The Kai Po Che actor, who is portraying the real life lawyer and human rights activist Shahid Azmi in Hansal Mehta’s Shahid says he was emotionally drained after doing the nude scene
Rajkumar Yadav claims it was his idea to do the scene nude.
“I am very proud of the film… It has been made with a lot of love and honesty. It was an emotionally draining experience. There were moments where I had to push myself down into his psyche and it took me some time to get out of it. The scene was never planned to be like that… It was a very normal one on paper but there was something missing. So I told Hansal that I should be absolutely naked in the interrogation scene. My reason was to feel the embarrassment, the mental pain of the character.”
