Riteish gets beaten up by Sajid's son!
In a very hilarious scene in HEYY BABYY, Riteish Deshmukh, who plays the character 'Eddy the Teddy', an event organizer for Kids, gets beaten up by the kids in true matrix style. And guess who was the leader of the brat pack; none other than producer Sajid Nadiadwala's son Subaan.
"This funny sequence is something never done in Bollywood so far. The kids had to be literally trained in gymnastics and action sequences. Action director Mahendra Verma has trained all these children including Subhaan to perform the stunts. The kids were harnessed to wires to get a matrix style action sequence. The kids will just love this scene," says Sajid Khan, the director of HEYY BABYY.
He adds, "Riteish is playing a Maharastrian character called Tanmay Joglekar. He is called 'Eddy the Teddy' since he is a party organizers for kids. He literally had to wear a 20 kg furry outfit for the sequence. EDDY THE TEDDY character is gonna be a big hit with the kids."
Sajid Nadiadwala's Subaan has acted in MAIN HOO NAA and MUJHSE SHAADI KAROGI (Incidentally both the films were super hits) and now HEYY BABYY. He is plays the leader of the gang who plans to beat EDDY the TEDDY.
Riteish was also excited about the role he is playing and this particular scene where he is beaten up by Subaan and his Kids gang. "I am playing an interesting character called Eddy the Teddy, entertaining kids in parties. For this particular sequence, luckily I had to wear a padded costume, though it was too strenuous, it lessened the blow from the kids. It was simply hilarious," says Riteish.
"The scene has 100 children in a mood to beat up Eddy the Teddy Subaan is the leader of the brat pack. Whenever there is a sequence in the films about children, I would love to have Subaan in it. Though he is very young, he will gain experience and fond memories of the same, when he grows up. Even my wife Wardha seems excited to see him perform," concludes Sajid Nadiadwala.
