In Raja Hindustani, Archana Puran Singh said she wore a miniskirt for a sequence. She was expecting a child at the time.
Raja Hindustani featured Archana Puran Singh as the antagonist.
Sonali Kulkarni talked about finishing some patchwork for Singham while pregnant in a ‘uncensored’ video from The Kapil Sharma Show with The Whistleblower cast. Archana Puran Singh also talked about her time shooting for Raja Hindustani while pregnant with her son.
Archana recalled shooting for Raja Hindustani while expecting her first child. While director Dharmesh Darshan was willing to wait for her, she did not want to cause the film to be delayed for too long. “Miniskirt pehen kar main racket aise aise ghuma rahi hoon aur gaana gaa rahi hoon, Abhi Toh Main Jawaan Hoon,” she joked.
“Usme main kyun fry ho gayi thi mujhe batana padega,” Sonali said about shooting for Rohit Shetty’s cop drama Singham, which stars Ajay Devgn in the titular role. She stated that she informed the chief assistant director of her pregnancy on her last day on set.
Sonali, on the other hand, received a call four months later about shooting some patchwork. When she told them she was six and a half months pregnant, the unit tried to come up with a solution. “Don’t worry,” they said, “we’ll make you wear a darker saree, hum blend kar lenge (we’ll blend), and we’ll try to get close-ups and mid-close shots.”
Sonali played the wife of an honest police officer who commits suicide as a result of false accusations of corruption levelled against him in Singham. “Main set pe jaa rahi hoon, meri team mere saath hai aur Ajay aur Rohit aise khade ho gaye, bole, ‘Sonali, kya film dikhayenge hum log?” she exclaimed. Poori movie mein Ajay ne ek vidhwa ke liye, uske anyaay ko mitane ke liye itna sangharsh kiya aur woh vidhwa pregnant hai?’ (Ajay and Rohit were standing on the set as I approached.) ‘What will we show the audience?’ they asked. Ajay spends the entire movie assisting a widow in her fight for justice, and in the final scene, that widow is pregnant?’).
