Koffee With Karan episode last week was all sorts of fun because, well it had two live wires from the industry: Ranveer Singh and Akshay Kumar lightening up the couch. Ranveer candidly revealed about his first meeting with Akki and said that he was thrown out by Raveena Tandon because he was just an inquisitive kid lurking around the sets. Raveena was asked about this at a press conference held during an event she attended and here’s her version of the story:
She said, “He’s a very very naughty boy, I must say. And in fact, it’s very sweet of him to remember but he keeps pulling my leg ‘mujhe toh set se nikal diya gaya tha’. But that was not the thing, it was very sensual song and it was a rain song and it had some very sensual moves and I myself even with my children I feel there is a right age to expose them as it was not appropriate for children to be there that time for scenes to be shot like that. I would do that to my child also. Take them to an appropriate set that is watchable for children. So I was feeling uncomfortable as a grown up that yeh bachcha bechara mujhe dekh raha hai doing all these sensual moves toh kya lag rha hoga. So I requested the producer, I said let the parents be there but as children, they’ll be scandalised. So that was the intention. All of you know I love kids so there’s nothing like that. I would be the last person to be rude to a child. But I always feel there are things that are age appropriate.”
Little did she know that our Baba was not so much of a baby even back then and he was quite star struck by the actress’s beauty and the whole filmy atmosphere on the sets! He even shared a pic with Akki from the sets and recalled how the actor was in love with Ranveer’s Avante Garde haircut even back then!
