Mumbai, July 07: Showing intimate scenes on the big screen is not taboo in the film industry any more and filmmakers often include a good dose of it. But director Mohit Suri says shooting bedroom scenes can be a nightmare.
Suri, who has directed upcoming thriller “Murder 2”, a sequel to 2004 hit film “Murder”, has shot a few lovemaking scenes with the lead pair Emraan Hashmi and Jacqueline Fernandez.
“Lovemaking is the most difficult scene to shoot because there the director cannot show the actors what to do. You have to let the actors be and let them do their own thing,” the 30-year-old director said.
“Although a lot of people say it’s very easy to shoot for physically intimate scenes and it’s fun… that’s all untrue because it is no fun. It’s a very uncomfortable situation. It’s very difficult to shoot, even for the cameraman, because you don’t know in which direction the actor will go. Lighting is also an issue. You have to keep so many things in mind,” he added.
In order to make both Emraan and Jacqueline comfortable during the shots, Suri kept intimate scenes for the last schedule.
“I shot all intimate scenes in the end purposely so that Emraan and Jacqueline get to know each other and got that trust and faith in each other before. You can’t ask two people on the first day to do intimate scenes. It’s difficult.
“It’s important that the actors have a rapport before they do such scenes,” said Suri who is not new on the job – he has films like “Zehar”, “Kalyug”, “Woh Lamhe” and “Crook” that have bold scenes.
Released in 2004, director Anurag Basu’s “Murder” was one of the few films of that year to have bold content and Suri reveals that the sequel will also have a heavy dose of the same because that is the requirement of the story.
“Murder 2”, which has been produced under the banner of Vishesh Films, is slated to hit screens July 8.
