November 29, 2005 20:31 IST
Ajay Devgan has had a bad year, with almost five flops. Hopefully, Apaharan will change that. After all, Devgan and director Prakash Jha have created a hit product in the past -- remember Gangaajal?

With the release date just around the corner, a quiz on Apaharan seems just about right.

1. Other than Apaharan, what are the other two movies Prakash Jha has worked with Ajay Devgan on?
a. Gangaajal and Blackmail
b. Gangaajal and Dil Kya Kare
c. Gangaajal and Insaan

2. Who is the item girl in Apaharan?

b. Cleo Isaac
c. Lara Dutta

Wrong!
The correct answer is A.
Did you know? After Satara, some scenes were also shot at Mikanos in Mumbai. Although Mrinalini Sharma did the item number, it was first given to Cleo Isaac, who couldn't do it for some reason. This song was Aaoji babu, and it depicts the transformation of Ajay's character from good to bad. As for Sharma, you may have seen her in advertisements for Sunsilk shampoo, Motorola, and Parker Pens (with Amitabh Bachchan) before. She has also been on the ramp for designers like J J Vallaya, Ravi Bajaj and Suneet Verma.

Did you know? Bipasha arrived for the first day's shoot a little late. She was just 15 minutes late, but Prakash Jha is a disciplined director with his own way of treating latecomers. When Bipasha reached, she was welcomed with loud dholaks and crewmembers dancing in front of her car, garlands in hand. She was thoroughly embarrassed but, sportingly, got out and began dancing with everyone else, much to the amusement of Jha and Devgan.

Did you know? In one scene, Devgan is shown celebrating with his friend Ayub Khan. Khan is supposed to forcibly give Devgan some beer but, as the scene took many retakes, Devgan ended up finishing a bottle. Later, he decided that, instead of gulping the drink, he would spit the beer out. On one take, however, Jha took so long to yell Cut that Devgan was forced to spit the beer out quickly. Some of it fell promptly on Bipasha's face. Apparently, she whacked Ajay, but everyone was amused.
