5 Candid Stories From Behind The Scenes Of Bollywood That You Did Not Know

Each and every Bollywood fan knows about the story of his/her favourite artist but do they know about the story from the sets of the film or the show the actor works in?

Many times it is the case that whatever happens on the sets stays on the sets, but here are some interesting and surprising stories from the sets of different Bollywood movies which should be known to every Bollywood fan.

Here are some stories from the sets of the movies:

1. Priyanka Chopra is a different person while shooting and while she is at home. Chopra does not like to see her work when it is being aired on the TV, she always changes the channels. She only sees the work when the tests shots are going on the camera on the sets.

2. Shahrukh Khan has a different take on the romance angle of every love story. We know that he is referred to as the king of romance. But he firmly believes that the purpose of the love story is to empower the woman’s emotions. All of his love stories have successfully worked because he has empowered the emotions of a woman not because of his Raj or Rahul roles.

3. Ranbir Kapoor while filming for Imtiaz Ali’s ‘Rockstar’ thought that this is a complete film and nothing more is required. But the director had a different opinion on this and he thinks that a lot would have been done with the film but they did not do it.

4. Actress Alia Bhatt had auditioned for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Black’, at that time she was just 11 years old. She has spent a lot of time with the director and the duo was supposed to do a project also together but things did not work out then.

5. Varun Dhawan’s recent film ‘October’ has earned him lots of praise because of his acting. The actor did not know about the ending of the film and he was very angry with Shoojit and Juhi. At the end, when Dhawan started crying in the movie, it brought out his anger as well.


Even before Deepika Padukone was not an actress she was offered to do the lead role of ‘Heer’ in Rockstar. Apparently, Padukone did not say yes for the movie at that time. What goes around comes around, Ali once again approached her even before ‘Om Shanti Om’ and she had ‘Love Aaj Kal’ lined up.
