South Actress Shivangi Mehra was hesitant shooting a lip lock scene with Slumdog Millionaire actor Madhur Mittal

Director Hemant Nilim Das had a tough time convincing his leading lady, Shivangi Mehra to do an intimate scene in the movie. The movie titled ‘Pocket Gangsters’, has Madhur Mittal, of Slumdog Millionaire and Million Dollar Arms fame, in the lead.  The Film is Produced by Vikram M Shah of Ciemme Entertainment Pvt. Ltd.

According to the sources, Shivangi was uncomfortable locking lips with Madhur. Coming from a close knit family, she was hesitant doing it. Madhur was taken aback by it in the beginning, but when she explained why, he understood and didn’t force her. But, director was adamant to have the scene as it was very crucial for the proceedings of the movie.

The movie based on kidnapping reaches its climax and that required both the actors to indulge in some tongue games. So, the scene was important. Plus, both of them are shown to be lovers in the movie so, it would seem a bit hollow if they didn’t exhibit emotions at that point, in the movie. Hence, the director was persistent.

Shivangi gave a thought to it and declared that she would do it, much to the delight of the crew members. Madhur was informed and the scene was to be shot. The movie being a one take movie, they knew they had to do it well in their first chance. So, when the director screamed action, both of them professionally mastered the shot. Everyone was pleased with their performance and quickly went on to shoot the other parts of the movie.
