Shouting and crying for Madhur Bhandarkar‘s opus Heroine has finally taken a toll on Kareena Kapoor‘s health. While shooting for an intense scene for her upcoming film, Kapoor got so much into her character, that she ended up with a sore throat.
Kareena, who is know for her spontaneity in front of the camera, actually stepped into the shoe of her character for the scene and so impressed was Madhur with his Heroine‘s performance, that he forgot to say cut after the scene got over.
"Kareena was sure that behaving like her character would bring out a better result. In the scenes where she has to shout at her co-actors Arjun Rampal and Randeep Hooda, she let the feelings simmer within her before going in for the take. So when she shot those scenes, she really screaming her lungs out, expressing the rage and the pain that her character feels at that moment, " a source was quoted saying.
"She stuck to her natural approach. So when Madhur Bhandarkar called for action, she actually burst out – sobbing and giving her dialogue in between sniffles, while everyone around watched in rapt attention. It took Madhur Bhandarkar a couple of seconds to realise that the shot was over, before he could call ‘Cut!’," the source further adds.
"So much so that she couldn’t speak properly. Naturally, the director was doubly worried. The heavy-duty action scenes were taking a toll on his leading lady and they couldn’t afford to cancel even a day’s shoot. Thankfully, Kareena was feeling better the following day," the source informed.
Kareena’s spokesperson has confirmed that the actress hasn’t been keeping too well, however she hasn’t let her ill-health affect the shooting schedule.
The much-anticipated film features Arjun Rampal, Randeep Hooda, Rakesh Bapat, Divya Dutta, Shahana Goswami and Helen alongside Kareena and is slated to release on September 14, 2012.
