Zayed Khan, who gained fame with Farah Khan’s directorial debut Main Hoon Na revealed how she ‘abused and threw her chappal’ on him during the shoot of Shah Rukh Khan, Sushmita Sen and Amrita Rao starrer. In an interview, he revealed that Farah got angry after he shouted ‘cut’ on the sets.
Zayed said, “This was a time when we were shooting on 400 feet of film and not on digital. So it was not like ‘Jitne bhi takes chahiye, le lo. There was a discipline on set. Also, we were on a high attitude. After giving one take, haalat kharab ho jaati thi. I remember, during the shoot, the camera captured Amrita Rao and was coming towards me. Everyone around me was like ‘Be ready, be ready, be ready’. The dancers had done it too many times."
He continued, “Anyway, the camera panned towards me and one of the dancers next to me fell down. He got a fit as he was so exhausted. I didn’t know what to do. I started performing but then I realized I’d have to dance over this chap. I thought, ‘This cannot be my introduction’. So, I said, ‘Cut’. And Farah got so angry. She abused the hell out of me and also threw her chappal on me. I told her, ‘How do you expect me to dance over somebody who is dying, man’. She thundered, ‘You can’t say Cut on my bl***y set. I’ll say Cut’. Finally, the unit members realise that the poor guy is lying down. He was rescued. Then we did it again and it went on very smoothly."
Main Hoon Na released in 2004 and also starred Suniel Shetty, Boman Irani, Bindu, Satish Shah amongst others.
