Jab log light up kar rahe hote the main wahi kapde pehenke , hospital ke, usi bed pe so jata he. Kyunki mujhe pata tha ki poori raat shoot karna hein. Jab shot ready ho jata tha ye log utha dete the…bimaar toh lagna hi tha. Logon ko lagta tha ki waah character hi hein ye (At night, I would drive to Film city. While Munna Bhai’s crew was lighting the location, I would wear the hospital patient uniform and sleep on one of the fake hospital beds that were part of the furniture sets, because I knew we had to shooting all night. People would think he’s really a character actor).
