In an upcoming episode of ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ we’ll see some special guests, Bollywood actresses Ayesha Jhulka, Juhi Chawla, and Madhoo. While having a fun banter of questions with the actresses Kapil asked Ayesha Jhulka about the time she was working without rest for eight days straight! The actress was surprised to learn that the host had knowledge of this, “How do you know about this? This is a very specific, and secret thing.” to which Kapil responded that the research about this period was his love for actress.
The actress responded, sharing her experience of traveling to Chandivali, Mumbai for shooting: “I remember I was working on two films like I said we would work on three shifts, four shifts, two shifts. So, I was shooting for the film ‘Khiladi’, in the day, in Natraj Studio, and I had a full night shift in Chandivali for the film ‘Balma’ and on both sides, the choreographers were like terrors.” Choreographer Chinni Prakash, as mentioned by the actress, was a tough taskmaster.
She said: “I used to always be afraid of him, of Chinni sir. And the fact is that for most of my films I have worked with him! And I remember back in those days my makeup was so loud for ‘Khiladi’ but for a rain sequence, it was light. So removing that makeup then putting on another type of makeup in 14-15 minutes, I would do all of this in the car because I used to always be late, reaching Chandivali. I am really surprised that you know about this because I will never be able to forget those days.”
Ayesha Jhulka further added: “I also remember, Chinni Ji, Akshay, whoever was on set used to say drink soda and milk or Thumbs-up and milk, something like that and you’ll be wide awake for the shooting at night. Or you put soda on your face, let it go into your eyes. This was how they would advise me, my co-stars and choreographers, and all. And I used to also follow it genuinely so that I try to stay awake.”
