Seems like replacing Abhay Deol with Vivek Oberoi is already paying rich dividends for the makers of Gyarah Chalis Ki Last Metro, which would be directed by Sanjay Khanduri and produced by Amit Chandra of Invincible Entertainment.
The actor has been winning the crew’s hearts with his passion and dedication for his work. One such incident has been disclosed to us by a source close to the production team, apparently one of the crucial and hilarious scenes in the film require the protagonist to strip down to his boxers to save his life. Not only that, even the boxers will end up being ripped out and the character will end up revealing considerable amount of skin.
Moreover, the scene will be shot in the midst of college going students in a Delhi Hostel, and not on a set with actors. This is unlike many other films where there is only a limited crew allowed on set for scenes like these as they might make an actor uncomfortable to perform.
Before narrating the above said scene to Vivek, director Sanjay Khanduri was of the opinion that Vivek might be uneasy enacting the required scenes so he decided to use a body double and make do with cheat shots. However Sanjay was taken aback when Vivek refused the body double and insisted on performing the scene himself. The source also adds that Sanjay also had a scene in the first film where Abhay went topless, but it took a lot of convincing to persuade Abhay to do the scene and he could only manage to convince the lead for a lip lock, hence Sanjay was skeptical about the stripping scene on account of his past experience and felt that Vivek would also object to baring it all for this scene in this film.
Much to the delight of the director, Vivek not only agreed to go by the script but is also willing to shed all the bulk that he had put on for Zilla Ghaziabad and get a lean look to fit his role in the film. The director who had heard a lot about Vivek’s sincerity and dedicated approach towards his work was highly impressed by the actor when he realized that he was not only willing to do ‘compromising’ scenes without any hesitation but also was ready to shed weight at the earliest since the film goes on floor soon.
