During the shoot of ‘Chale Jaise Hawaayein’, the camera captured Amrita Rao and she was coming towards Zayed. Everyone around him was telling him to be ready. However, when the camera panned towards him, a dancer next to him had fallen down. He got a fit as a result of exhaustion. In such a situation, Zayed didn’t know what to do. He started performing, but after that I realized that he has to dance over this chap. He thought it couldn’t be his introduction. Even after Farah’s displeasure, he called cut.
Farah had thrown slippers on Zayed
Zayed revealed that Farah had become very angry. She abused him and threw slippers at him. He further added that he told Farah she shouldn’t expect her to dance on someone who is dead. After this, she yelled more and said, ‘You can’t say cut on my set, I will say cut’.
Finally, when the members of the unit found out that the poor man was lying down, they rushed to help him. He was saved. After that, they shot again and it went well.
