The trailer of Mili gives us a glimpse of how tough it would have been for Janhvi Kapoor to stay in the freezer at for so long. In fact, the actress revealed that she shot in the freezer for over 20 days in extreme minus temperatures as low as -18 degrees for them. During this conversation, Janhvi spoke about director Mathukutty Xavier’s decision to get a rat on the sets of the film.
Speaking about the animal was treated better than her to Bollywood Hungama, Janhvi said, “I must say that they exercised a lot of sensitivity with the rat and not so much with me. Because when I was shooting in the freezer, sometimes we'd be there in for hours and we'd have a 15-20 minute long takes in the freezer. After that, I'd come out and just like collapse. But when the rat came, it was the star of this set. Everybody was like ‘the rat is gonna feel really cold, so we can't do like long shorts’, ‘in one minute we'll have to cut because the rat needs to relax’. I was like the rat needs to relax? Your actor is dying!” she laughed.
Readers would be aware that Mili is a remake of the Malayalam film Helen. The film is slated to release on November 4 and also stars Sunny Kaushal and Manoj Pahwa in a pivotal role.
