After hundreds painstakingly learnt the art of tossing a cigarette in the air the way superstar Rajnikant does, Aishwarya Rai too joined the throng. No, the actress did not attempt to perform the trick herself but was keen on observing Rajnikant’s famous scene of tossing his cigarette in the air. Here’s one wispy prank she played…
Aishwarya, who was shooting with Rajnikant, while he had to toss the cigarette, repeatedly kept making a mistake so that there could be re-takes. It turns out that she just couldn’t get over Rajni’s twisted stunt.
A source reveals, “Rajnikant’s trademark style of tossing the cigarette, is loved by Ash. She could ask him once or twice at max to enact this scene for her, but she wanted to see it repeatedly.
Thus she purposely kept making mistakes while shooting her scene; Rajnikant ended up enacting his patented stunt six times.”
The source continues, “It was after the wrap-up of the shoot that Ash mentioned to Rajnikant about how much she loves the way he does this particular stunt, and she was bluffing so that she could see him do this time and again.
Rajnikant burst out laughing and took it in his stride.”
Shankar, the director of the film, said, “We only realised while shooting that Ash was such a big fan of Rajni sir.”
Shankar, let’s hope that the cigarette wasn’t lit. It’s not allowed on screen the last we heard…
