Bollywood actor Neil Nitin Mukesh was hit with a broom by none other than director Pradeep Sarkar on the sets of his forthcoming film Lafangey Parindey.
According to a source, the scene required actress Deepika Padukone to first beat Neil and his friends with a broom and then throw a pail of water on them. But Pradeep wasn't happy with her performance and decided to demonstrate the scene himself.
"He insisted that Deepika was not doing the scene correctly. So he picked up a jhaadu (broom) and hit Neil on his bums. He stood holding his bums while Deepika and the whole unit burst into laughter," said the source from the sets.
Yash Raj Films' Lafangey Parindey, releasing Aug 20, is the story of a group of youngsters living in the back streets of Mumbai. It will see Neil playing a boxer who fights blindfolded, while Deepika will be seen as a visually challenged girl who can dance on skates.
