David Dhawan on why he was miserable on the sets of Rascals

The king of comedy, David Dhawan is ecstatic about his new laugh riot Rascals, starring Sanjay Dutt, Ajay Devgn and Kangna Ranaut. He says he had a blast shooting with the talented Sanjay and Ajay, except for their “food problem”.
Food problem? Calling Dutt a big rascal, David says, “Sanju and Ajay are big pranksters. I was cautious around them, especially if they were together, because they were always conspiring against me! In fact, Sanju made my life miserable on the sets. Everyday during lunch break, I would find a quiet corner to have my food, when Sanju would come and say, ‘You can’t eat this! How can you eat this? Look at your size…you are putting on weight! No rice, no chapati for you!’ He would then order boiled food for me!” says David.
“Sanju would even spy on me!” the director exclaims, saying that whenever he was eating he would get a call from Sanju demanding, ‘Kya kha raha hai tu?’ Dhawan says he actually developed a phobia and would look around to see if somebody was watching every time he ate something on the sets! “So much so, that even when I’m eating at home I am scared Sanju might appear from somewhere and stop me! Even when I visit his place, he serves me diet food,” rues David.
David and Sanjay’s relationship goes back a long time as they’ve known each other for 25 years. David began his career as a film editor and worked on quite a few of More >

Rascals which had been expected by some to come on 26th October will now release on 6th October. It was always likely that film will have to move as Ra.One is due for a 26th October release. Therfore Rascals would have a huge problem getting good theatres and show timings as Ra.One is red hot and every exhibitor wants this film at their theatres with as many shows as possible. Rockstar is also scheduled for this date but that film may be delayed further.
Rascals stars Sanjay Dutt, Ajay Devgn, Kangna Ranaut, Arjun Rampal, Chunky Pandey, Satish Kaushik and others, ‘RASCALS’ is and out and out comedy produced by Sanjay Dutt, Sanjay Ahluwalia and Vinay Choksey and is directed by David Dhawan. The film is presented by Bharat Shah.

Diwali just got bigger. A few months ago, the makers of RA.ONE took the crucial decision of releasing the film during the festival of lights. Now here’s the latest: The producers of RASCALS have also decided to release their film in Diwali. Yes, the David Dhawan-directed film, which stars Sanjay Dutt and Ajay Devgn in the lead, will face the mighty RA.ONE in the festive week. In fact, the producers of RASCALS were unsure whether to clash with a mighty opponent like RA.ONE or arrive in another week. But the 5-day weekend is too tempting to miss and also, two films can easily co-exist during the Diwali week. Perhaps, these two reasons may have prompted the producers of RASCAL to release their film during the rewarding period.
Shah Rukh has an impeccable track record as far as Diwali is concerned. DILWALE DULHANIA LE JAYENGE, KUCH KUCH HOTA HAIN, MOHABBATEIN, VEER-ZAARA, DON and OM SHANTI OM were released in the festive week and each of them proved money spinners at the box-office. Ajay Devgn too has been very lucky as far as Diwali goes. GOLMAAL RETURNS and ALL THE BEST have proven hits, so RASCALS could be a hat-trick. Also, it’s not the first time an SRK starrer is clashing with a David Dhawan film. Diwali 1998 witnessed the release of SRK’s KUCH KUCH HOTA HAI and David Dhawan’s BADE MIYA CHOTE MIYAN and both had emerged big hits then.
