It seems flying in an economy class is no more a big deal for the Bollywood celebrities. After Hema Malini who played it cool as she flew in an economy class, it was Deepika Padukone along with the team of ‘Karthik Calling Karthik’ who traveled in the economy class this Monday from Jaipur to Mumbai. The private jet in which they were supposed to go could not head for Mumbai due to a cyclone threat. It was necessary for the team members to reach Mumbai as most of them had to leave for Dubai for the premiere on Tuesday morning. So, they had to book themselves into the economy class of a commercial airline.
The team had a gala time as they spent their night playing cards instead of taking rest even after a hectic day.
Deepika recalls, “We had blocked a whole row and instead of sleeping after a super-hectic day we started playing Mendicot. We forgot we were in a commercial flight. So we were yelling and screaming in excitement while the rest of the passengers were trying to sleep.”
Deepika is now hooked to the game and says, “I can’t stop playing Mendicot. Ritesh and Farhan introduced me and director Vijay Lalwani to the game. When we took off on Sunday from Mumbai on our private jet the first thing Farhan and Ritesh did was to teach us this game. I’ve become addicted.
I loved the whirlwind promotional tour. For two days I had more fun than I’ve had in my entire life. Throughout the trip we played Mendicot -not teen patti, please! We didn’t sleep at all for two days because some of the flight-duration was less than two hours. So all we did was play Mendicot on flight.”
