While numerous heroines take their 'Mummyji' to outdoor locations or get their boyfriends on at the film's sets, Randeep Hooda has taken an exception by making his mother accompany him for the shoot of his films. What happened Randeep, feeling insecure with all the female attention around?
Laughs Randeep, 'True man, I guess I am the only male actor who does so. I am attached to my mother and wanted her to accompany me on not just the sets but even outdoor locations.'
'There was a reason behind that though', Randeep gets serious here, "I have to credit RU-BA-RU for the kind of transformation I went through. Seriously, the moment I read the script of RU-BA-RU, it changed my life. The movie tells the story of this young couple who get to realize that life has so much to offer and doesn't have any place for trivial things because you never ever get today's moments back. An accident changes their life forever.'
In an emotionally charged mood, Randeep reminisces, 'As the film's plot started sinking in, I started missing my mother. I said to myself, 'I have this career and I am so immersed in it that I don't think of anything else. Have I ever went back and told my mother how much she meant to me? Will I be able to do so in future when I don't know whether we would exist or not? Shouldn't I be expressing my feelings for someone today rather than thinking about my future which always has a tomorrow?''
Result was that Randeep pronto called his mother for the film's shoot and ended up spending some quality time with her.
'I am glad RU BA RU happened to me', says Randeep, 'It changed the way I looked at life.'
