Anyone who has seen the trailer of Piku would agree with me that the trioka of Deepika Padukone, Amitabh Bachchan and Irrfan Khan look adorable together. But did you that the captain of the ship, director Shoojit Sircar, had a hard time to get things sorted between Deepika and Irrfan?
Apparently Deepika and Irrfan started shouting at each other while discussing a scene. As the fight went out of control and the two actors fumed with anger, Shoojit and his crew gathered around to settle the differences. But both the actors stormed off the sets to their respective vanity vans. But when Deepika and Irrfan came face to face, they broke into a fit of laughter.
Recalling the prank, a source present in the unit said, “Both Irrfan and Deepika were sitting and discussing an important sequence, when all of a sudden both the actors started yelling at each other.
Shoojit and others tried to reason with them, but that didn’t work. Both Deepika and Irrfan stormed off and retreated into their respective vanity vans. When they were called for the scene, everyone on the sets were tensed. And seeing the worried faces, the lead pair just burst out laughing. That’s when Shoojit and crew realised that it was a well organised prank by Deepika and Irrfan.”
