Mumbai: It seems newbie Imran Khan is highly inspired by his uncle – Mr Perfectionist Aamir Khan, for the actor recently took sixteen tight slaps from Katrina on his quest for perfect execution of slap scene in ‘Mere Brother Ki Dulhan.’

Filming for an emotionally charged scene in Yash Raj’s latest film, the shoot turned out into a slap fest as an innovative Imran chose realistic portrayal of a tight slap.

Apparently, the script required only a single slap but it was Imran, who insisted Katrina to slap him for real, not once but sixteen times.

Talking to a news daily on Imran’s weird request, Katrina said, "Left to me, I`d have done just one fake slap and moved on. But Imran insisted that I do it realistically. Imran even called his `boy` to count the number of slaps. It had to be 16 tight slaps, no more and no less. I don`t know why he wanted to be slapped that exact number of times."

Even though Katrina isn’t proud of the pain she gave to Imran, she’s quite happy about the authenticity of the slap as she added, "It`s the most authentic screen-slap audiences will ever see".

Hmm…just wondering had it been a kissing scene, what Imran would have suggested to Katrina?
