The actor adds that the scene between him and Shahid was one of the most extensive and expensive ones and was shot over a period of two, two and a half days. “I knew that there was so much money at stake, I had to do it.” Rajeev shares that Ali, the director was very very supportive of him and told him that they could do it later and that health comes first. Even the producer Himanshu echoed Ali’s sentiments but Rajeev couldn’t stay in his room without completing the sequence. The next day, he was up on set with a knee brace and with the help of body doubles and the team he finished the entire scene. That’s extremely painful and inspiring to hear at that same time, right?
