Recently it was in the news that Balaji would take Emraan Hashmi & Huma Qureshi to the Mahakumbh to seek blessings for the forthcoming Ek Thi Daayan. When Monica Bose read about it, she connected with Ekta Kapoor to let her accompany them to Allahabad.
Monica Bose is no ordinary woman. She was Kapoor’s English teacher at the Bombay Scottish School. The 65-year old has also taught celebrities such as John Abraham, Hrithik Roshan and Aamir Khan. Bose was keen to visit the Mahakumbh but was petrified of handling the experience alone. Ekta instantly agreed and her jolly teacher was in celebrity company and couldn’t stop blessing her ex-student and the entire team of Ek Thi Daayan for looking after her.
At one point, she even regaled Emraan and Huma on the flight with hilarious anecdotes about the wilful and youthful school-time antics of Ekta, much to her red-faced embarrassment.
