While shooting for producer Indra Kumar and Ashok Thackeria's DHAMAAL, directed by Indra Kumar, the cast had a real blast? it seems!!!
In a crucial scene the gangs of four lovable rogues - Arshad Warsi, Aashish Chowdhury, Javed Jaffrey and Ritiesh Deshmukh - are supposed to steal pizzas from their landlady and on being found out, they have to throw it up on the ceiling to hide it. However, these four pranksters polished off all the pizzas before the shot could be taken. The producer had to order more pizzas at the last minute, which delayed the shoot by a few hours!!
Recalls actor and pizza eater Aashish Chowdhury, 'We had two kinds of pizzas, some were artificial and magnetic so that when we threw them, they would get stuck on the ceiling. Others were real. And without realizing what we were doing, we started eating the real ones. Our director, Indra Kumar was shocked when he realized that there were no pizzas left for close-up shots! Poor Ashok, our producer, had to order more pizzas for the shoot. Initially we thought that our director and producer would be very angry but, thank God, they just laughed it off!!!'
Well, we don't know what hurt the actor's tummies more, pizza or laughter!
