Manju Warrier has only a few friends in the film industry and Kunchacko Boban is one among them. In a recent interview, Manju revealed that she has slapped Kunchacko multiple times.
Interestingly, the actress slapped her dear friend on the sets of their recently released movie Vettah, upon the insistence of late director Rajesh Pillai. Manju and Kunchacko Boban were filming an intense scene.
In the scene, Manju's character Sreebala IPS slaps Chackochan's character Melvin. Director Rajesh Pillai wanted the scene to create a deep impact, so asked Manju to slap Kunchacko Boban in real.
Manju was initially reluctant to accept the director's instructions, but Kunchacko Boban convinced her to slap him. The duo performed the same scene twice during the rehearsal session and finally once for the real take.
But, Kunchacko Boban's face was almost swollen when they completed the final take. Manju Warrier, who felt extremely guilty over the same, went on to apologize to her friend.
Vettah, which also stars Indrajith in a key role, is running successfully at the theatres. Kunchacko Boban has earlier worked with Manju Warrier in her comeback movie How Old Are You.
