Nikhil Bhambri starrer ‘Puncchbeat’ season 2 was not an easy shoot for the cast especially for the actor. Not just the sub-zero temperature but also getting slapped by Mrinmai Kolwalkar 30 times.
Talking about the same Nikhil Bhambri said, “Though I enjoyed my time during the shoot, there was 1 day which was very difficult. In a scene, Mrinmai Kolwalkar had to slap me, however, due to the continuous retakes my cheek was red at the end of the scene. To top it up, it was a mid-night shoot, and the temperatures were below sub-zero as were shooting in Uttarakhand.”
Further he said, “We gave almost over 30 takes for this one short, every time something or the other would go wrong. To get the scene right, I had told her to keep it real so that my reaction comes naturally. She was apologetic by the end of it, but all these things are a part and parcel of shoots and was taken in good spirits. Once the shoot was done, the entire team sat together and had a good laugh at it.”
Apart from Puncchbeat season 2, Nikhil is shooting a yet to be announced project.
