Recently, while shooting for a particular scene in the film, Bhumi Pednekar, the heroine of the movie, was required to slap Ayushmann. To get the scene right, Bhumi had to slap Ayushmann almost 20 times.
After a couple of retakes the director and crew realized that Ayushmann's ear had turned red and was sore with the constant slapping. The actor took the slaps in his stride and continued with the shoot.
Spokesperson confirmed the news and added, 'It was an interesting scene which was being shot. Bhumi was asked to give Ayushmann a real slap so that it looks right onscreen. But to get it right we had to do some retakes.'
Directed by Maneesh Sharma, DUM LAGA KE HAISHA is all set to release on April 24, 2015.
