This is not a joke but it really happened on the set of Vishal Bharadwaj’s ‘Dedh Ishqiya’. Arshad Warsi slapped Madhuri Dixit on the set of ‘Dedh Ishqiya’. A scene required where Arshad had to hit Madhuri hardly and he was shivering to shoot the scene. While displaying anger, the actor gave a tight slap to Madhuri.
“Whenever the director told Arshad that the shot required him to hit Madhuri, he was nervous,” revealed a unit source.
The scene did not come easily to Arshad because Madhuri was a senior actor and he felt really awkward to hit her. But he was helpless as the script demand so and he finally had to shoot the scene. “The discomfort was so apparent that Madhuri could not help but feel amused by Arshad’s plight. The director had to ask for quite a few retakes as Arshad would invariably end up hitting her softly and the incident became a joke with the unit,” said the source.
‘Dedh Ishqiya’ is a sequel to blockbuster ‘Ishqiya’ and the film stars Madhuri Dixit, Arshad Warsi, Naseeruddin Shah and Huma Qureshi in the lead. The movie is in the news for Madhuri and Naseeruddin’s intimate scene. The film will also see Arshad getting cozy with Huma.
