Bollywood magazines are always filled with masala, gossips and tales of romance between heroes-heroines on movie sets. It did help in creating major curiosity, and allowed people to connect with the Jodi’s onscreen romance.
Who can forget the moment when SUPERSTAR Vinod Khanna renounced his stardom and found peace into Bhagawan Rajneesh’s ashram! He was back in action after serving his guru, and signed some mega-budgets films, two of them which were with his old friend, Mahesh Bhatt. Out of ‘Jurm’ and ‘Prem Dharm’, ‘Prem Dharm’ had Hema Malini’s uncle as the producer, and starred her alongside Dimple Kapadia opposite Vinod Khanna.
Due to his sudden comeback and major pressure, he was delivering double shifts. One day while he decided to go for a night shift for ‘Prem Dharm’, he was asked to perform a scene where he had to kiss Dimple and later hug her before sleeping. The whole unit was ready, director was ready, Vinod came after a slight delay, changed into the costumes and took his place besides Dimple.
The light was minimum and Mahesh shouted “ACTION”. He followed and acted by kissing Dimple a few times and got over with it. But it seemed the Director wasn’t satisfied and asked for one retake.
Thus, the whole unit stepped a bit further, and Mahesh shouted “ACTION” once again. Vinod started again, kissed and hugged Dimple, suddenly when Bhatt called for a “CUT”.
To everyone’s shock, Vinod didn’t stop, kept on kissing her, held her more completely as he didn’t hear Mahesh Bhatt calling for a CUT. Dimple was in a state of shock, and was kind of miserable in the act when Mahesh and his assistants ran off to the set to stop Vinod by shouting “CUT, CUT”.
Vinod heard his voice and released Dimple, shocking both his lead actress and director. Dimple was rushed to her make up room in a state of shock, and Mahesh furiously confronted Vinod about his indecent behaviour. It was said that Mahesh made Vinod apologize to Dimple saying that he was intoxicated and literally LOST HIS PATIENCE.
IS IT TRUE, OR JUST ANOTHER GOSSIP IN THE MAKING?
