When Urmila Matondkar and Akshaye Khanna acted as partners in Anees Bazmee’s Deewangee in 2002, their relationship off-screen was in stark contrast to their on-screen portrayal.
Akshaye played the role of a criminal lawyer while Urmila acted as a popular singer who requests Akshaye to defend her childhood friend ( Ajay Devgn) suspected of murdering a music magnate.
The vibe between them was so cold that the two actors made sure they never teamed up again.
But it seems a five-day workshop for director Nikhil Advani’s animated movie, Delhi Safari, was enough to end the nine-year-old cold war.
The film, which is about four animals who travel from Mumbai to Delhi to meet the Prime Minister with a list of complaints, also features voice-acting by Govinda and Boman Irani. TOI
