Naomi Campbell doesn’t throw tantrums
She might be one of the world’s best known faces on the catwalk, but supermodel Naomi Campbell hasn’t always been in the news for the right reasons. However, Suchitra Krishnamoorthy, who worked with Naomi in Karma Aur Holi, says that it was a great experience.
In fact she tells us that she’s known the model for a while now. “I’d met Naomi before and was always taken aback by her beauty and energy.”
But what about all those tales about her throwing tantrums on the sets? Suchitra replies, “Naomi’s tantrums are legendary but frankly I didn’t see any of it. She’d come and sit with all of us on the sets and be very professional. It was only when she noticed that Sushmita had insisted on a separate make-up room and make-up personnel for herself that she put her foot down and demanded the same for herself. Finally the issue reached such a point that she only allowed herself to be directed by David Roma, the associate director, who is her friend. I think she didn’t trust the Indian crew after that incident.”
And how did she like the experience of shooting a Bollywood film? Suchitra says, “She was amazed by the fact that Indian girls could dance so well. She’d ask,‘How do you swivel your hips so effortlessly?’ I just laughed and told her that it’s the one way in which Indian girls are comfortable expressing their sexuality. She put her heart and soul into the Holi song trying to dance the Indian way.”
