Shocker: Rajkummar Rao slaps Vidya Balan thrice

Bollywood actress Vidya Balan was recently slapped thrice by Rajkummar Rao. No No, the actor slapped the ‘Dirty Picture’ actress for a shot in their upcoming film ‘Hamari Adhuri Kahani‘ . The scene was for depicting domestic violence in the upcoming film. Where Rajkummar had to slap Vidya as part of the script.

Sources revealed that, “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. The camera makes it all look real. So, when he slapped her for the first time, everyone was shocked.”

Director Mohit Suri said, “I actually jumped out of my seat, but then I realised that Vidya was holding the scene well. That’s when it donned on me that both the actors had planned this in advance to make the scene look authentic.”

Oh! the travails of adding authenticity to a film’s script.
