Shooting for an intimate scene can be a daunting task for any actor. But John Abraham and Kangana Ranaut sailed through the lovemaking sequences in their upcoming gangster saga, Shootout At Wadala.

A source says, “It is tastefully shot but is also explicit. It is the only intense lovemaking scene between them and it appears with a romantic number, Yeh Junoon, sung by Pakistani singer Mustafa Zahid, playing in the background.”

In the film, John Abraham plays the iconic Mumbai gangster, Manya Surve, while Kangana Ranaut plays his girlfriend, Vidya.

The source adds that John didn’t need much convincing from the makers to say yes to the scene. “He realised that this scene was integral to the plot as it appears at a turning point in the Manya-Vidya romance. As far as Kangana is concerned, she was quite uninhibited.” 

Adhering to the norm that is usually followed for shooting such scenes, this sequence too was filmed in a closed set. “There were very few people present on the set. Both John and Kangana were comfortable. In fact, Kangana even broke her glass bangles and hurt her wrist while shooting for the steamy scene,” informs the insider.

John is not new to doing steamy sequences; he has done quite a few intimate scenes in the past in films such as Jism (2006), Paap (2004), New York (2009), Aashayein (2010).

Kangana, too, has been part of many lovemaking sequences in Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai (2010), Woh Lamhe (2006) and Gangster (2006).
