At a recent shoot at Karjat about 12 days ago, where Bollywood's hottest bod Aarti Chabria was shooting for a song sequence, there was one shot which required her male co-star to sneak up behind her while riding an elephant near a river and squirt a trunkful of water on Aarti drenching her completely and showing off her sexy curves in the drenched outfit.
While her hero was thrilled about doing the shot, poor Aarti was shaking from head to toe. So just before the director could scream roll, Aarti went up to the huge elephant and patted him on his trunk.
Apparently, this sweet act on Aarti's part did the trick. The director yelled roll and action and the hero rode on towards Aarti goading the elephant into action while Aarti shivered to the bone. However, the mighty animal though it raised its trunk before trembling Aarti, simply refused to drench her.
A few hours and many takes later, an exasperated director, dejected hero and flabergasted crew finally decided that a help hiding behind the elephant would have to do the elephant's job. Of course a thankful Aarti didn't forget to give the helpful elephant a big hug and a bag of fresh vegetables for dinner. Did someone say love and simplicity humbles even the mighty and powerful.
