Amit Sadh almost went to jail a few years ago for trying to help a very close friend to elope with the latter’s girlfriend. The actor recently revealed this anecdotal incident and its uncanny resemblance to his reel life role in the soon to be released movie Running Shaadi.

 The actor explained how a friend of his was in love with a girl who lived in their neighborhood in Mumbai. One day the couple decided to elope and get married since the girl’s parents vehemently opposed to their relationship. Amit shared how he volunteered to help them elope, little knowing that doing so would land all of them in all sorts of trouble.

 Looking back and fondly reminiscing about the episode, Amit laughed on how close he was to being jailed
 for attempting to be a good Samaritan. “It was funny now when I look back and think but when we got caught, we were scared to death. I was only helping a dear friend who genuinely loved his girlfriend and wanted to be making sure he could spend his married life with her. But much like a dramatic film, we were caught and the father didn’t take it too well, almost landing my friend and me in jail. But after a lot of talking and counselling matters got resolved. Though I’m glad I helped them, they’re still together, intact and very happy!” All is well that ends well.

Produced by Ronnie Lahiri, Shoojit Sircar and Crouching Tiger Motion Pictures, Running Shaadi  releases in cinemas on 17 February 2017.
