Shoe woes for Ashita Dhawan

Rajan Shahi sure has a big heart and knows how to treat his actors well. Like in the case of Ashita Dhawan. Read to know more...


Ever hear of a producer buying shoes for a TV actor? No, well then we are sure this one’s a first. Recently due to a mishap that occurred on the sets of Bidaai, the producer Rajan Shahi got a guy from the production house to go and pick up a pair of shoes for actor Ashita Dhawan.

Ashita Dhawan, who plays Malti in Rajan Shahi’s Sapna Babul Ka Bidaai, had a mishap wherein the actor’s personal shoes were taken by the makeup man and given to a junior artist. When Rajan Shahi learnt of this, he was furious and sent a person from to Bandra to buy shoes for Ashita. Recollecting the incident Ashita says, “I keep a pair of shoes on the sets as I have a problem with hygiene, when it comes to my feet. I noticed a junior artist wearing my shoes and was quite upset. Although I did not complain to anyone, all the people on the sets realized that I was frustrated. Rajanji realized that I was upset and he fired the makeup artist for making such an error. He actually sent the production guy all the way from Mira road to Bandra to purchase a new pair of shoes for me.”

Speaking about the incident, Rajan Shahi says, “I am very disciplined when it comes to my work and I expect my unit to be the same. There should be a give and take on the sets. If we expect the actors to deliver, then the production house needs to make sure that they are taken care of well. When I realized that a guy from the production house by mistake gave Ashita's shoes to someone, I got very angry. I immediately asked a fellow from my unit to get a new pair of sandals and I gave it back to her. Ashita was quite embarrassed due to the whole incident. I know it’s a very small gesture, but I wanted to put across a bigger point that there needs to be decorum and discipline followed on the sets and I am very particular about it.”

Well, in Ashita’s words, jhooth to hum bolte nahi, lekin aaj tak humne Rajanji jaise aadmi nahi dekhe jo actors ka itna dhyaan rakhte hain!!!
