When you are actor, you need to endure all sorts of pain. One may think that acting is easy and the actors make big bucks for just looking glamorous, but this can’t be father than truth.
Jackie Shroff and Anil Kapoor have worked together in several movies like ‘Ram Lakhan’, ‘1942: A Love Story’, ‘Kabhi Na Kabhi’ and ‘Parinda’. The audiences have always loved the rapport these two seasoned actors shared on the screen and have showered them with their blessings.
During an interview with an entertainment channel on TV, Shroff revealed that he had slapped Kapoor 17 times during a shooting. He said that in 1989 while shooting for the movie ‘Parinda’, the scene required him to slap Kapoor 17 times.
He further said that while the director, Vidhu Vinod Chopra, was satisfied with the scene, Kapoor had urged them to continue taking re-takes as he was not completely happy with the shot. This made Shroff slap Kapoor 17 times till Kapoor was satisfied with the take. Shroff also said that the slaps did not hurt Kapoor as they were not hard enough to make him fall on the floor.
Jackie Shroff will now be seen in the movie ‘The Playboy Mr Sawhney’ with Tahir Bhasin. The movie is directed by Tariq Siddiqui.
Well, it is no hidden secret that actors do not hurt each other in reality while shooting but Anil Kapoor really took it to another level by making Shroff slap him 17 times. As they say in the show business – the show must go on!
