    Default Not comfy with Deepika

    Follow us on Social Media


    Recently, Deepika shot for a soap ad in Chennai. She had to get up close and very personal with model Rakesh Bapat in the sizzling ad. As both the actors hardly knew each other they took at least 45 retakes before they got the right moves. To make things easy for Deepika, director Pradeep Sarkar played the title track of Bachna Ae Haseeno instead of the ad jingle so that Deepika could shed her inhibitions. A source, who was present on the sets, said, “Yes, we took almost 50 retakes. The ad was shot under a shower and had to be filmed keeping certain technicalities in mind because the product (soap) had to be the focal point. After several retakes, director Pradeep Sarkar and cameraman Anil Mehta suddenly came up with the idea of playing Deepika’s favourite song.

    They played the title song of Bachna Ae Haseeno so that Deepika could feel comfortable enough to shoot. Deepika obviously loves the song and it made matters much easier for everybody present on the sets.Pradeep Sarkar said, “Yes, I played the song to make Deepika feel good. It helped in getting all the right moves. When asked about the number of retakes, Sarkar said, I only finalise a take when it’s right.

    There are many retakes and different shots when one is shooting an ad film. My edit process if still on so I won’t know the exact number of takes.Deepika remained unavailable for comment.
