Bangalore, March 29, 2017:Actors Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan – starrer romantic comedy film ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’ continues to dominate at the worldwide box office. The movie has already made a business of over 150 cr gross and features key scenes and songs filmed in Singapore. Here are some of the interesting anecdotes from Alia, Varun and the director, Shashank.
How Varun ditched Alia in Singapore
Singapore is known for its diverse cuisine & the Badrinath ki Dulhania team got to sample all the myriad flavours that the city is so famous for. The one place that they all loved was Alia Bhatt’s recommendation – House on Dempsey Hill. This warm, homely restaurant became a fast favourite among the team members; especially the Watermelon Coolers, which were a hit with Varun Dhawan.
The team also let us in on a secret – while Alia would catch up on her beauty sleep, after a hectic schedule, Varun & Shashank would secretly make a trip to the restaurant & soak in the tranquil bliss of the Dempsey Hill neighbourhood!
The ride that ‘Transformed’ Varun & Alia
There are some experiences that can never be forgotten, like your first rollercoaster ride, for example. Actor Alia Bhatt will vouch for this one as her experienced the adrenaline rush of a rollercoaster for the first time during the shooting of Badrinath ki Dulhania in Singapore, where she rode this in Universal Studios. The bubbly actor now describes this as the best part of her trip!
Ask her co-star in the movie, Varun Dhawan about his experience & his vote goes to the Transformers ride, which he describes as, “Cutting-edge action & simply brilliant!” The team took the ride 5 times, need we say more?
Varun shops with Alia’s Sister in Singapore
Shopping is a must when you’re in Singapore. So can Varun Dhawan & Alia Bhatt be any far behind? The actors who were shooting in the city during Badrinath ki Dulhania ensured that retail therapy was a part of their schedule. While Alia indulged herself at the swanky ION Orchard Mall on Orchard Road, Varun went along with her sister, Shaheen, to pick up stuff for his house.
But do you know who shopped the most during this time? It’s none other than the Director himself! Shashank Khaitan turned into a shopaholic of sorts & his indulgence was shoes, particularly sneakers!
