Sometimes actors go to ridiculous extremes to be realistic on a film set and recently it was Varun Dhavan who got drunk to inject some reality to a scene in Kota, being shot in Rajasthan.
Dishoom star is teaming up with Alia Bhatt in the film which has already started shooting for the first schedule.
After gulping several pegs of whiskey for the shooting of the scene, Varun had slept for an hour on the sets to cure his hangover before shooting for the rest of the scenes on that day.
Varun knew that he could not have managed such a natural performance without a drink.
He confesses he is not a habitual drinker and the most he takes at a party is a drink or two to live up the party spirits.
The Dishoom actor knew that it was important for the scene to pull out the natural performance out of him.
“Varun had a few drinks, that too neat, to prepare for the scene. The idea worked, as the scene went off well. Even the director (Shashank Khaitan) praised his performance. Varun knew that he could not have managed such a natural performance without those drinks,” an insider from the film sets said.
When a paper contacted Varun to ask about the particular scene, he said, “I had a few drinks as the scene required that kind of an effect. I was high for a while, but everything was okay.” – CINEWS
