What all does an actor has to pay to make a film hit. As Kareena Kapoor is playing the lead in Madhur Bhandarkar’s much anticipated film, ‘Heroine’, she is making sure to perfect everything. However everything is not easy for her. The performance oriented role has taken a toll on her health.
While she has shot many emotional scenes for her film, she is down with sore throat. A source said, “The kind of scenes that she was doing a few days ago were really intense and required Bebo to bring out the rawness of feelings that her character undergoes at some point in the storyline.”
He adds, “Kareena rejected method acting to shoot for her role. Instead, she decided to step into the character’s shoes and portray the emotions naturally. Kareena was sure that behaving like her character would bring out a better result. In the scenes where she has to shout at her co-actors Arjun Rampal and Randeep Hooda, she let the feelings simmer within her before going in for the take.”
“So when she shot those scenes, she really screaming her lungs out, expressing the rage and the pain that her character feels at that moment,” the source revealed.
“Kareena even refused to use glycerin to induce tears and cried naturally for the shot,” the source said. “She stuck to her natural approach. So when Madhur Bhandarkar called for action, she actually burst out – sobbing and giving her dialogue in between sniffles, while everyone around watched in rapt attention. It took Madhur Bhandarkar a couple of seconds to realize that the shot was over, before he could call ‘Cut!’,” he added.
At the end of the day Bebo was unwell and down with sore throat. She was exhausted and ill. Her throat became so bad “that she couldn’t speak properly. Naturally, the director was doubly worried. The heavy-duty action scenes were taking a toll on his leading lady and they couldn’t afford to cancel even a day’s shoot. Thankfully, Kareena was feeling better the following day,” said the source.
Though Kareena was unavailable for comment, however her spokesperson said, “Kareena was unwell for a couple of days but didn’t let it affect the shoot schedule.”
