Simi Garewal’s sequence from Short Kut gets chopped off

Not many may be aware, but the elegant lady-in-white, Simi Garewal, had shot for Anil Kapoor‘s home production Short Kut- The Con Is On. Simi played herself in the film and was part of a sequence where she had Arshad Warsi as the special guest on her famous talk-show ‘Rendezvous with Simi Garewal’. Arshad, who plays a struggling actor, ends up talking a whole lot of nonsense in the show thus making it a hilarious scene.

However, disappointing as it may sound, in the final edit, the scene was removed to keep the film’s length under check. The running time of Short Kut- The Con Is On is 130 minutes, the ideal length of a crisp comedy, and the makers didn’t feel like stretching it any longer.

If the scene had been retained, cine-goers would have got the opportunity to see Simi on the big screen after over two decades. She was last seen in her directorial debut Rukhsat (1986) co-starring Mithun Chakraborty and Anuradha Patel.
