Shahid visits an ENT surgeon


Apart from Shahid, Priyanka’s kissing scene, ‘Kaminay’ is in news for another interesting reason. Shahid Kapur is playing a dual character in Vishal Bharadwaj’s ‘Kaminay’ where he needs to stammer in one role and in other part, he needs to lisp. To understand the two speech defects, Shahid visited an ENT Surgeon, Dr Prabodh Karnik. Vishal Bharadwaj wanted his actor to get into the skin of the character and so he took Shahid to a surgeon.

Confirming the story, Dr Karnik told, "I know Vishal Bharadwaj. He wanted to know why people stammer and how we evaluate and treat them. We gave them all the information that they were looking for."

Shahid confirmed this and said, "Yes, I met Dr Karnik. Vishal is a filmmaker who likes to stick as close as possible to reality. Meeting Dr Karnik helped us a lot. It was a good learning experience. My object was just to make it as believable as possible."

Speaking about his role, Shahid said, "Kaminey has been a very challenging experience. I wouldn't say I have a better understanding of speech impaired people that would take some time I think."
