Los Angeles: Filmmaker Sajid Khan helped model-turned-actress Tamannaah Bhatia shoot a scene for his upcoming next film `Humshakals`

Tamannaah plays a VJ (Video Jockey) in `Humshakals` and she got stuck enacting a scene that required her to address a huge crowd. She wasn`t confident doing it in front of a huge crowd, so Sajid helped her get the correct body posture and diction to play the perfect host.

"Tamannaah was a little scared and didn’t know how to execute the scene and make it look real on screen. So I showed her how to do it in terms of holding the mike and getting the right diction. I discovered the phrase ‘host and dost’ when I used to host shows earlier,” Sajid, who hosted TV talk show "Sajid`s Superstars", said in a statement.

“Having been a host, I know how difficult it is to keep the audience entertained. In a way, it helped me impart knowledge to her and she picked it well. When you watch the scene, you will feel like you’re watching a professional host. I enacted the scene in front of her and she copied me exactly,” added the 42-year-old.

"Humshakals" stars Saif Ali Khan, Riteish Deshmukh, Ram Kapoor and Bipasha Basu among others. It will come out June 20.
