Director Prakash Jha has an uncanny sense of humour. When asked by a scribe how he managed a power-packed star cast of young actors (Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif) and National Award winners (Arjun Rampal, Manoj Bajpai, Ajay Devgan and Nana Patekar) during the shooting of Raajneeti (Stills), the director replied, “The young actors would wake up at 5 O’clock in the morning and make tea for the National Award winners. They would sit on the floor, while the rest of us sat on chairs!”
While Prakash Jha had a laugh at the actors’ expense, a grinning Ranbir Kapoor retorted, “Arjun Rampal had not won the National Award when Raajneeti was being shot”. Katrina Kaif added that they all enjoyed great camaraderie while shooting the film, and that they would gather periodically in Nana Patekar’s room because of his delicious cooking.
Nana even taught Ranbir how to peel a banana (Video)! Clearly, politics, in this case, was fun…
