In a recent interaction with Mashable India, Sushmita Sen, renowned Bollywood actress, revealed a heartening incident from the sets of the classic film ‘Biwi No. 1’, where she starred alongside the prominent Salman Khan. The incident points to a supportive and unconventional attitude of Salman Khan, a stark contrast to typical expectations in the film industry concerning the height of actors.
Defying the Norms
Sushmita Sen narrated how the film’s director, David Dhawan, recommended her to wear flats, so as not to appear taller than her co-star Salman Khan. However, Salman Khan, in a gesture indicative of his progressive outlook, insisted that she wear heels, regardless of the height contrast. This revelation by Sen underscores the actor’s supportive and progressive stance, which stood for her choice of attire and personal appearance.
Further, in the interview, Sen discussed the continued camaraderie between the two actors. Having worked together on multiple films, including ‘Maine Pyaar Kyun Kia’ and ‘Tumko Naa Bhool Payenge’, their rapport was evident. Sen’s recounting of these experiences offers a glimpse into the supportive and respectful environment fostered on film sets, even amidst the high-pressure world of Bollywood.
An Unexpected Revelation
The interview concluded with another interesting revelation by Sushmita Sen about her experience working on ‘Main Hoon Na’. She disclosed that she was unaware that Shah Rukh Khan was part of the cast when she signed on for the film. This anecdote adds a light-hearted note to the intense and often unpredictable world of filmmaking.Share on Facebook «||» Share on Twitter «||» Share on Reddit «||» Share on LinkedIn
