No duplicate used for me in ‘Chandrakanta’: Kritika
Mumbai– Actress Kritika Kamra says the makers of fantasy drama TV show “Prem Ya Paheli Chandrakanta” have never had to use a duplicate because of her unavailability.
Kritika earlier said that she has asked the makers of the Life OK show to allow her an off on Sundays as being a “single woman living in Mumbai” she was not able to focus on her personal duties.
“I like to take Sundays off, but not at the cost of quality of my scenes. They have never had to use a duplicate because of my unavailability,” Kritika posted on Twitter on Wednesday.
Talking about his working experience with the actress, Nikhil Sinha, producer of “Prem Ya Paheli Chandrakanta”, said: “Kritika Kamra is the most hardworking girl I have ever come across. She is very punctual and disciplined. She gives perfect shot for all her scenes with utmost dedication and grace, be it an action sequence or a romantic scene. The work is never suffered because of her.”
Sneha Wagh pays ‘fine’ on ‘Sher-e-Punjab…’ set
Actress Sneha Wagh, who plays Raj Kaur in “Sher-e-Punjab Maharaja Ranjit Singh”, treated the entire unit with ice-cream as her phone suddenly rang in the middle of an important sequence.
To ensure a smooth and systematic flow during shoots, the makers have come up with a rule that mobile phones must be turned off on the sets, a source said.
If anyone’s phone — be it the producer, director, actor or crew — is found ringing, as a punishment one has to pay Rs 500 penalty. When the amount is sufficient, there’s a treat to all, the source added.
Sneha had one such experience too.
“The penalty which I had to pay was Rs 500, but I decided to treat the entire unit to ice-creams.”
Sneha says, “A lesson learnt from the incident is now my phone is always on silent mode while we are shooting.”
