‘Trisha Illana Nayanthara’: Manisha gives 36 lip-lock takes


It took 36 takes to shot the lip-locking scene of G.V. Prakash Kumar and co-star Manisha Yadav for the upcoming film, Tamil romantic-comedy ‘Trisha Illana Nayanthara’.

As per report, Prakash was at first uncomfortable to shoot the lip-locking scene but later he decided to go for it. “Prakash was initially hesitant about the lip-lock scene. He wasn’t comfortable with the idea. However, Manisha didn’t have any qualms about it and instantly gave her a nod when she was narrated the scene. It took Prakash some motivation, but he eventually gave in,” a source from the film’s unit told IANS.

The 36 takes were shot from different angles so that the kissing scene might not look vulgar.

“The director wanted to capture the scene from the most appropriate angle in order to not make it look dirty. Hence, it took so many takes to lock the shot,” the source said.

To be directed by debutant Adhik Ravichandran, the film features Anandhi as one of the leading ladies, while veteran actor Simran Bagga has will play a cameo. The film is expected to have some adult content.
