Anjali Patil — She has delieverd several award winning performance in her films and has earned rave reviews for her acting. And now, with her latest release 'Kaala', she has become famous as a fiery young lady who has raised many eyebrows with her breathtaking performance.
She eesayed the role of Puyal, a character that has become instant famous and has been most discussed aspects of the film. In one of the sequences in the film, Puyal, during a protest, gets stripped by policemen. But instead of covering herself and picking up her clothes, she picks up a stick and launches an attack on the cops there.
In an exclusive chat with The News Minute, Anjali shared her experience while shooting for the scene.
"We were shooting in the middle of the night and I was probably the only woman on the sets. There was an assistant and we were surrounded by a mob of 500-600. But you know, I come from very strong training. I've spent 7 years in drama school. So the things we're trained to do make us practical and professional. While doing the scene, I had only one job - to make it look very normal. Because if it is not normal and casual when I shoot, my co-actors, the cops would feel uncomfortable and we would not get good shots. So it boils down to getting the shots right and getting good performances on camera," she said.
She revealed that she had an option of using a body double for the scene, but she decided to shoot the sequence herself.
"We had a body double who was wearing exactly my clothes. But I didn't use him. I didn't like the idea of someone else doing it for me. I had to show them how to do it - especially the police guys - if you hold me in the air like this and if you pull my pants like this, it's going to be easy," she told the website.
She goes on to say that the love and admiration she has been getting from everyone is overwhelming.
"I can totally understand that. I've been getting messages from boys also but the amount of messages I've been getting from girls, women, it's so fulfilling. It's amazing that girls want to see this, girls want to be this, more than their shame and so-called womanhood which is pushed on us," she told.
