Shaitan actor Kalki and Bengali superstar Prosenjit have shot for an intense kissing sequence in Shanghai, which has leaked online.
Shanghai is a political thriller directed by Dibakar Banerjee, starring Abhay Deol, Emraan Hashmi and Kalki Koechlin.
Kalki who's playing an Indian girl with a mixed parentage not only attacked the actor but also bit his lips while filming, reports a daily.
Dibakar Banerjee apparently instructed Kalki to attack Prosenjit. "I told her to make the first move. Though both of them had rehearsed the scene, shooting it was extremely traumatic for Kalki. After every take, she would rush to the other room and cry to bring her emotions to the boiling point. While filming, she actually bit PC sir's lips!" the director told the daily.
"There is only one romantic pair in the film — Kalki and I. My character is highly educated and very intellectual, which attracts her to him. They are very passionate, which called for some really bold love making scenes,” Prosenjit had said in an interview with HT.
About his young co-star, he says, “She’s very hard working. Both of us had a problem with Hindi, but finally we did a good job, I hope.” The 49-year-old actor will be seen in a Hindi film 21 years after Veerta (1991).

“I took the role as it’s so strong that people will remember it forever,” he says.
Dibakar Banerjee says Prosenjit took almost two months to decide whether to do the film. “I had to meet him again and again to convince him,” he says. “Then he realised that I am treating everyone as a character in the film, so he finally agreed.”
