Bollywood What's Happenin'

Behind the scenes of ‘The Shaukeens’: Anupam and Lisa got drunk!

Acting is no easy task, and the cast of The Shaukeens has been giving it their all. Leaving no stone unturned for their roles in the film, Anupam Kher and Lisa Haydon even downed a little too much red wine to bring a realistic feel to the shot!

During their shoot in Mauritius, lead actors Anupam Kher, Annu Kapoor, Piyush Mishra and Lisa Haydon were scheduled to travel to three different locations to shoot three different scenes, all in one day. Each location was about two hours away from the next, and they were all tired by the end of the day when Lisa and Anupam Kher were to be filmed while drinking wine. The two decided to break away from the tradition of using mock drinks and filmed the scene while drinking actual red wine. By the time the final shot was taken, the two had downed three to four glasses each. Apparently, they were both quite tipsy. A source from the sets said,

“Luckily, it was the last scene for the day. So, no one noticed that the actors were actually in high spirits.”

The Shaukeens is a remake of 1982 comedy movie Shaukeen directed by Basu Chatterjee. It stars Anupam Kher, Annu Kapoor, Piyush Mishra and Lisa Haydon along with Akshay Kumar in his most special appearance. Produced by Cine1 Studios, Cape Of Good Films and Ashwin Varde Productions and directed by Abhishek Sharma, the film is set to release on November 7, 2014.
