Chennai: It took 36 takes for actor-composer G.V. Prakash Kumar and co-star Manisha Yadav to film a lip-lock scene from the upcoming Tamil romantic-comedy "Trisha Illana Nayanthara".
"Prakash was initially hesitant about the lip-lock scene. He wasn't comfortable with the idea. However, actress Manisha didn't have any qualms about it and instantly gave her a nod when she was narrated the scene. It took Prakash some motivation, but he eventually gave in," a source from the film's unit told IANS.
It took 36 takes because the scene was shot from different angles.
"The director wanted to capture the scene from the most appropriate angle in order to not make it look dirty. Hence, it took so many takes to lock the shot," the source said.
Directed by debutant Adhik Ravichandran, the film features Anandhi as one of the leading ladies, while veteran actor Simran Bagga has essayed a cameo.
Prakash's other films as actor includes "Ketta Payada Indha Karthi" and "Basha Engira Anthony". He has also signed a yet-untitled film with "Darling" director Sam Anton, and this project will be produced by Studio Green.
