  • On the sets of Khoya Khoya Chand in 2007

“This picture was shot on the sets of director Sudhir Mishra’s Khoya Khoya Chand (2007). For the climax the director wanted to recreate a storm. One of the Assistant Directors would call ‘action’ by giving a clap and immediately two gigantic fans would start to roar setting off dry leaves stacked in gunny bags places in front of the fans and in no time the set was overcome with a simulated storm. The AD who was giving the claps would not be able to get out of the way in time. All he had to shield himself from the storm was his clapboard.”
