Bollywood actors have often admitted that shooting for intense scenes can take a toll on them not only emotionally, but also physically. Kareena Kapoor Khan recently had a similar experience, when she was enacting a dramatic scene for director R Balki’s next.
A source close to the actor says, “It was an emotional scene, where she was supposed to be arguing with Arjun Kapoor, who plays her husband in the film. She was required to scream a lot. It was during this performance that she lost her voice temporarily. For two hours, she couldn’t speak at all. She even tried gargling with warm water to soothe her throat, but that didn’t help either.”
Apparently, the unit members then got a doctor to visit Kareena on the sets. After being given an injection, she felt slightly better. The source adds, “But the moment she started recovering, instead of getting some rest, Kareena decided to start shooting for another scene, which, she knew, would not be too exhausting. She didn’t want to waste the day.”
For over two weeks, Kareena has been shooting for almost 14 hours a day for this film. “She reaches the sets at around 7am, and her hair and make-up takes two hours. She only gets back home by midnight,” the insider adds. We tried contacting Kareena, but she was unavailable for a comment.
