Mad-dy about onionsR Madhavan is not the kind who shies away from kissing his heroines on screen. Remember the searing lip-lock with Vidya Balan in Guru? But if reports are to be believed, Maddy may be just a wee bit out of practice. What with all the jokes about his kissing scene with Bipasha for their next going viral in the industry.
It happened like this. The unit of Jodi Breakers was shooting in Greece on an island called Mykonos. According to our source from the unit, the shoot was on for 12-13 days, during which all 75 people in the unit were living on local cuisine. “Eventually, they were all craving for Indian food,” said our source, adding that some Punjabi boys who were regulars on the set offered to treat them to some home-style food.
On the 14th day of the shoot, the boys brought some delicious Punjabi khana for the unit. The menu included butter chicken, sarson da saag and makke di roti along with salads and pickles. “The food was literally wiped off the plates. Everyone ate heartily, especially Maddy, who dug in with gusto,”
After the feast, it was time to shoot, with a pivotal kissing scene between the protagonists scheduled for the evening. “Initially Bipasha had her reservations about the scene as she is close to Maddy’s wife Sarita, but director Ashwini Chowdhury convinced her to do the scene. However, immediately after the kissing scene, Bipasha rushed to her make-up room and did not come out for a long time,” says the source.
Only much later, it emerged that Maddy, in his foodie enthusiasm, may have eaten too many onions for his co-star’s comfort. Thankfully for the unit, the mood on the sets soon swung back to a jovial one, once it turned into a joke. In fact, Bipasha too lightened up when she realised how the unit was actually making light of the situation.
From what we hear, Maddy stayed away from pickles and onions after that incident, despite being tempted several times. Which explains why the two other kissing scenes with Bipasha went off uneventfully. When contacted, Chowdhury refused to comment.
