Mumbai, Feb 9 (IANS) In a fit of rage, actor Upen Patel ripped apart the shirt provided to him as part of his costume for the comedy 'Money Hai To Honey Hai' while shooting in Mauritius.
Apparently, Upen was so exasperated with the clothes provided to him that he cut the shirt to pieces with scissors. Currently busy establishing himself as a reliable actor, Upen did not deny the story.Upen Patel" src="http://www1.india-forums.com/bollywood/images/uploads/upen_patel_big.jpg" align="right" border="" hspace="5" vspace="5">
He told IANS: 'You tell me what is one supposed to do when one is working with actors of the calibre of Govinda and Manoj Bajpai? Focus on getting my acting right or taking care of my external trappings like clothes and makeup?
'I wanted the people chosen to take care of my clothes to do their job while I did mine. Unfortunately, these two new people (name not revealed for obvious reasons) kept offering clothes that didn't gel with my character. They'd bring five T-shirts and 10 pair of jeans picked up from the pavements and would want me to choose. Is this the way to build up the character?'
Upen says he doesn't have a temper problem.
'I certainly didn't throw a fit without reason, but there's just so much a person take before losing his cool. One day, these costume designers asked me to show my body in my clothes. The next day, they wanted me shirtless for no reason,' he said.
'I strongly believe that clothes play a big part in establishing a graph and lend continuity to characters. You can't put me in any thing just because I've a good body. Sorry, I won't flaunt my physique for no rhyme or reason,' Upen hit out.
Upen gives full marks to his designers for dressing him up decently.
'When my friend Manish Malhotra or Narendra Kumar do my clothes, we sit and discuss my look and decide on the clothes accordingly. But during 'Money Hai To Honey Hai', the clothes were a bit too casual for me. Yes, I did lose my cool. Though I'm not proud of it, I am not apologetic about it either because it was done under provocation.'
