When the hero and the heroine of yesteryear films kissed, two flowers artfully concealed their intimate moment. Looks like in the present times, tomatoes have replaced the roses. And who’d know that better than Richa Chadda and her co-star Nikhil Dwivedi!
Buzz is that the two actors can barely stand each other’s company. And given that Richa and Nikhil had to shoot for an intimate scene in their upcoming film Tamanchey, the film’s makers decided to invest in some tomatoes. Our source says, “Directed by Bharat Ratan, the film is based on the underworld love story of Abu Salem and Monica Bedi and has Nikhil and Richa playing lovers. And during a lovemaking scene, the actress simply refused to let Nikhil get too cozy with her.
After several takes that couldn’t capture the essence, the filmmaker had to find another way. In the end, tomatoes were bought in to make the scene as romantic as possible without the actors getting too close to each other!” A crewmember states that Richa initially had apprehensions about shooting the sequence.

Richa Chadda was shooting a chase scene when she injured herself on the sets of her next, leading to the shoot coming to an abrupt halt

It seems quite a lot of Bollywood actors lately have become victims of injuries sustained on the sets. The latest actor to join the bandwagon is Richa Chadda.
The Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye! girl, while shooting a stunt scene for her upcoming film Tamanchey, met with an accident recently on the sets. Richa has been advised bed rest for a month and is currently recuperating at home, causing a delay in the film’s shoot schedule.
We learnt that the starlet is scheduled to undergo a knee surgery tomorrow. A source from the crew reveals, “On the first day of the third schedule, Richa was shooting a chase scene when she suddenly slipped and injured her knee.
She took some painkillers and finished the shoot for the day. It was only when she reached home that she realised it was really bad.” The source adds, “Since she needed complete bed rest, she has gone to Delhi to be taken care of by her family.
Richa is in a lot of pain but her spirits are still high. She is catching up with all her school and college friends who have been giving her loads of books to read and films to watch.”
The shoot is apparently on hold due to the mishap. On whether it has caused a delay, director Bharat Ratan says, “We had to stop the shoot but we are utilising the time to edit the portions we shot earlier.”
