Ram Gopal Varma's NOT A LOVE STORY is currently making good buzz for itself. Now that the film is less than a month away from release, its lead actress Mahie Gill says that she still gets goose bumps just thinking about the days when she shot in an apartment for days at stretch.
"We were shooting in the same building where the murder had taken place and trust me, it isn't a comforting thought," says Mahie who plays an aspiring actress in the film, 'In fact I remember how once our lift opened right in front of the same flat where Neeraj Grover was supposedly cut into pieces. Trust me, I was so scared and my feet froze. What continues to intrigue me though is that since this apartment was so tiny, how come no one even heard a single a single cry of pain when he was being killed. It is very surprising."
Today as she looks back at the entire experience of having worked in the film, Mahie feels that playing Anusha Chawla was the toughest act of her career so far.
"How can doing a film like this be easy? After all it is difficult to get into the skin of the character since I haven't committed a murder in real life," she sighs, "Sometimes it used to become so difficult to even think rationally. I used to get all bogged down and my brains would stop functioning. Actors say that they become emotionally drained after working in so and so film. I can say NOT A LOVE STORY is one such film of mine. Mera iss film mein khoon paseena lag gaya hai."
Starring Deepak Dobriyal and Ajay Gehi as the male lead protagonists, NOT A LOVE STORY releases all over on 19th August.
