Anushka dives into murky waters

Every actor knows that director Vishal Bhardwaj can go to any lengths to bring his characters alive. Anushka Sharma experienced this during the shooting of Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola. Vishal wanted his heroine to rise out of the water like a James Bond heroine on her very first shot.
If it was for any other film or any other location, they would have certainly chosen a swimming pool. But since the shooting of this film was taking place in a small village of Haryana, all they could find was a small pool of muddied water.
Vishal decided that Anushka would rise from the waters of this pool. One can imagine what reaction Anushka would've given to the situation as she had never faced such a situation in her life. Everyone on the set felt that Anushka would initially refuse to do the scene. But realizing the situation, Anushka not only proved everyone wrong but also did the scene well. Interestingly Anushka did the scene in one take.
Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola which stars Imran Khan, Anushka Sharma and Pankaj Kapoor is slated for release next year on Jan 11.
