MUMBAI: To give a scene reality touch while shooting, actor Anupam Kher and Lisa Haydon downed a little too much red wine on the sets of The Shaukeens.
Tired after a hard day at work, where the lead actors Anupam Kher, Annu Kapoor, Piyush Mishra and Lisa Haydon were scheduled to travel to three different locations to shoot three different scenes in one day, with each location about two hours away from the next. Haydon and Kher decided to break away from the tradition of using mock drinks for shooting the last scene for the day where they were to be filmed while drinking wine by having actual red wine.
By the time the final shot was taken, the two had downed three to four glasses each, a source from the sets revealed. “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 a 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 7 November 2014.
