Arjun Rampal’s unique birthday on sets of Heroine

Arjun Rampal who turned a year older on 26/11 isn't quite sure whether director Madhur Bhandarkar planned it. But when he reached the set for the first day of shooting for Heroine, Arjun was told that it's his character's birthday and that he would be doing a cake-cutting sequence with his co-star Kareena Kapoor.

According to a source, Arjun plays an on-the-rise actor who latches on to the top actress of the day. Any resemblance to the equation that Dharmendra shared with Meena Kumari when they did films like Phool Aur Patthar, Kajal, Purnima, Bharaon Ki Manzil Chandan Ka Palna and Majhli Didi together is purely coincidental.

The birthday sequence that Bhandarkar shot for Arjun's character fell on Arjun's birthday. Filmy folklore has it that Meena Kumari celebrated Dharmendra's birthday on the sets of one of their films together and even insisted that they incorporate the celebration in the film that they were shooting together.

Laughed Arjun, "I don't know if Madhur planned it that way. But we ended up shooting my character's birthday cake-cutting scene on my birthday on Saturday. Normally you've a star cutting a cake on his birthday on the sets. But doing it on camera in character is, I think slightly unusual."

Arjun is all praise for his Heroine co-star Kareena.

"She looked stunning on the shooting today," the actor said appreciatively as he headed home for a birthday party after the first day's shooting of Bhandarkar's film.

Said Arjun, "Nothing major. Just a small get-together for close friends. The past year has been pretty eventful. I hope the coming year too remains the same way."

Recently, Arjun turned a TV host for a show called Love 2 Hate U where we hear, he is trying to convince his close friends from the film industry including Karan Johar, Hrithik Roshan and Shah Rukh Khan to come face-to-face with the one 'fan' who purports to hate them the most.

Apparently, the three super-celebrities have expressed misgivings to Arjun about confronting their pet hate.

Says Arjun, "I am sure they all would agree to come on my show. I recorded an episode with Farah Khan and Farhan Akhtar recently. By the end of the show, their supposed haters ended up loving their objects of proclaimed detestation."

Arjun warns he won't be taking the Bollywood route alone on his show. "I want to invite cricketers, politicians and celebrities from every walk of life. When I wrap up my season of the show, I want to feel I've done something beyond just an ordinary chat show."
