There have been stories about how cast and crew members are intimidated by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. With such stories about SLB being a taskmaster doing the rounds, can anyone imagine of letting themselves loose in front of the director? Well, there is one actor who has actually ragged the filmmaker! The actor being Sharmin Segal, who is all set to make her debut with SLB’s production venture Malaal. Sharmin who is Sanjay’s niece, surprisingly ragged her mama, the uncle dearest.
Speaking about the same exclusively to in.com, Sharmin says, “When I was young I used to annoy him with questions like ‘Mere liye maami kab leke aaoge? (When will you get me, my aunty).” However, she stopping irritating him with the marriage questions when she grew up and realized that her uncle is the esteemed filmmaker of India and definitely deserves respect. Sharmin remembers how her mama dearest would pamper her with gifts. “He gifted me an expensive Louis Vuitton. It was my first ever designer bag. When I was a kid he used to take me to adventure parks. He has always pampered me.”

Sharmin remembers visiting the sets of SLB’s movies. She was very young when she went on the sets of Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. She was four years old when she visited the sets of Devdas. She was also on the sets of Black where Ranbir Kapoor was working as an assistant director. “I and my younger sister would hide his phone and then make him dance to give it back to him,” laughs Sharmin as she remembers the good old days.
Likewise, she bonded well with Sonam who too was assisting Sanjay on the sets of Amitabh Bachchan and Rani Mukerji starrer. She says, “The office (Bhansali’s) was in the basement of the building while we lived on the third floor. I used to sit on the stairs of the building and would ask someone or the other to carry me upstairs. Sonam once carried me in her arms. I used to play with her belly ring. I used to find it very shiny and beautiful. She was on a weight loss spree as she was prepping up for her debut through Saawariya, however she used to make me eat chocolates (laughs).”Read More
