When Priyanka was kissed by Bond
Mumbai: India’s favourite storyteller, Ruskin Bond, who will soon be receiving life time achievement award for writing, can’t stop gushing about his celluloid adventure – a guest appearance in Vishal Bhardwaj’s thrilling black comedy ‘Saat Khoon Maaf’ (2011).
Talking to a daily about his brush with cinema, Bond recounted his acting skills in a lighter vein, “In one scene, I had to kiss Priyanka (Chopra) on the cheek in a fatherly fashion. In the first take I knocked off her glasses, after 12 takes the director asked me if I was doing it deliberately. I don’t think I created an impression, as you see I haven’t got any more acting offers since then,” he said.
