Acting is no ‘cake’ walk!

New Delhi: For everyone who loves romantic movies, Joe Rajan brings this monsoon his romantic flick ‘Luv U Soniyo’. The newbies Tanuj Virwani and Miss India (2010) Neha Hinge will be seen in this upcoming romantic flick, which is shot in Mumbai and Goa.

It so happened that one day the team was shooting a birthday sequence in the interiors of Goa. It was a 3-day-long scene which required an exquisite cake, lots of balloons and a nice celebration mode. As it was the interiors a new cake could not be carried to the sets each day as it was customized one and too much time would be wasted in travelling to and fro.

Director Joe suggested to use the same cake and informed Neha that she would just have to pretend to eat it and her side profile would be captured!

It was the third day of the shooting and while all the other shots were canned the cake being cut was supposed to be shot and the white cake had already fermented, but still Neha being a sport took a small bite and shot for her scene, but Tanuj who is quite mischievous & loves to play pranks with his leading lady filled her mouth with a big piece of the fermented cake, and all this while the camera was rolling informs a source close to the team

When quizzed Neha about it, Neha gushed and said, “Tanuj is such a brat he put the entire piece of cake in my mouth and it was so sour, I could not even do anything because the camera was rolling and it was the last shot as the cake had already been cut! So, I had to gulp it down, and ended up with a bad stomach the next day."

Well, kudos to Neha for being such a sport.
