On a recent shoot schedule, Smriti Kalra who plays Simi in Zee TV’s ‘12/24 Karol Bagh’ wanted to go for shopping in the break. So, she took off in a production car and spent some time at the local mall. But the actress was not aware about the trouble which was awaiting her.
An onlooker says, “After wrapping up with the shopping, she tried calling the driver to ask him to get the car to the exit closest, so that she doesn’t have to carry her bags all the way to the parking. But the driver’s phone kept ringing. On returning to the parking lot, Smriti realized that the driver was nowhere to be seen near the car. She tried calling him again and again the driver’s phone started flashing from inside the car.”
Source goes on, “Smriti got livid as there was no way to contact the driver and she was left stranded with her shopping bags outside the car. After 15 minutes of waiting, the driver appeared casually strolling back to the car. At this point, Smriti lost her cool and started loudly shouting at the driver. In no mood to tolerate her raving and ranting, the driver started arguing back aggressively and Smriti simply lost it.”
“She threatened to have him lose his job and the driver swung the car into action and drove away even before Smriti could get into it. Poor Smriti had to find her own way back to the desolate Chatturpur farms where the crew was shooting. Needless to say, the driver was fired but Smriti had one helluva shopping nightmare she’ll remember for some time to come,” signs off the source.
