Bollywood is always been known as the most undisciplined and mismanaged Industry. A handful of actors like Amitabh Bachchan do come on time for every event, but we can count professionals like him on our fingers.On the other hand the Hollywood actors, with fan followings across the globe and with tons of commitments reach the venue bang on time.
In Hollywood, not just interviews, even red carpet events with thousands of fans go as per schedule. If the premiere is at 7 pm, the talent will start coming one by one at 7 pm. The event will end at 8 pm.
In Bollywood even during the Golden Era the indiscipline was there.We have heard horror stories of stars making even filmmakers wait. Isn't it funny that the production crew is on time, the dancers are always waiting in their costumes, the entire set crew is ready, but the lead star is always stuck in traffic?
Kishore Kumar was infamous for being always late,Raj Kumar was also infamous for his tantrums. Dev Anand and Dilip Kumar were known for their discipline and professionalism.In the 70s Rajesh Khanna and Shatrughan Sinha were infamous for their late comings while the most discipline star remains Amitabh Bachchan. There are many stories about his punctuality.Many time he reported at the studio well before production team or the gatekeeper arrives.Due to his punctuality, he occasionally opens the gate of Filmistan studio all by himself.
Of the present lot Akshay Kumar and John Abraham are very punctual.Out of three Khans Aamir Khan is always on time. Salman Khan is infamous for coming late.Before him it was Govinda who was infamous for coming late on the sets.
Among the heroines Kajol and Karina Kapoor are late comers. During an interview with Aamir Khan, he mentioned he is not too fond of working with Kajol because she is one of the most non-punctual actresses to work with. Is that why we haven't seen them together after Fanaa while Anushka Sharma and Priyanka Chopra are very disciplined.
