The title of the 'serial kisser' of Indian cinema no longer belongs to Bollywood actor Emraan Hashmi. Giving him company is Tamil actor-director GV Prakash Kumar.
It has come to light that for a lip-locking scene from the upcoming Tamil romantic-comedy Trisha Illana Nayanthara, actor-composer GV Prakash Kumar and co-star Manisha Yadav had to enact the said scene 36 times before canning the perfect shot.
"Prakash was initially hesitant about the lip-lock scene. He wasn't comfortable with the idea. However, Manisha didn't have any qualms about it and instantly gave her a nod when she was narrated the scene. It took Prakash some motivation, but he eventually gave in," said a source from the film's unit.
It took 36 takes because the scene was shot from different angles.
"The director wanted to capture the scene from the most appropriate angle in order to not make it look dirty. Hence, it took so many takes to lock the shot," the source said.
Directed by debutant Adhik Ravichandran, the film features Anandhi as one of the leading ladies, while veteran actor Simran Bagga has essayed a cameo.
Prakash's other films as actor includes Ketta Payada Indha Karthi and Basha Engira Anthony. He has also signed a yet-untitled film with Darling director Sam Anton, and this project will be produced by Studio Green.
