It is seldom that actors enjoy shooting a particular sequence in a film so much that they completely forget everything around them. Well, actors Saif Ali Khan and Sonakshi Sinha happened to do just that while shooting for filmmaker Tigmanshu Dhulia’s latest flick, Bullett Raja.
What happened was that the pair was shooting for a romantic track, Saamne Saavera, in Kolkata. The song has a contemporary yet Victorian era feel to it. In a particular sequence, Saif’s character, Raja Mishra, is seen pulling his lady love, essayed by Sonakshi, on a hand-pulled rickshaw. Apparently, the actors enjoyed this sequence so much, that they didn’t realise when Tigmanshu called for a cut, and they continued having a gala time.
“They were shooting in the Dalhousie area. It was a scene where Sonakshi steps out from a tram where Saif follows her and offers to give her a ride on a hand-pulled rickshaw. They had so much fun while shooting that Saif didn’t even hear when the director called out for a cut in the scene. It was a very pleasant sight to see both the actors enjoying themselves so much,” said an onlooker from the sets.
The film is back dropped around the mafia in Uttar Pradesh and majority of the scenes have been shot in Kolkata and Uttar Pradesh. It also has a fresh pairing in the form of Saif and Sonakshi.
