Preity Zinta shares how Santosh Sivan took care of her on the sets of Dil Se..

During her conversation with DD India from the Cannes Film Festival, the actress recalled how Santosh Sivan took care of her while they were shooting the song, Jiya Jale from the 1998 Mani Ratnam film. Preity shared that she had fallen sick after dancing in the rain, and the cinematographer made sure to make her eat the right food. Recalling the incident, Preity added:

“While we were shooting in Kerala, the song had a little light rain. You don't really see the rain, but it was there. So in the four days there, my bones were hurting in the rain, I had a fever, and I wasn't feeling well. Santosh came and got me rasam and all the food, and said, ‘Why don’t you eat this? It's hot.' He was really sweet and took care of me.”
