Deepika Padukone was inhibited while shooting for a wet, steamy scene

Who’d believe actress Deepika Padukone can be uncomfortable in shooting an intimate scene. Not only does she look shy, she was actually nervous while doing a soap ad in Chennai, which required her to get cozy with model-cum-actor Rajesh Bapat.
The ad had to be shot under shower with Deepika and Rajesh. And since both the actors were new to each other, it took around 45 retakes to final the shot, claim sources. Director Pradeep Sarkar then thought of a trick to make Deepika comfortable. He asked to play the song ‘Bachna Ae Haseeno’ which is from Deepika’s film and also one of her favourite tracks, in the background instead of the ad jingle. The idea was to lighten up Deepika’s serious mood so that she can give the perfect shot, and the trick worked.
Director Pradeep Sarkar confirmed this news to a daily that he played the song to make the moment light on the sets and to help Deepika to get the right mood for the shot. Deepika’s discomfiture is shocking as she has done kissing scenes with Saif Ali Khan in her next Love Aaj Kal. And during her modeling days she also posed in bikini for Kingfisher’s calendar.
This incident is quite similar to what Ranbir Kapoor went through recently while romancing Kashmira Shah in a spicy scene for Karan Johar’s Wake Up Sid. The shot was okayed after many retakes.
