Actors’ job is not a cake’s walk, at least for Tusshar it wasn’t recently when he had to lift Vidya Balan for a sequence in ‘The Dirty Picture’. Actually a few days back Tusshar had to lift Vidya Balan for a photo shoot of their next film but his trial began with Vidya’s lifting act. Vidya had to put on some extra kilos for essaying Silk Smitha in ‘The Dirty Picture’.
These extra kilos proved tough for Tusshar to be handled. As Tusshar couldn’t get the right pose for the first time he had to give another take. And could you beat it! He ended up giving more than 150 takes for the same pose. The shoot which was not meant not to be extended for more than half an hour ended up after almost three hours.
Talking about it Tusshar says, “It took long because we wanted a perfect shot. We had to capture all possible options so that the publicist has multiple choices at the time of releasing the pictures.”
The actor was supposed to support on his chest and sport a cheerful smiley facial expression besides Vidya’s being supposed to be calm and composed with half her body weight on Tusshar. Recollecting the whole scene, Tusshar says, “Since her legs too had to be lifted from the back, so it was a tricky shot. And that’s why we ended up doing some 150 shots of the same pose.”
Praising his co-star Vidya he says, “Vidya was very supportive and never got tired. She even insisted on some peppy music to be in the mood for the shoot.”
We guess you would have given a thought to Vidya’s advice, may be then your work might have got a bit easier.
