“I gate-crashed Ranveer’s wedding with an invitation”: Kubbra Sait in the latest episode of Filmfare Spotlight
Pandemic induced lockdown has us all binging OTT shows at a speed and intensity like never before, enjoying the new narratives, bold stories and some brilliant performances by finest actors. To further celebrate the love for streaming shows, Filmfare recently launched a new digital show featuring the leading stars of streaming shows, Filmfare Spotlight. In the latest episode of the show, Filmfare Digital Editor, Rahul Gangwani is seen in a candid conversation with Sacred Games fame Kubbra Sait.
The bold and versatile star looks back fondly at her journey from Sacred Games to Jaawani Jaanemaan and shares some of the precious memories from the sets of Sacred Games. She states one such instance where Nawazuddin Siddiqui didn’t recognise her saying, “I remember once I had not worn my wig and my hair was big, and with my curls and I went and sat next to him and he didn’t recognise me. He looked away, went away and went back to looking on his phone, and 5 mins later I asked, ‘Do you want to say hi to me?’ And he was like, ‘Arre aap hai.’ And I went like,’Haan mai hu’. And then he says ‘Nai wo aapka Taam Jhaam nai tha (referring to her wig) so didn’t realise it was you.”
Raving about Ranveer Singh she shares a funny story with him saying, “I met him many eons ago when I was hosting a show in a crowd of 5000 people. You don’t imagine to be remembered by a superstar of that order when you are hosting a show, but he remembered me. Then when Sacred Games released he actually texted me and I lost my plot. He told me like Kya Boss you are a daredevil. And you know what I told him in return, ‘Ya, don’t forget to invite me to your wedding.’ So that’s how I think I earned myself an invite and he was very generous and kind. I would like to say, I gate crashed his wedding with an invitation.”
