Sometimes actors have to do bizarre things to get into the skin of their characters. And we can say that who better than Vidya Balan to vouch for that!
It so happened that for her upcoming film 'Hamari Adhuri Kahani', the actress was slapped thrice by her co-actor Rajkumar Rao.
An insider from the sets reveals, "Rajkumar plays Vidya’s husband in the film. While the slap was part of the script, no one was expecting him to actually hit her. Usually, when it comes to actions such as these, actors just shoot make-believe scenes. The camera makes it all look real. So, when he slapped her for the first time, everyone was shocked.” Apparently, the scene required three retakes, which is why Vidya was slapped thrice. Even the director Mohit Suri wasn't expecting this sort of a reaction. He further adds, “I actually jumped out of my seat, but then I realised that Vidya was holding the scene well. That’s when it donned on me that both the actors had planned this in advance to make the scene look authentic.”
Produced by Vishesh Films and presented by Fox Star Studios, 'Hamari Adhuri Kahani' stars Emraan Hashmi, Vidya Balan and Rajkumar Rao. The film is slated to hit the theatrical screens on 12th July.
