Rab mi­laye jodi ... ek andha, ek kodi.” Re­plete with such witty dia­logues and ribcrack­ing hu­mour, Bheja Fry (2007) made a place in ev­ery­one’s hearts. As the film, di­rected by Sa­gar Bal­lary, star­ring Ra­jat Kapoor, (far right) Vinay Pathak, (left) Sarika, Milind So­man and

Ran­vir Shorey, (be­low) com­pletes 10 years to­day, we speak to Vinay and Ran­vir about their mem­o­ries from the mak­ing of the film.

While it was a short project, Vinay says that shoot­ing Bheja Fry was noth­ing less than a party for him. What started as a mere con­ver­sa­tion in jest, ended up be­ing one of the best films that he has worked on, says Vinay. “Ev­ery night was a party. I still re­mem­ber that there was this one scene where Ra­jat kept crack­ing up after I said my dia­logue and even­tu­ally Sa­gar had to ex­clude him from the scene,” he says, adding, “Party karte karte humne picture bana dali.”

Ran­vir Shorey, who played Asif Mer­chant in the film, says he never thought the film would be such a big hit. “It was a very small project. And all of us friends were part of it. We had no ex­pec­ta­tions from the film and ev­ery­thing came as a sur­prise. It was amaz­ing,” he says. Talk­ing about shoot­ing, Ran­vir says, “I still re­mem­ber that we would keep laugh­ing and crack­ing up while shoot­ing the film. I fin­ished shoot­ing in 20-25 days as my role as a sup­port­ing ac­tor did not re­quire too many days. But it was so great to have ev­ery­one on the set.”

For his role, Ran­vir was ini­tially meant to look dif­fer­ent. “I was sup­posed to wear pros­thetic make-up. But I was not able to. There was no bud­get and I had to just make do with my face as it is. I was lucky that it worked.”
