Actor Neha Dhupia, 30, may have recently said that she felt odd locking lips with Raghuvir Yadav in Gandhi To Hitler but Yadav says he can’t figure what the fuss is all about.
In the aforementioned scene, Yadav, who plays Hitler, is going to commit suicide and decides to ask Dhupia, who plays his long time companion, Eva Braun, to marry him. “Mujhe ajeeb nahi laga. Unhe ajeeb laga hoga (She may’ve felt odd, not me). In the scene, there was death in front of me, and we both wanted to be together before that,” says Yadav, adding, “Aise to bahut cheezein ajeeb lagni chahiye, main suicide karne jaa raha hun yeh bhi ajeeb lagna chahiye (That way, a lot of things should feel weird, like committing suicide, too). I felt no hesitation in accepting or doing it.” A few days ago, Dhupia had admitted that she felt odd while kissing Raghuvir.
Before the character actor agreed to emulate Hitler, the role had been offered to actor Anupam Kher. He turned down the offer because he feared it would upset his fans. Yadav, however, insists, “If I enact a character, I don’t become that person.”
