Pranutan revealed to India Today that her dad Mohnish Bahl warned her that Bollywood is an uncertain place. "I used to believe that coming from a film family, I would easily bag at least a couple of projects, but dad was quick to point out that my background was an advantage only till I arrived on the set. The minute I faced the camera for the first shot, it didn't matter whose daughter or granddaughter I was," she said.
Raju Srivastava's character Gajodhar bhaiya became a household name. The stand-up comic was also famous for his style of dialogue delivery that left everyone in splits.
Richa Chadha and Ali Fazal are soon to be a wedded couple with their wedding finally taking place this month. The couple will kick start their wedding celebrations in Delhi on 30th September and conclude in Mumbai on 7th October.
How was Gajodhar born? What inspired Srivastava to take this name and use for comic relief and device? Back in 2013, while giving an interview to the AIB Podcast, the actor-comedian had given out all the details.
