Anurag Kashyap’s wife Kalki Koechlin will soon be seen steaming on the screen with another woman. In one of the scenes in debutant director Bejoy Nambiar’s film, the actor locks lips with newcomer Keerti Kulhari.
Shaitan talks about youngsters in a metro, who have no hang-ups or boundaries when it comes to seeking excitement. Bejoy reveals, “The scene came about as part of a truth-or-dare game, and also appears in the montage. The idea was that we spin the bottle and when it stops, the people at both ends of it kiss each other.”
He adds, “It was quite funny and spontaneous when we shot for the scene since Keerti was completely unaware of the fact that we were shooting a kiss. What you see in the scene is the real deal. Her expression is completely off-guard and natural,” says Kalki.
The director reveals that Keerti didn’t take him seriously till the scene was being shot. “She thought we were joking,” he adds. Keerti confirms that she was “shocked and dumbfounded” after the scene. She says, “I play a lower middle class girl who wants to be a top model and is in love with this rich guy. She tries to be cool to be a part of his gang. But he doesn’t respect her much. The scene, I suppose, was one such way of being accepted in the group and so she goes along with it.”
The film, which also stars Rajeev Khandelwal, Neil Bhoopalam (of No One Killed Jessica fame), Shiv Pandit and Gulshan Devaiah, is set to release on June 10.
