Only Kajol can make a picture look so good, in terms of mood and expression. She had to move her hand to chuck the coffee and splash her feet at the same time. It's the most energetic picture in the calendar.
We did this about 50 times to get it right. Sometimes, the coffee would not come out right, and cover her eyes or face. I wanted a good swirl of coffee too. So we had to do a lot of trial and error for this picture, but it worked out well. We got this perfect picture. It looks almost unreal.
I asked her to wear blue jeans and a vest. But at the last moment, she wore a white tee-shirt, with sleeves. It was not what was in my mind, I wanted a singlet. The makeup started at 8 am. At 10 am, we waited for the shops to open. Then my wife Manisha bought 20 white T-shirts. She chose this one.
We tried two concepts with her. I don't want to reveal the other one now, because I will use it later.
