Mallika Shrewat's humour on the sets of Maan Gaye Mughal-e-Azam

Mallika Sherawat seems to be enjoying working in director Sanjay Chhel’s film Maan Gaye Mughal-E-Azam .

On the movie’s shooting sets, Mallika shares an incredibly good rapport with her co-stars Rahul Bose , Paresh Rawal and Kay Kay Menon .

There is always some good-humoured banter going on between Mallika and Bose on the sets. The two have been good friends since they worked together in Pyar Ke Side Effects . Mallika often teases Rahul of being “an art-house actor” and tells him that he got his first hit film (PKSE) with her. Playing to Mallika’s tune, Rahul often jokingly admits that he is just a junior in front of her.

With Paresh Rawal, Mallika grooves in very well. Since Paresh plays an actor enacting emperor Akbar and Mallika plays an actress enacting Anarkarli in the film, she would often address Paresh as “Badshah-e-Alam” on the sets.

Kay Kay Menon, who used to be somewhat reclusive on the sets, was also not spared of Mallika’s antics. She would deliberately flirt with him to make him conscious.

Director Sanjay Chhel admits that during the shooting of the film, whenever things got tense, Mallika would crack a joke or show a few Anarkali dance steps to lighten up everyone’s mood.

Chhel also recalls a funny incident that happened when he and Paresh Rawal were discussing the weather in Gujarat.

“Me and Pareshbhai were one day talking about how hot the whether is in Gujarat. We were speaking in Gujarati. And Mallika who was sitting nearby picked up a few words and thought that we were talking about how hot she is. But when we told her what we were actually discussing, she had a hearty laugh,” Chhel says.

Playing prank on sets is always good.It makes fell better on sets during suitings and for your kind information PKSE wasn't a hit one.
