What happens when a superstar like Salman Khan suddenly falls into a deep sleep during the shooting of his film? Does his team and the director wake him up and ask him to get back to shooting or wait for him to get up on his own? Here’s what exactly happens….
Salman Khan is known for taking un-announced naps on the sets of his film. Here’s what happened when the actor unexpectedly fell asleep on the sets of his film ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’. Actor Raj Sharma, who played the role of the bus conductor in the movie, recently revealed one such incident in an interview. “The moment I walked into the sets of Bajrangi Bhaijaan, I saw Salman Khan texting. I asked myself – Is it so easy to meet Salman? He’s looking a bit different too. Maybe because I’m seeing him so closely… But that is when the actor who was texting told me that he is indeed Salman’s lookalike and does his body double job in many of his films.”
“When I walked further, I saw the real Salman Khan. The crew was about to shoot a scene when the actor — while sitting — fell asleep. One by one everyone noticed that he’s napping. But you know what, nobody asked him to get up. Indeed, everyone — including the director — kept looking at each other’s face, silently asking and wondering what to do now? Bhai so gaye hain. Ab Bhai ko kaun uthaaye? The way they were whispering ‘Bhai ko kaun uthaaye‘ reminded me of the adage, ‘Billi ke galey mein kaun ghanti baandhey‘. So, you know, when a superstar like Salman Khan suddenly sleeps on the sets, nobody wants to wake him up.”
“Salman so jaate hain toh lagta hai ki sab kuch ruk gaya. Sab kuch ruk hi gaya tha sets pe. And then suddenly, Salman woke up. He got up and realised that everyone is looking at him. So, he quickly said, oh main so gaya tha. Chalo, chalo start kartey hain. That was a very interesting moment for me,” Raj was reminiscent of his experience.
