Sanjay Dutt's chauffeur is apparently a huge fan of acting...
Having been part of the Dutt household for ages (he has been driver to Sanjay's mother Nargis as well as to his sister Priya during her student days), looks some of his boss' exemplary acting skills have rubbed off on him as well!
The actor thought of using him for a prank scene wherein he becomes Mallika Sherawat's father!
Says a unit source, 'They told him to act like a typical Hindi film dad. It was an emotional scene with Mallika pleading with him, but he remaining adamant. It was a very emotional scene and Mallika got fully prepared for the scene, despite the scene not narrated to her!'
SANJAY DUTT ON THE SETS OF DOUBLE DHAMAAL
Adds the source, 'It was Sanjay who requested director Indra Kumar to take Prasad for the scene. He even helped him to memorize his lines. Even though it was not in the script given to Mallika, the actress agreed to do the scene as Induji told her that some extra emotional naatak was needed.'
Says Director Indra Kumar, 'As our film is a comedy, Sanju approached me to let Prasad do a prank act with Mallika. So I narrated the scene and she got ready to enact it. But while doing the scene, Prasad said something really funny to her and she was taken aback. Sanjay burst out laughing. The film is full of pranks played on each other, off-screen as well as on-screen!'
Well, we all knew the four boys were full of dhamaal on sets, but looks like Sanjay Dutt was the ringleader of them all!!
