During the shooting of a sequence for Wake Up Sid, Konkona
Sen Sharma had a horrifying experience. The actress, who fears
mice, had to shoot with a real one on the insistence of director
At first when Ayaan mentioned shooting the scene, which would
involve a rat crawling over her body, she thought they would either
use a fake rat or her dummy. But they brought in a real mouse,
coloured it black with shoe polish and set it on her. She covered
herself with two quilts and hurriedly shot for the scene while
being frightened to death.
Konkona feels that"s one experience she will never forget and
never wants to repeat it ever again.
