Another fun-filled Goa-based Dil Chahta Hai on the block? The promos of Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani's forthcoming Honeymoon Travels... give a wonderfully hilarious feel to the film - for starters, a shot of Raima Sen going parasailing in a sari!
"I had never done parasailing in my life!" laughs Raima. "Not only did I have to parasail in Goa but do it in a sari, so you can imagine what I went through," she adds.
Rumouredly, that created some problems on the beach! "Several curious and unwanted visitors landed up on our set because they thought Raima was stuck mid-air!" reveals director Reema Kagti. It seems Raima had to be airborne for several hours till the shot was right!
"She went through some training and was wonderful during the shoot despite the difficult conditions," adds Kagti. About the entire episode, Raima, on her part says, "I definitely want to go parasailing again but not in a sari!"
Honeymoon Travels.... releases worldwide on February 23. It is a Studio 18 international release.
