Actor Rajkummar Rao, who doesn't drink
in real life, consumed almost a full bottle of vodka for a scene in his
forthcoming film "Behen Hogi Teri".
A source said: "Rajkummar actually gulped down an almost full bottle of vodka for a scene in the film. It was a three-minute scene, but the makers and Raj were enjoying the scene so much that it went on from three minutes to 30 minutes and they kept rolling the cameras."
"Much to the surprise of the unit members, the shot turned out to be very humorous and real. Well that wasn't all! Rajkummar got drunk again while dubbing for his character to get into the mood and sound like a drunkard," the source added.
"Behen Hogi Teri" is about a man who falls in love with his childhood friend and neighbour, but the girl treats him like a brother.
Rajkummar said in a statement: "I don't drink in real life so when we had to do this particular scene, I just thought I should probably get drunk in order to make the scene authentic and the crew got really excited and they offered me all kinds of drinks to have."
