Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh has shared details on filming the electric shock scene for his Bollywood Christmas release ‘Cirkus’. To make the rehearsals appear authentic, film director Rohit Shetty made him repeat the scenes and turned him into a real live wire on screen.
Ranveer Singh shares: “Rohit Sir made me rehearse the scene way before we started shooting, to perfect the reaction of a person getting electrified.
“We rehearsed so much that our scenes look very natural and are not overdone. It is not a situation where you can take real-life experience and perform.”
Singh said he wanted to give it his all to make the scene flawless: “One can’t just go and grab an electric wire to understand the reaction. I have tried to do it my way and there are a few special effects added by Rohit Sir to make it look more real.”
To promote their film ‘Cirkus’, actors Ranveer Singh, Jacqueline Fernandes, Pooja Hegde, Varun Sharma, Ashwini Kalsekar, Sulbha Arya, Vrajesh Hirjee, Anil Charanjeet, Vijay Patkar, Siddharth Jadhav, Tiku Talsania and director Rohit Shetty have been out in full force ahead of its release in time for the Christmas holidays on December 23.
The comedy-drama is directed by Shetty and has Ranveer Singh playing a double role.
