Kapil Sharma has earlier said that he played a small part in Sunny Deol’s Gadar and even though the scene he featured in never made it to the final cut, Kapil has a few memories of being on that set. In a recent interaction with veteran actor Mukesh Khanna, the movie’s action director Tinu Verma recalls how he was very annoyed with Kapil on that specific day and threw him off the set.
Tinu said that they were filming with a big crowd and everybody was told to run towards the train. As soon as he called action, the crowd began running towards the train yet there was one boy who was running in the other way, and that by was Kapil. Tinu called the boy and asked him to follow instructions. “Teri vajah se one more hua hai shot (We are doing one more take because of you,)” Tinu recalled.
Tinu said that when they began rolling again, his whole focus was on that boy. Yet again kapil ran the other way. Tinu said, “Maine camera chhoda aur main uss bade ke paas bhaaga. Aur jaise hi pakda, phaaad (makes a slapping gesture), ek kaan ke neeche diye aur maine bola isko bahar nikaalo. (I put the camera down and ran towards him. The moment I caught him, I slapped him.) Throw him out off the set.”
When Sunny Deol showed up on Kapil’s show previously, Kapil recalled this incident and said that he ran the other way since he wanted to stand out. He was sure that he would be lost in the sea of people and this was the only way he could figure out to stand out from the crowd. Sunny was very shocked to discover that Kapil was a part of his movie.
