Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2 has managed to impress the audience and the movie saw a brilliant opening at the box office and it seems there are more successes to come its way and amidst all the praise, the associate director “Rahul Mody” is having sleepless nights because his phone just does not stop ringing.
In this movie, actor Kartik Aaryan, who essays the role of Anshul aka Gogo tells his telephone number while introducing himself to Ruchika aka Chiku (Nusrat Bharucha) and as it happens, Kartik gave away Rahul’s real mobile phone number in the movie.
This has become a constant trouble for Rahul Mody since girls call him to ask about Gogo aka Anshul and talking to a leading daily, Rahul said, “During the shoot, there was a blank space in Kartik’s dialogue for a dummy phone number and he chose to use my number in the scene and this led to viewers calling me and asking about Gogo and Anshul and then I politely introduced myself to them.”
Not only from India, the callers mostly women, are spanned over Dubai and Russia too and “One of the women was still inside the cinema hall when she called and kept insisting that I was Gogo and then she started coaxing me to arrange a conference call with Kartik, which I refused”, he said.
Seems Rahul has become the support of all men who could empathies with Gogo and “The men mostly call up to say they have gone through similar situations”, Kartik said.
Kartik however revealed that it was his plan to trouble Rahul which is why he blabbered his number while shooting and “We were just playing a prank and decided to go ahead with Rahul’s number and when we both were together, he gave me the phone to speak to a few callers and it was hilarious and I can only imagine how he must have handled those callers, but we are happy that the movie has received a great response,” he said.
