Deepa Sahi makes actor strip!

The actor-turned-filmmaker made newcomer Jagrat Desai strip in -2°C temperature at Rohtang Pass

Jagrat Desai, who makes his debut in Bollywood with Deepa Sahi’s film Tere Mere Phere, had a freezing experience in Himachal Pradesh. A scene involved Jagrat and Sasha Goradia, who play a newly married couple, have a huge fight, and Jagrat’s task was to cheer up his newlywed bride. That sounded simple enough till he heard the plans of director Sahi. She wanted Jagrat to strip for the sequence in the freezing temperatures. Jagrat went numb just with the thought! Sasha also developed goose pimples thinking Deepa had some crazy tasks in store for her, too! Sahi wanted this comic scene to be absolutely wacky just like Jagrat’s character, but filled with love and romance as the young couple is out on their honeymoon trip. She came up with this cool idea that sent shivers down Jagrat’s spine.

Said Sahi: “We were supposed to do a song shoot in beautiful location of Rohtang Pass but I wanted to try something that is wacky with this young full of life couple. Seeing both of them in their warm coats gave me this weird thought – what if I ask them to take a dip in the water? But then I thought it was really unrealistic and hence the naughty idea of getting Jagrat to take off his trousers and shirt in a spur of moment and doing a jig to patao his wife.”

Newbie Jagrat had no choice but to perform it to the hilt for his taskmaster. “Putting up a brave act, I tried my best so that there were not many retakes. Fortunately the shot came out extremely well, but I will never be able to forget this freezing shoot,” he said.

“The movie has been shot in Himachal Pradesh and it was difficult in extremely low temperatures. Deepaji wanted me to strip for this scene which was being shot at Rohtang. When we reached the location the temperature was minus 2°C and I had to take off my T-shirt, drop my pants and perform a gig only in boxers. The wind felt as if it was piercing my body but all thanks to the Deepaji, who had ensured there were heavy woolens blankets and shawls to cover me up instantly,” he said.

“With the sound of Deepaji saying ‘cut’, the crew ran towards me and covered me. The bon fire and hot tea took care of me…. So apart from the physical challenge, the tough job was to be romantic and have a happy expression to please my love,” he said.

Sahi’s directorial debut Tere Mere Phere is a romantic road trip comedy with loads of action and thrill. The story unfolds in the picturesque valley of Himachal so most of its shooting happened in the beautiful mountain range. The film is releasing on September 30.
