Gauhar Khan is known for her films like ‘Game’ and ‘Rocket Singh Salesman’ and after a brief hiatus on stage, she is now back on the big screen. The ADC spoke to the tall actress about her new outing. Here is what she has to say...
What is your role in the film?
I play a girl called Kavya from Rajeev Khandelwal’s past in 'Fever', who knows all about him but Rajeev has lost his memory and she helps him, going against all odds and even risking her life.
What are your expectations from the film?
In all my previous films, everyone used to ask me the length of my role and the star opposite me and like Rocket Singh, they used to ask whether I was cast opposite Ranbir Kapoor! I used to defend myself that I am in the frame right from the start to the beginning. In this movie, I can say that I am the leading lady though there are two sultry foreigner girls as part of the cast.
What was it like to work on the film?
We shot in freezing temperatures of Switzerland and we had to struggle to keep ourselves warm, especially during intimate scenes. It was very difficult though, he made us really comfortable and was absolutely affable to work with. The foreigners too, were co-operative.
Did the surfeit of kissing scenes make you uncomfortable?
I am an actor and should do whatever the director tells me to do for the betterment of the film and since it’s an espionage spy thriller, it goes with the genre of the film.
