Top directors (Imtiaz, Kabir, Zoya) reveal names of actors who are always late on the film sets.
Salman Khan & Shahrukh Khan are Late-Latifs
On his show ‘Koffee With Karan’, most of the time Karan Johar manages to put his guests in a spot, especially in the Rapid Fire round. He did the same to directors Imtiaz Ali, Kabir Khan and Zoya Akhtar as well, during
the Rapid Fire round in one of the recent episodes.
Karan made the directors reveal the names of top actors who are always late on the film sets for shoots.
Guess whose names did they mention? None other than the two superstars ‘Shah Rukh Khan’ and ‘Salman Khan’.
While Salman Khan is known to be a late-latif, not many expected SRK’s name to be on this list. So this is indeed a revelation.
Actually, Karan Johar himself had mentioned in one of the episodes that Shahrukh Khan has this habit of saying he will there in the next few minutes, even though he would be hundreds of kilometers away. And every time you call SRK to know where he is, he will give the same answer – that he will be there in minutes.
But then Karan Johar justified SRK’s action saying he’s a big star and its always worth the wait with Shahrukh.
It’ll be interesting to see what Salman and SRK have to say on this!
In one of the shows recently, one-time-foes Amitabh Bachchan and Shatrughan Sinha came together on the sets (and they’re very friendly to each other now).
While everybody agrees (including the young directors of today) that Amitabh Bachchan is (and has always been) the most punctual actor in the industry, Mr.Bachchan said that back in those days, when he and Shatrughan worked together in several films, Shatrughan would make everyone wait on the film-set for hours.
And Big B jokingly said that there are several advantages of coming late. “When you’re early on the sets, nobody notices you or gives you special treatment, but if you’re very late on the set (especially superstars), everybody rushes to you and asks ‘how are you’, ‘how are you feeling’, ‘do you want something to drink’, and so on.
Kapil Sharma does it again, keeps actors waiting for several hours
Shraddha Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapur had an unpleasant experience on The Kapil Sharma Show, as they were made to wait for 5 hours before the shooting began.
Last year, when Sunny Deol (who was making a comeback with Ghayal Once Again) had come on The Kapil Sharma Show to promote his movie, he had to wait for more than 5 hours as Kapil had not reached the sets. Sunny paaji was obviously upset with the treatment, but did not make a big fuss about it.
Now Kapil has done it again.
This time it was the turn of cute couple Shraddha Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapur, who were made to wait for 5 hours despite reaching at the said call time, as the host Kapil was nowhere around.
Clearly Kapil is leaving his guests fuming because of this particular habit. Hope Kapil’s New Year Resolution is to be Punctual!
