Alia Bhatt shares her most disturbing experience of shooting the gang rape scene for ‘Udta Punjab’
Actress Alia Bhatt had a successful innings in Bollywood this year with three back-to-back hits. Now with the start of the awards season, the actress has already been winning quite a few awards for her performance in ‘Udta Punjab’.
So, in a recent interview with a famous journalist, Alia spoke about the most disturbing experience of shooting the gang rape scene in ‘Udta Punjab’.
Speaking her heart out, Alia said, “Technically speaking, it was never ever graphic but while shooting… On set you want to be technical about it – ‘Han you come here, then this happens, then we’ll do that and I’ll scream and…’ So the face is all ‘Yeah, I’m with it, I’m okay with it because I’m acting’. But actually what’s happening inside is ‘I want this scene to get over. I just want this whole thing to get over.’ There used to be a walk in the lobby – walk to the lift and back to my room during ‘Udta Punjab’ – I used to dread that walk everyday when I’d be getting out of my room, and I used to love the walk everyday when I’d be coming back to my room. Even though I love my work and my films, it was just weird to be in that situation, but what was most weird was pretending that I was cool on set.”
We really appreciate the fact that our actors get completely involved in their characters. Well, Alia’s hard work has surely paid off.
