friday.

The actor, along with the chief assistant director and Deepak Dobriyal, fooled the 25-year-old into believing that a woman who looked like choreographer Saroj Khan was actually Saroj.

A source narrated: “One day on the sets while getting ready to shoot a dance sequence, the cast was informed that legendary Indian dance choreographer Saroj Khan would be choreographing their dance steps. Swara was innocently excited and thrilled hearing this, being a huge Saroj Khan fan.”

“Realising this, Madhavan came up with a scheme and introduced Swara to a woman who looked similar to Saroj-ji on the sets…,” said a source.

But once Swara realised that she was not talking to the real Saroj Khan, Madhavan burst out laughing, leaving Swara feel goofy and embarrassed.

Swara, who plays Kangana Ranaut’s best friend in “Tanu Weds Manu”, earlier featured in films like “Madholal Keep Walking” and “Niyati”.
