Why Dino added vodka to Celina's coffee
By Subhash K. Jha, Indo-Asian News Service
Mumbai, May 22 (IANS) Actor Dino Morea admits to playing pranks on Celina Jaitley - his co-star in "Tom Dick & Harry" - like pouring vodka into her coffee and tying her down to a chair!
"I constantly played pranks on her. Once I put vodka into her coffee on the sets. But Celina took it well - no not the joke, the vodka. I mean she could really hold her drink," Dino told IANS.
"Another time Celina was wearing this elaborate dress with lots of frills. I tied her dress to the chair. When she got up, the chair came with her," he added.
"Celina is a real fun girl. In fact, I have a great time with all my co-stars... I mean female. If there was an award for Mr. Congeniality, I'd win pants down."
Talking about his other female co-star - Kim Sharma - in the film, he said: "Kim plays a fisherwoman. If we really had women like her selling fish, we'd become a nation of fish-eaters, I tell you."
If his rapport with Celina and Kim was terrific, Dino's bonding with the other male leads - Anuj Sawhney and Jimmy Shergill - was equally good. "All three of us are like bum chums on screen, no pun intended."
Asked about the falling fortunes of comedy, Dino said: "Honestly, we aren't bothered with the fate of 'Pyaare Mohan'. We genuinely believe ours is a far better film.
"And why do you say comedies don't work? Didn't 'Kya Kool Hain Hum' and 'Malaamal Weekly' work? 'Tom Dick & Harry' is my first comedy. And if I had so much fun working in it, audiences better have fun watching it."
He added: "And the music video 'Jhoom' is a rage. This is my second chartbuster with Himesh Reshammiya after 'Jhalak dikhlaja' in 'Aksar'. Since Himesh is such a lucky mascot, I am sure his magic will work for us."
