All eyes were on Riteish Deshmukh as he flew down to Thailand, Krabi Island, only to land on the sets of Sajid Nadiadwala’s HOUSEFULL 2 to shoot for a group song titled ‘Humko Tumse Pyaar Hai’ alongside co-actors Akshay Kumar, John Abraham and Shreyas Talpade.
Fatigued with the marriage arrangements in his family – Riteish turned up with dark circles and puffed eyes that couldn’t be camouflaged with make-up. Quick thinking on director Sajid Khan’s part – Riteish was asked to wear glares in the song.
Says a source, ”Riteish was busy with his wedding and later with his brother Dheeraj’s. He still managed to fit the song shoot in between his hectic schedule but his dark circles were quite evident about his tiredness. Sajid suggested him to sport glares in the song and he readily agreed – it gives ‘Humko Tumse Pyaar Hai’a quirky twist.”
Confirms director Sajid Khan, ”The glares Riteish is wearing in the song are cool 3-D glasses. We all had a good laugh as he was the only one in the group to wear a glass.”
Directed by Sajid Khan, the film has a big starcast including Akshay Kumar, John Abraham, Riteish Deshmukh, Shreyas Talpade, Asin, Zarine Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez, Shazahn Padamsee, Rishi Kapoor, Randhir Kapoor and Mithun Chakraborty. Sajid Nadiadwala and Eros International’s HOUSEFULL 2 is all set to release on April 2012.
