Saif Ali Khan describes his experience of shooting for Kurbaan as “cold and depressing” and only good thing about the movie was that his girlfriend Kareena was always with him.
Saif says, “Kurbaan was hard work. In fact, the Philadelphia schedule was plain hell. It wasn’t anything like a picnic shooting for the film.”
“It gets dark there at 1600 hrs IST itself. Moreover, it’s so cold and at minus 10 degrees it can actually get really depressing. Since we were shooting in sync sound, it was extremely difficult to get the pitch and tone right while delivering our dialogues.”
Saif also reveals that he and Bebo were informed about last year’s Mumbai terror attack while shooting for Kurbaan, he says, “Because of that, it was so difficult to concentrate on the film’s shoot. Thankfully, Bebo (Kareena Kapoor) was there with me at that time but still both of us were very depressed.”
“We were shooting in a tube and that’s anything but fun. We had to shoot a subway sequence but being in a tube for hours at a stretch is like being in an underground prison. Really, it is very disorienting. Who says shooting for a film is like being in a picnic? Kurbaan certainly wasn’t one.”
Kurbaan releases on November 20th and starrs, Vivek Oberoi, Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor.
