Actors are known to go to great lengths to lend a feel of realism to their roles on screen. But it can also backfire badly and actor Priyanka Chopra learnt that while she was shooting for Vishal Bhardwaj's film.
Apparently, a scene required PC to slap co-star Irrfan Khan. Knowing Irrfan's professionalism, everyone on the sets goaded the pretty actor to slap him for real, to make it look convincing.
A source reveals, "PC initially kept slapping Irrfan lightly, but it just didn't come out right. So, the crew egged on Priyanka to slap him a little harder. Finally, she mustered a lot of courage and gave Irrfan a tight slap. Before she could recover from the shock of hitting Irrfan for real, she got another shock, as Irrfan slapped her right back." Though it was part of the sequence, what Priyanka had not anticipated was that Irrfan would also slap her back so hard for real. The entire crew was visibly shocked and didn't know what to say.
The source added, "Priyanka was extremely upset, but later resumed shooting. The two stars however maintained a safe distance after that." Seems like actor Annu Kapoor is not the only husband who's upset with PC as his screen wife.
