While we have seen many a time when real life is imitated in art, i.e cinema, on the sets of Vipul Shah’s next film directed by Nishikanth Kamat, Force, a fake wedding between the lead actors John Abraham and Genelia D’Souza almost made them real life husband and wife, thanks to a very sincere yet confused priest.
As per the original Tamil film Kaakha Kaakha, which starred the now real life couple Suriya Sivakumar and Jyothika, a wedding sequence was shot at an old temple in Malshej Ghat. The priest set to do the sequence unfortunately had some difficulty understanding that it was a fake wedding. “It was a multi-camera set-up and so we needed to have minimum shots. However whenever Nishikant Kamath would say cut, the pandit would not stop. Finally after the sixth phera someone from the unit realized that the mantras were real and if not stopped John and Genelia would be actually married. So, they were stopped before the final round.” sources told the Mumbai Mirror. John and Genelia were completely oblivious to the proceedings and when they were told, they couldn’t contain their laughter.
Force is expected to be released in July this year.
