After shooting on a yacht for one of the scenes in Awarapan, director Mohit Suri was standing near the edge of the yacht smoking a cigarette, when one of his leading ladies, the sultry model, Mrinalini Sharma (rumoured to be seeing newcomer Tushar Jalota, also being launched by the Vishesh Films banner in Mahesh Bhatt's Showbiz) pushed him into the open sea.
Mercifully, Mohit never got angry because he shares a great rapport with Minty (as he fondly calls her) and knows that what she did was in complete jest.
When we asked him about the incident, he laughed, "Yeah, it happened in Pattaya. The water was deep and pretty rough but thankfully I know how to swim! I was drenched by the time I came back to the yacht. One of my crew members was kind to give me a pair of track pants and t-shirt to change into!"
Talking about how Minty got signed up for the role of Reema Zaidi in Awarapan, Mohit states, "We auditioned a number of girls and her audition was the best of the lot. Watch her in the film - you won't believe she's a newcomer." The movie has actor Emraan Hashmi
Did Emraan Hashmi grow his hair for Awarapan? At a recently held press conference of the film in London, he was seen in a similar get-up as in Awarapan, compelling people to wonder whether that was going to be his new look in perpetuity.
We are told that Emraan has actually worn hair extensions but they've been so well designed that they look natural, and seamlessly go with the rest of his hair. To get the right fit, Emraan would take hours to get these on before his shots.
Laughs director Mohit Suri, "Yes, Emi has worn hair extensions in Awarapan. It took him longer to get them on than the time the girls took to get ready!" Maybe the extensions will be off once Awarapan releases on June 29!
