Juhi further recalled working with Rishi on the sets of Sharmaji Namkeen. He told, “He always scolded me on the sets, always. When he started scolding me, I started laughing. It was great fun working with him. Pyaar se scold him.” He further recalled an incident where Rishi shouted at him for looking at the director’s monitor.
She said, “Chintu ji was spontaneous and sparkling when the scenes were going on on the sets and I was standing in front of him and battling my take. I knew what was happening inside me. I was like, ‘Chintu ji’ Ji has such good shots. Not good if I don’t come. So, Chintuji used to say- ‘Monitor is not for actors. Why are you behaving like an unsafe actress? Hitesh, why do you allow him to watch the monitor’ are giving.’ But I still went and looked at the monitor. I loved it all. Had a lot of fun.”
Sharmaji Namkeen, which also stars Suhail Nayyar, Taruk Raina, Satish Kaushik, Sheeba Chadha and Isha Talwar, is directed by Hitesh Bhatia. The film will release on Amazon Prime Video on March 31.
