Tahir Raj Bhasin has the knack of getting into the skin of his character and owning it. He wowed everyone with his brilliant debut as a villain in the super hit and highly acclaimed Mardaani and his next, Dangal director Nitesh Tiwari’s coming of age film Chhichhore, he will be seen essaying the role of a sports champion in an engineering college.

Tahir smoked 200 packets of green-tea cigarettes for his role in Chhichhore!

Tahir plays the role of Derek in Chhichhore. Derek was Nitesh’s real-life senior from engineering college. The real Derek was an extremely close friend of Nitesh and was a driven and passionate sportsman who excelled in whichever sporting discipline he competed. In the film, Derek will be shown as a chain smoker and the production team had to come up with a solution for Tahir who is a complete non-smoker!

Tahir confirms, “Derek, My character in Chhichhore, is a chain smoker. His cigarettes are a constant accessory in spite of being the college poster boy for sports. The problem was that I’m a non-smoker in real life. I have always been extremely health-conscious and I have never smoked and don’t encourage the habit of smoking. However, I had to play the part on the screen and look extremely convincing. I needed a solution and the art department came up with a brilliant idea. They repackaged 200 packets of cigarettes with organic green tea and basil which when smoked looks exactly like cigarette smoke on screen. Basically, all the tobacco was replaced to create herbal cigarettes!”
