Nikhil Dwivedi, who plays a small town outlaw, literally had to pay a price on the challenges of working in the realistic 'rehearse and shoot' mode in TAMANCHEY. And in a lighter vein, to have a strict visual director, a first in Bollywood, truly didn't help his cause further.

Recently Nikhil Dwivedi and the cast of TAMANCHEY were in the picturesque town of Tehri Garhwal in Uttarakhand. And whilst shooting in the local Kulna market near Tehri Lake, Nikhil had to flick some bananas from the fruit vendor on the sly.

Now many are not aware that Nikhil in real life is quite smooth with the sleight of hand tricks, and in true 'Rajnikant style', flicked the bananas from his left hand behind to his right hand without looking behind. True that was the easy bit for him since he was an expert on that trick. But when he had to eat the bananas was the tricky bit.

He had to get into the, rehearse and shoot mode with the extras of the film, since they used the actual Garhwali's on the street to give it an authentic feel. And every time he ate the bananas, the watchful firangi visual director noticed something amiss with the extras and they had to shoot it again and again. And the method actor Nikhil is, he lost count of the bananas he had to gorge and finally the shot was completed to the satisfaction of the director and the visual director.

At the end to maintain the authenticity, Nikhil was literally forced to feed himself and felt as if he needed to throw up. He was stunned when he was told by producer Suryaveer that he had gorged over 75 bananas!

And this time the producer did not seemed to mind, since the crew had a hearty laugh over it!
