Actor Samir Soni is excited about Fashion. And as much as he is excited about the carefully etched character Rahul Arora that he is essaying, he is happy that he got an opportunity to work with director Madhur Bhandarkar.
Normally an actor who is choosy about his words, Samir beams when asked about Madhur. "I have never met a director who is so hassle free and down to earth, who knows what he wants and yet is always open to suggestions. And I have never seen Madhur stressed or shout on the set.
On the contrary he's constantly making everyone laugh, his way of showing his delight after a good performance is by giving you a big hug and applauding with his pet phrase "jalwa", now part of the title track. He never says pack up.
He just says Vande Mataram. That is his sign off statement. Although he's playing it down, but we've already started teasing him about National Award No. Four."
Is Mr Bhandarkar reading this one!
