Shooting a flick has always been tricky. There are lots of dynamics to take into consideration when actors congregate for prolonged periods, especially if you’re stuck filming on a Mediterranean cruise ship! Such was the case during the shooting for Zoya Akhtar’s upcoming ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’. Friendships were quickly forged due to proximity, only to be dissolved by deceit, and then rekindled stronger after the dust settled.
Co-stars Priyanka Chopra and Anushka Sharma shared such a rocky bond on-set.
Turns out co-star Farhan Akhtar was the focal point of the tiff between two of Bollywood’s sexiest starlets. Initially the two ‘got on like a house on fire’ during the cruise. But, the flame was abruptly snuffed out once the duo hit the shore and PeeCee discovered that ‘Nushie’ had been supplying tabloids with bogus information. According to SaharaSamay, Sharma leaked information that Priyanka and Farhan had been ‘extra close’ on the cruise and were even, having an affair.
Priyanka was utterly bewildered by the ludicrous fabrication, and defended herself by saying her friendship with Farhan dated way back to their ‘Don’ days with big daddy Shah Rukh Khan. This put a cap on the actresses’ freshly baked friendship as Priyanka resorted to distancing herself from Anushka keeping her ‘at an arm’s length’. Co-stars Ranveer Singh and Anil Kapoor did well to keep out of it, and kept the drama under wraps by refusing to comment.
Shoot over… Friendship over… Or so it seemed but wait, apparently there’s more…
Upon returning to Mumbai, the young Anushka found herself surrounded by a horde of restless fans at the airport, but guess who came to her rescue? None other than the victim of her treachery Piggy Chops, who exhibited a bit of her ‘Mary Kom-ness’ and whisked away the helpless hottie, saving her from the groping hands of over eager admirers.
