New Delhi, May 27 (IANS) For a certain scene in Sunny Deol-directed "The Man", Shilpa Shetty had to slap her co-star Sudhanshu Pandey. And if the latter is to be believed, the actress was very reluctant to do so.
"It was an emotional scene where I was supposed to console her and she was required to slap me in a fit of rage. But Shilpa was so reluctant and scared. She had to be literally convinced to slap me to get the shot right," Sudhanshu, a singer, model and actor, told IANS.
Sudhanshu said that he had to ultimately hold her hand and make her slap him to be more comfortable with the shot. "It was funny as she still couldn't do it. But since she had no option, she did it very lightly," he quipped.
The actor, who featured in Sanjay Gupta's film "Dus Kahaniyaan", was in the capital to attend the launch of an All Sports Bar.
Year 2008 has proved to be lucky for Sudhanshu, who became a father for the second time earlier this month and also has some big banner films lined up for release.
Talking about his forthcoming projects, Sudhanshu said: "'Alibaug', 'The Man' and 'Singh is King' are in the pipeline and I am really excited."
Sudhanshu, a former member of the music group Band of Boys, has sung in Sanjay Gupta's "Alibaug", where he plays a business tycoon.
"Yes, I have sung in 'Alibaug'. It was Sanjay (Gupta) who dragged me into it and the experience was fantastic," he said, making it clear that he would never get associated with a music band, however.
The actor, who calls himself a "simple, focussed and a family man", is looking for a name for his newborn son. "It has become difficult to decide on a good name."
