Every actor knows that director Vishal Bharadwaj can go to any lengths to bring his characters alive. And Anushka Sharma was no expception. The actress experienced this during the shooting of Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola.
Says an insider, “Vishal Bharadwaj wanted his heroine to rise out of the water like a James Bond heroine on her very first shot. If it was for any other film or any other location, they would have certainly chosen a swimming pool. But since the shooting of this film was taking place in a small village of Haryana, all they could find was a small pool of muddied water. It was not only dirty but there were all kinds of insects and amphibians in the water too.”
Vishal Bhardwaj decided that Anushka would rise from the waters of this pool. One can imagine what reaction would Anushka give to the situation as she has never faced such situation in her life.
“Everyone on the set felt that Anushka would initially refuse to do the scene. But realizing the situation Anushka not only proved everyone wrong but also did the scene well,” adds the source.
