Yes, you read that right. Rajkummar Rao reportedly slapped his ‘Humari Adhuri Kahani‘ co-star, Vidya Balan not once or twice, but three times on the sets of their upcoming film! The slaps occurred during the shooting of a domestic violence scene which required Rajkummar to slap Vidya.
“Rajkumar plays Vidya’s husband in the film. While the slap was part of the script, no one was expecting him to actually hit her. Usually, when it comes to actions such as these, actors just shoot make-believe scenes,” said a source. “The camera makes it all look real. So, when he slapped her for the first time, everyone was shocked,” added the source.
The scene reportedly required three retakes which is why Rajkummar ended up slapping Vidya three times. The director of the film, Mohit Suri admits that he wasn’t expecting real slaps. “I actually jumped out of my seat, but then I realized that Vidya was holding the scene well. That’s when it dawned on me that both the actors had planned this in advance to make the scene look authentic,” Mohit revealed in a statement.
Humari Adhuri Kahani also stars Emraan Hashmi and is scheduled to release on June 12th. What are your thoughts on this? Sound off in the comment section below.
