When Paresh Rawal refused to drive a truck
IANS [ Tue, Apr 9, 2013 ]
- Chennai, April 9 (IANS) Bollywood actor Paresh Rawal, who will be seen playing a truck driver in upcoming Hindi comedy "Life Mein Hungama Hain", refused to drive a truck after he felt little intimated by the size of the vehicle.
"Paresh had to drive a big truck in the film. But when he saw it, he refused to drive it. He was a little scared because he had never driven such a big vehicle before. But, we had no other option since he plays the character of a truck driver," director Sunil Advani said in a statement.
"But, then we were able to persuade him and he drove the truck with the ease of an expert," he added.
The film is based on Ruskin Bond's story "The Running Away". It's a fun-filled children's film peppered with unexpected adventures of two runaways, subtly underscoring the balanced view between discipline and freedom.
The film also features Saksham Kulkarni, Sonu Bakshi, Jackie Shroff, Urmila Matondkar and Boman Irani, among many more. It is produced under the banner of Nine Lives Films by Karun and Sahil.
