When Aamir shaved off his head, sad over losing his love…
It’s been over 29 years since superstar Aamir Khan’s dream debut film ‘Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak’ released, that made him a sensation overnight. The actor’s portrayal of a teenage lover landed him straight into the hearts of millions of female fans who were ultimately going gaga over his innocent smile and charming personality.
Post the release of this film, Aamir became the most eligible bachelor at that point of time until everyone got to know that he was already married to Reena Dutta, who was also seen playing a small part in the same film. It may sound amusing, but Aamir who had become the lover boy every girl dreamt about (after ‘QSQT’ release) was rejected not once, but thrice during his teenage years. And perhaps his sadness (at that time) could be felt which eventually lead him to shave off his head!
Recently, we stumbled upon an old interview of the superstar where he spoke to host Karan Thapar, in his show ‘Face to Face’. When he was asked whether in his teenage, he frequently fell in love, being quite a romantic at heart. He replied saying, “I did fall in love few times, but unfortunately each time I, you know, confessed my love to the girl… which took me hell of a lot of time because I used to get really scared to confess, you know… what I’m feeling; but when I did finally do that I was rejected… you know… I was rejected thrice, so I didn’t have like four girlfriends. I just fell in love four times but was unsuccessful each time.” (Also Read:What made Aamir Khan say no to award functions?)
Further, Karan asked him if it was true that at one such rejection, he even shaved off his head. Initially, Aamir smiled and replied saying, “No that was not! (smiled again) Oh Christ! Where did you get all this? No that wasn’t because of a rejection, that was more… I mean I lost the girl I loved and I mean she decided she no longer liked me. So, I was really upset and I was like… went and shaved my head off. Quite a dumb thing to do, but anyway.” Aamir was about 17-18 at that time.
How many of you connect with the sentiments Aamir went through?

When Sanjay Dutt didn't wake up for two days after taking drugs
Sunil and Nargis Dutt’s son, Sanjay Dutt‘s life has been a roller-coaster ride. Born in 1959, Sanjay Dutt’s life has always been under the media scanner. Though we know how eventful his life has been, after watching the trailer of his upcoming biopic ‘Sanju’, we all were quite surprised to know certain things about the various phases of this actor’s life. The film will apparently highlight all the highs and lows of Sanjay Dutt’s life in which his addiction to drugs will also form an integral part.
We came across an old video interview of the actor with veteran actress Simi Garewal from her show ‘Rendezvous with Simi Garewal’. In this interview, the actor spilled the beans on how badly his life got affected by his addiction to drugs. He went on to narrate an incidence where he once sniffed Heroin and went on to sleep for straight two days!

Sanjay woke up in the morning next day feeling extremely hungry. He asked his servant to make something for him but was shocked to see his servant cry. When Sanjay asked him why he was crying, the servant told him that he had woken up after two long days. This specific incident had left his entire family scared. After this episode, the actor understood that it was time to wake up and smell the coffee before it gets too late.

The actor later went into rehabilitation and came out clean. ‘Sanju’, directed by Rajkumar Hirani, has Ranbir Kapoor playing Sanjay Dutt. Also starring Sonam Kapoor, Paresh Rawal, Vicky Kaushal, Manisha Koirala in pivotal roles, the film is all set to hit the silver screens on June 29. Till then stay tuned for more such interesting stories.
Ranbir Kapoor gave these many retakes for a scene in 'Saawariya'
Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali and the word perfection go hand in hand. The man is extremely particular when it comes to his film and takes care of even the minutest details in every scene. This is also the reason why most of his films are blockbusters. One of the actors who was privileged enough to work with this man is none other than Ranbir Kapoor. Mr Kapoor made his Bollywood debut with SLB’s directorial ‘Saawariya’. Though the movie did not work wonders at the box office, it did give a fair amount of recognition to Ranbir.
In a recent interaction with senior journalist Anupama Chopra, the actor recalled his ‘Saawariya’ days and spoke about the no. of retakes he had to deliver for one particular scene in the song ‘Jab Se Tere Naina.’ (Also Read:In Pics: Lovebirds Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt visit Sanjay Dutt’s residence)
The actor said,” I started with Sanjay Leela Bhansali and he doesn’t do anything less than 45 takes. So even if I had to turn my head, I probably had to give 50 takes. There was a shot in this so-called ‘towel song’ Jab Se Tere Naina, where I had to roll back on this chair and fall down and the towel had to fall in a certain way with my leg showing and there was one shot where I was lying down laughing and I had to get up and sing a song and he’s very particular about what beat you catch, he’s a very musical director – you fall on this beat, you lift your head here, you laugh here – everything is musical. I did 45 or 50 takes one day and my back really broke. The next morning when I came back, he said, ‘No, I’ve not got it’ and I had to do another 70 takes.”
Well, that is something huge but then if you wish to get appreciation from a man like Bhansali, you ought to put in that much amount of effort.
