In the tradition of method actors treading that extra mile… Shifaali Shah who enacts a bored, listless housewife unleashing her adventurous streak and running into a criminal in hubby Vipul Shah‘s production Kucch Luv Jaisaa, did quite the unimaginable.
The actress who displayed acting merit in Satya and Monsoon Wedding… spent a day in jail with an undertrial to get a first hand feel of her cine character!
Clad in a white kurti and shorn of greasepaint, Shifaali, who didn’t inform director Barnali Shukla or co actor Rahul Bose about her moves… accomplished the act with finesse.
States Shifaali in a tabloid chat, "It was unnerving, but I wanted to be honest. I wanted to be completely non judgmental towards the undertrial with whom I spent the day."
Soon enough, Shifaali realised that she did share a common ground of "what two human beings could possibly share," and reveals that they spoke of "everything under the sun, including the food in the jail."
A slimmer, saucier Shifaali asserts that she wanted to destroy her "comfort zone" and challenge her past roles by "coming up with something fresh and exciting."
"Thankfully, I could do so with this film," asserts Shifaali.
Guess, it’s a ‘Luv’ ly challenge…
