The Dev D actor had a few pegs too many while shooting for a dance sequence in Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster and was unable to perform a single step
The director of the forthcoming film Sahib Biwi Aur Gangster, Tigmanshu Dhulia, told the media recently that lead actor Mahie Gill took her alcoholic character in the film, way too seriously while shooting for a song and dance sequence. The director said that the actor asked him whether she could have a peg of vodka before giving the shot. Tigmanshu agreed thinking that the actor wanted to get into her element. But it took quite a while for the camera to be set up and Mahie downed a few more pegs as she waited for the shot to be ready. “After a few drinks she couldn’t even perform simple steps and somehow I wrapped up the shooting,” said the director. When the actor came to know that Tigmanshu was angry with her she flew back to Mumbai from the location of the shoot in Gujarat. She had to be convinced that everything was fine. Well, Mahie, it’s not always good to get into the skin of your character! Hic!
