It was a known fact on the sets of director Shashant A Shah’s next film Bajatey Raho that punctuality is very important for him. But it was hard to get Tusshar, Vinay Pathak and Ranvir Shorey to wake up on winter mornings in Delhi and head off to shoot leaving their cosy warm beds. So on the day when Shashant was to shoot with actresses Maryam Zakaria and Scarlett Wilson, the director was taken aback to see the three boys in their full avatar on the sets.
“I was completely shocked to see them, in their shooting avatar all ready to shoot in time on a day they didn’t have to shoot because I was shooting a song that day,” says Shashant laughing. But later Shashant realised that the boy gang was there on a non-shooting day because of the two beautiful damsels Maryam and Scarlett.
Tusshar, Vinay and Ranvir spent the whole day and night in their get-ups without shooting, just to watch the two actresses dance. “I actually thought that the next time I want to call the guys on time, I will tell them that Maryam and Scarlett are coming to shoot the song again,” quips Shashant.
Bajatey Raho takes us through a journey where all hell has broken loose and it’s only the crooks left to rule the roost. Now the only way left to fight Evil is con against a con. When Sabbarwahl (Ravi Kishan) is on a roll committing a series of frauds, all in the garb of a successful business entrepreneur, little does he know that one of his misdoings has created a huge impact on the lives of 4 poor sods: Mrs. Baweja (Dolly Ahluwalia), Sukhi (Tusshar), Mintoo Hasan (Vinay Pathak) and Ballu (Ranvir Shorey). This is turn has only resulted into an enormous wave of need for vengeance. And when Mrs. Baweja decides to take things in her hand, there is no more stopping the good hearted underdog who have to become a ‘little BAD’ to fight the ‘very BAD’. Because at the end of it all Happy Ending it is… but all you will want to say is ‘Bajatey Raho’!
