After giving his mandatory cameo appearance a skip in his last directorial outing Black & White, Subhash Ghai is back at it.
He initially decided not to appear in his new opus Yuvvraaj. But apparently his friends from the film's cast persuaded him to exercise his lucky-mascot status.
In a song that was shot during Diwali, the entire cast comprising Katrina Kaif, Zayed Khan and Anil Kapoor were joined by Subhash Ghai as they all danced to Ahmed Khan's choreography in the song entitled 'Mastam Mastam'.
Zayed is taken aback when confronted with the hush-hush song-and-dance happening. "Now who told you this? It's true we were shooting even on Diwali for this number. It was actually supposed to be just the number accompanying the end-titles. Now it's been changed to a full-on song-and-dance sequence," says Zayed who has had a killing time juggling his dates to accommodate the huge number of days required to shoot Ghai's opus.
"But it's been worth it, especially since Yuvvraaj has turned out so well. The song 'Mastam Mastam' is special because we all got to dance and Mr. Ghai joined us," Zayed said at the end of the grueling 3-day song-shoot on Diwali day before he headed home to spend some time with his son and wife. "And then it was a long cards session at a friend's. I normally lose money every Diwali. I didn't expect it to be any different this year," sighed Zayed.
