City-based cardiologist Dr Bikram Mohanty, who also got a chance to act in the film, Eat Pray Love, says it was a great experience. “I shot for a day in Pataudi last week. It was a hospital scene where I performed an open-heart surgery on actor Richard Jenkins. In the film, the scene will be shown in a Texas setting. Jenkin was really sweet.
