When Shahrukh Khan, Deepika Padukone Survived on Biscuits
Oh the travails of stardom, and who knows it better than our very own Shahrukh Khan. It so happened that Shahrukh Khan Deepika Padukone director Rohit Shetty along with a motley crew literally survived on biscuits, while shooting for a train sequence in Chennai Express.
According to sources, a crew of 200 strong were shooting for the train sequence so could not move, therefore they survived on biscuits, “This was during an elaborate schedule at Dudhsagar, Goa. There was a major train sequence that had to be filmed on location and we had to be there at 6 am in the morning every day to shoot that. Since this involved a train that passed through a bridge on a scheduled hour, we had to work on very tight timelines.There was lunch prepared for us but we realized that by the time we were ready for it, it was rotten”.
Shahrukh Khan came up with a solution to this problem,”Shah Rukh Khan led from the front and we procured tons of biscuit packs which belonged to varied variety. Everyone skipped their regular day meals for almost a week and there were no complaints whatsoever.”
Well it sure seems like a good idea to solve hunger pangs.
