“This OCD was first detected in protagonist of movie Raja Harishchandra, he was the first one who covered the leading lady of movie with blanket while she was sleeping. And from there it passed on to generations, and I am sure will continue in future too,” said Bezan Filmwala throwing some light on history of OCD to cover with blanket.
“Filmmakers never tried to get a cure for this, as even though it’s a disorder, it always did good for a movie. It adds to the affection and chemistry between character,” Bezan added.

“I once put a blanket over by wife while she was sleeping on summer night and kept looking at her for 10 minutes. And all of sudden she woke up slapped me for putting over blanket in summer, but it was so cute. I did it again after a couple of night,” disclosed newly married Vinod almost blushingly.
