When Vikram was helped by Abhishek Bachchan
Once you are on a film project, you tend to consider your team just like family members. And our stars are pretty good at putting their fellow colleagues at ease during the making of their film. Let us tell you an interesting incident related to this, which happened behind the scenes of Mani Ratnam’s ‘Raavan’…
According to sources, an important sequence was being shot involving Vikram and Bollywood star Abhishek Bachchan. Here Vikram was supposed to climb down a 2000 feet high cliff. However, the actor said to be suffering from vertigo problem, a fact unknown to the team.
Being a thorough professional, Vikram did not outright refuse to do the shot, but his anxiety while doing the rehearsals was sensed by Abhishek, with whom he shares a great working relationship.
Although he was not required for the shot, Abhishek stayed on to guide his co-star, by keeping himself out of the frame all the while. He went ahead by climbing down the mountains and asked Vikram to follow his act. Thus, showing him how the shot should be done. Vikram, who was feeling much more relaxed about the whole thing, gave a perfect shot; sources concluded.
Hmm, co-star in need is a friend indeed… Leave alone the film’s team; even we are impressed with Abhishek’s helpful gesture…
