Band Baaja Baaraat director Maneesh Sharma, who has been an assistant director for films like Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi and Fanaa, has a knack for shooting scenes really quickly. His team was so good that they managed to shoot a five page long dramatic rain sequence scene in just 17 minutes! And after all the hard work, came fun. The director and cast’s favorite eating joint while shooting in New Delhi was ‘Aap Ki Khatir’ in Khan Market. On one occasion, 17 cast and crew members celebrated a team member’s birthday dancing the night away in a small hotel room which could barely hold seven people.
‘Band Baaja Baaraat’ is the debut film for actor Ranveer Singh as also for director Maneesh Sharma. The leading lady Anushka Sharma had Yash Raj Films’ ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’ as her launch pad. Interestingly, it was Maneesh who auditioned both Ranveer and Anuskha for their roles in ‘Band Baaja Baaraat’ and ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’ respectively.
