Filmmaker Karan Johar apologised to Alia Bhatt while shooting for Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani song. But why? He made her wear chiffon sarees in the freezing weather while Ranveer Singh was in jackets. Alia recently dropped a BTS video where KJo apologised to her for torturing her during Tum Kya Mile song.
Karan Johar apologises to Alia Bhatt during song shoot
In the video, the director revealed that many things were happening during the song shoot in Kashmir. Alia added, “I was in a chiffon saree“. KJo then immediately apologised to her for making her go through this in the freezing cold. He said, “Oh my God, yeah I mean we tortured you. I’m sorry.“
Alia then asked how he felt after wrapping the song’s shoot. Karan said, “I think I haven’t shot a song like this since like Student of The Year and that too it was not a chiffon saree song since Tumhi Dekho Na song. So I’m shooting a song like this after 17 years and this is a chiffon saree song. I had to see you in those sarees, it was like a full circle.” Karan asked her about her feelings, and Bhatt said, “I felt extremely cold. But it was the most fun I’ve had I think.” Johar complimented her by saying she was acing it.
KJo said actors don’t get credits for shooting in such conditions
The Ae Dil Hai Mushkil director also added, “I always found it really difficult how both lead actors act in these extreme climates. Where there’s also a fan blowing by them so that their hair flies. Then they have to look romantic, they have to look into each other and sensuous romantic. Everything swing on those emotions in sub temperatures I’m like we don’t give credit, it’s crazy.”
While Alia mentioned how Ranveer Singh’s jacket kept coming her way, Karan shared, “A note to be made, Ranveer in a puffer jacket, she was in a chiffon saree. I’m really sorry but this sounds unfair.”
Directed by Karan, Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani will be released on July 28.
