Gurmeet Choudhary doesn’t mind going the extra mile for his work. Even if that means he has to temporarily move out of his own house. Last month, the actor checked into a hotel in Mumbai for three days as he wanted some peace and quiet. He did so because his Goregaon (W) house was being renovated at that time, and he was in the middle of preparing for a crucial scene for his next.
Gurmeet says, “I always take a few days off before shooting for my films to understand the character. This time, my role involved a lot of emotional drama, and I wanted it to look natural. I knew I couldn’t have got that kind of energy at home, since too much was happening with the renovation work, and with so many people going in and out. So, I moved into a hotel in Malad (W) for that period.” In the end, the climax turned out to be an emotional scene, and both the actor and his director were thrilled with the result.
Gurmeet reveals that his wife, Debina Bonnerjee, supported his decision. “She understands, as an actor, what is required of me,” he says.
