Rani Mukerji on filming Tumhi Dekho Naa
In the interview, Rani Mukerji said she wore a red saree in Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna track Tumhi Dekho Naa. "I actually froze. I couldn’t walk. And one of my cousins, who was also AD-ing him (Karan Johar), Ayan (Mukerji), he had to carry me to my car, because I had frozen… If you see the song, in the lip-sync, my lips are frozen. I’m trying to sing it, and it looks sensuous, but it’s not sensuous actually," recalled Rani.
Adding to what Rani said, Karan mentioned that he wanted artificial rain at -14 degrees for the shoot. The filmmaker revealed that there was a rain machine before it could reach the set, it would turn into ice. "We had a health and safety department saying, ‘You’ll kill them'," revealed KJo.
