MUMBAI—Bhushan Kumar’s wife Divya Khosla Kumar, who will be soon seen in T-Series first-ever web short film “Bulbul,” had a very funny encounter during the shoot.

While shooting for a scene in Mumbai, Kumar was in the character of a Sardar. During the break, Kumar ended up using a school’s restroom where the crew was shooting. A few ladies there mistook her for a man and started yelling at her for entering the wrong room. A female crew member had to convince them about the disguise.

The actress-filmmaker laughingly spoke about the situation. “It was hilarious, and we all still have a laugh over it. But I am happy that the women there fell for the disguise because to convince the audience that I am a Sardar will not be difficult.”

The film, majorly shot in Shimla and Mumbai, is directed by Ashish Panda and story is written by Kundan Shah. The film also features Shiv Pandit and Elli Avram.
