On a similar note playing Punjabi kudi Mona with aplomb, Priyal was required to really get into the skin of the character and be seen cooking and relishing a piping hot plate of anda bhurji.
While the director relieved her of the agony of devouring the dish by throwing in a similar-looking vegetarian substitute, there was no escaping the act of breaking an egg and cooking the bhurji on a tawa(pan).
So there she was poor Priyal, pretending to relish the aroma of freshly cooked eggs while she was practically on the verge of fainting out of nausea.
When contacted, Priyal asserted, "It was horrible! As if smelling eggs wasn't bad enough, a little bit of the egg batter stuck to my hair. I shampooed my hair twice that day with an extra dose of conditioner!"
May be Priyal couldn't recollect that Shampoos too have a certain percentage of eggs in it.
