Did You Know?

It was a joke on set that Habib Faisal's favorite on the set was Pradeep, who was playing Banwra, an accompanist in Chand Baby's entourage. Whenever he was in frame with Arjun, Parineeti or Gauahar, Habib would first brief him, and then the rest. Also on the dinner table, Habib would be constantly talking about Banwra. Arjun would jokingly act very upset about this.See more »
