Mumbai, Feb 20: Bollywood actor R. Madhavan had kissed Vidya Balan in the film Guru, but when he had to kiss co-star Bipasha Basu on the Greek island of Mykonos for the film Jodi Breakers, eating onions just before the scene nearly spoiled it.
According to a media report, all 75 people in the unit who had been working for 12-13 days in Greece were yearning for Indian food.
Some Punjabi boys who were regulars on the set, offered to treat them to Punjabi ghar ka khana.
According to the report, on the 14th day of the shoot, the boys brought Butter Chicken, Sarson da Saag and Makke di Roti along with salads, onions and pickles.
"The food was literally wiped off the plates.Everyone ate heartily, especially Maddy, who dug in with gusto,"says the source.
After the feast, it was time to shoot, with a kissing scene scheduled for the evening.
"Initially Bipasha had her reservations about the scene as she is close to Maddy's wife Sarita,but director Ashwini Chowdhury convinced her to do the scene.However immediately after the kissing scene,Bipasha rushed to her make-up room and did not come out for the longest time,"recalls the source.
It was only much later it emerged that Maddy, in his foodie enthusiasm, may have eaten one too many onions for his co-star's comfort.
Thankfully for the unit, the mood on the sets soon swung back to a jovial one, once it turned into a joke.
In fact,Bipasha too lightened up when she realised how the unit was actually making light of the situation.
Since then, Madhavan had been staying away from pickles and onions despite being tempted several times.
The two other kissing scenes with Bipasha went off uneventfully.
