Hilarious, slapstick and thoroughly enjoyable, Andaz Apna Apna is a cult classic. The film, starring Salman Khan, Aamir Khan, Raveena Tandon and Karisma Kapoor, was the epitome of 90s friendship. But while there was a lot of comedy, love and bromance in the film, the truth is that none of the stars talked to each other during filming.
In an interview, Raveena, who played the role of Karisma and impersonated Raveena Bajaj, under the direction of Rajkumar Santoshi, said that there was a lot of tension while they were shooting the film. Despite that, she had fun shooting for the film. As things were, Aamir and Salman didn’t talk to each other, and Raveena and Karisma didn’t talk to each other either.
“It was fun because while we were filming, none of us spoke to each other. Sabke jhagade chal rahe de. Aamir and Salman did not talk to each other. Karisma and I weren’t talking and neither were Salman and Rajji (Rajkumar Santoshi). I don’t know how that movie was made. But it shows that we are damn good actors,” Raveena said.
Still, Aamir and Salman tried to build bridges between Raveena and Karisma as they shot for the film’s climax. “The boys tried to bring Karisma and me together. In fact, in the climax, there is a scene where Karishma and I are tied to a pillar. Rajji said, ‘We will not untie you unless you talk to each other’. It was all so funny. I remember when we were shooting scenes we all laughed a lot because the dialogues were so hilarious. Hamne maze bhi kiye aur jhagde bhi kiye.”
More than two decades later, Raveena said she is on good terms with Karisma, Aamir and Salman. Although the film flopped at the time, it remains a fan favorite to this day.
