Priyanka Chopra was a bundle of nerves when she was told by director Vishal Bhardwaj that a passionate lovemaking scene was to be shot between her and senior actor Anu Kapoor for the movie Saat Khoon Maaf during the last shooting schedule in Coorg.
The actress who has done steamy scenes with the likes of Shahid Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor in the past, shied away from lying in the bed with Anu Kapoor. The reason that’s being cited is that Priyanka respects Anu as a senior and wasn’t comfortable in doing the hot scene with him.
Reports say Priyanka did not express her apprehension to director Vishal Bhardwaj directly. Rather, she sent the feelers through her assistant.
Talking about Priyanka’s refusal to do the sex scene, Anu Kapoor tells a tabloid: “Vishal ne mujhe bola ki Priyanka sharma rahi hai. Maine usko bola toh fir scene hi kaat do na? (Vishal said to me that Priyanka is feeling shy. So I told him to chop off the scene.”
However, Vishal shot the scene separately with Priyanka and Anu. On the editing table the shots would be clipped together in such a way that the audience would find it hard to figure out that the two actors did not shoot together.
That’s where the cunning of any filmmaker comes handy.
