The festival season's most anticipated release Kidnap sees two of the lead actors caught in an unusual situation. Typically, Bollywood heroes and heroines are caught singing romantic duets. But Kidnap essentially traces the complex relation between a kidnaper and his victim, leaving little scope for a budding romance in the initial reels of the film.
What made this situation more difficult to enact was the fact that Imran Khan and Minissha Lamba got along like a house on fire from the first day of the shoot! At times, the director Sanjay Gadhvi would have to intervene and keep the actors away from each other for an entire day especially if they needed to shoot an angry scene. On one such day, Imran insisted on practising a knife stunt with Minissha before the actual shoot. The sport that Ms. Lamba is known to be, she readily relented and even suffered cuts on her fingers while rehearsing. But that didn't stop them from giving a bone–chilling take in the end.
Of course, Minissha still chides Imran about her injury by saying that he hurt her only to avenge his loss in a card game they played on the sets!
Being released worldwide by Indian Films - Studio 18, Kidnap will be out in cinemas on October 2.
