Stand-up comedian and TV show host Kapil Sharma, who is all set for his Bollywood debut with Abbas-Mustan’s forthcoming comic family entertainer ‘Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon’, surprised the director duo while shooting an emotional scene.
“There was an emotional scene, where Kapil is shown drunk and narrates what happens with him throughout. It was a five-page dialogue scene,” said Abbas.
“We asked Kapil to come prepared and we also came prepared. Shoot was scheduled for eight in the night. We had ordered for dinner, late night snacks and morning breakfast for the unit. After the lighting was set and all was done, we started the shot at around 8 pm,” he added.
What happened next took the directors and the entire cast and crew by surprise.
“We told Kapil about the markings and camera movements. The shoot began and we were surprised as we had to pack-up by 9.30 pm. Kapil did the five page dialogue in one shot. He asked for one more take but we were confident and didn’t go for the second take. It was very well performed by Kapil and we were fully satisfied,” said Abbas.
Explaining about the same scene, Kapil told media how he remembered his father who is no more and this pain of missing him at this stage of life helped him do that scene without using glycerin.
‘Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon’ also stars Arbaaz Khan, Manjari Fadnis, Simran Kaur Mundi and Elli Avram. It will be introducing Sai Lokur.
The film is slated to release on September 25.
