Veteran actor Shatrughan Sinha recollects the moment when he dozed off during the script narration of Subhash Ghai’s Kalicharan. The film released in 1976 and turned out to be a breakthrough role for Sinha as well as his co-star Reena Roy.
“A very good friend of mine — family friend and wife’s brother — Subhash Ghai, who was a newcomer back then, narrated the script of Kalicharan to me. But in the middle of the narration, I dozed off! Although it happened, the complete truth is that the script narration took place at about 3 to 4 am and I had just returned after completing three to four movie shifts. By the time I reached home, it was already 2 am. Still, I immediately freshened up and met him at 4 am sharp. I was so tired that I partially dozed off during the narration,” Sinha recalled.
“But during the shooting of this movie, I gave my full support to Subhash Ghai and apart from this film I did three more with him,” the actor added.
