It might some unbelievable. But it’s true. The male leads of Andaz Apna Apna – Salman & Aamir Khan, weren’t talking to each other during the shoot of the film. Raveena Tandon who was one of the female lead, during her interaction with HT, shared some inside details from the past.
“It was fun as while we were shooting, none of us were speaking to each other. Sabke jhagade chal rahe the. Aamir and Salman weren’t talking to each other, Karisma and I weren’t talking and neither were Salman and Rajji. I don’t know how that film got made. But, it shows we are damn good actors (laughs).”
“The boys tried to bring Karisma and me together. In fact, in the climax, there’s a scene where Karisma and I are tied to a pillar. Rajji said, ‘We won’t untie you, unless you talk to one another’. It was all so funny. I remember, while shooting (the) scenes, we would all genuinely laugh a lot as the dialogues were so hilarious. Hamne maze bhi kiye aur jhagde bhi kiye.”
Raveena added that today she and Salman have an equation that is even better than that with Aamir Khan.
Talking about Andaz Apna Apna, it is one cult movie & no matter how many times you watch it, the film will manage to tickle your funny bone every single time. A 1994 flick it was a box office failure at the time of its release.
Speaking about its failure, Raveena shared that people love the film even today & can’t get enough of it but added that it deserved the same success & love back then it was released. According to her, the film was a job ahead of its time, with humor that got recognition much later.
These were her words,
“Back then when it was released, it was not a huge success. During the ’90s, the slapstick comedies with double meaning dialogues worked at the box office, not a straight, clean comedy like AAA.”
