Deepika Padukone getting late for a Shooting!: A senior and maverick director like Prakash Jha wants to see some discipline from his cast. Shooting for Aarakshan in Bhopal, he apparently asked the movie’s lead actress Deepika Padukone to report on the sets on time.
This is the first time Deepika is working with Jha, and naturally the actress is new to his way of working. Jha is very punctual and likes to finish his shoot in time. But Deepika usually arrives late on the sets, so Jha had to ask her to sleep early in order to come early. In fact, as per reports, her co-star Saif Ali Khan, who plays a professor in the film, is also rarely on time.
“Deepika and Saif are invariably late for the shooting despite there not being many options for partying in Bhopal,” a source is quoted telling a daily. Deepika has understood what is expected from her, now the crew hopes for a smoother schedule.
Perhaps, they should take a cue from their co-star Amitabh Bachchan, who even after spending decades in the industry continues to be a well-disciplined actor. Big B, who plays a pivotal role in the film, is always on time.
