When Mugdha missed her Man Friday...
Mugdha Godse is one perfectionist. And it is this perfection that percolates to even spot boy level. At the Bangkok shoot of Krishan Choudhry and Vipin Jain’s Will You Marry Me, directed by Aditya V Datt, the actor changed six spot boys in one single day before the unit got one who made sense to Mugdha. Says a source from the Ikkon Films unit, “we got all actors spot boy locally as it would bring down shoot costs and we don’t have fly them down. But what happened was that Mugdha seemed to be getting guys who could not understand English. It was funny but she got boys who spoke Thai! And when we did manage to send the right boy, he was just too lazy.”
Grins Mugdha, “at that time, it was irritating as I just could not make the boy understand what I wanted. But looking back now, I did have a hearty laugh. I realized why Robinson Crusoe cherished his Man Friday that day!”
Incidentally, Mugdha ended up having eight spot boys do her work for eight days, since each was a chapter in his own right. Whoever said it is easy to please a heroine!
