Director duo Sajid and Farhad shot scenes from their upcoming comedy Entertainment without any special effects for their canine star! Entertainment stars Akshay Kumar and canine artist, Junior. Farhad says,
“As directors we found it difficult to extract work from a dog. But Junior was so good at emoting that we never once felt that we were shooting with an animal. He was completely natural before the camera.”
Referring to a certain bhau-bhau scene in which it looks like the dog is actually talking, Sajid says,
“It was Farhad’s idea to come up with that scene. It just happened on the spur of the moment and he told me and Akshay about it and we were game.”
Apparently Junior was a complete workaholic and shot for 15 days continuously. On the 16th day, he was given a break. Sajid adds,
“We felt that he was getting restless and thus shot all playful scenes with him and that calmed him down. Of course we had a dog on standby who looked like Junior. We even had a doctor present on the sets. But Junior is so well trained and talented their services were used to the bare minimum.”
