While shooting for Aarakshan in Bhopal, Prakash Jha apparently asked the movie’s lead actress Deepika Padukone to report on the sets on time.
This is Deepika’s first movie with Jha, and naturally the actress is new to his way of working. While Deepika usually arrives late on the sets, Jha on the other hand is very punctual and likes to finish his shoot on time. Not just Deepika but her co-star Saif Ali Khan, who plays a professor in the film, is also rarely on time.
“Deepika and Saif are invariably late for the shooting despite there not being many options for partying in Bhopal,” a source is quoted telling a daily.
Perhaps, they should take a cue from their co-star Amitabh Bachchan, who even after spending decades in the industry continues to be a well-disciplined actor. Big B, who plays a pivotal role in the film, is always on time.
