Gauahar Khan breaks down on the sets of Playground Digital Cinema’s next short Peanut Butter!
For the first time, Gauahar (28-year-old Priya Mathur) will be seen playing the mother of an 18-year-old in the coming-of-age story which revolves around her challenges.
Gauahar, who has stepped out of her comfort zone to portray the challenging role was very touched when she has narrated the story and decided to take up the film without even a pre-shoot rehearsal.
Since the shoot of such scenes is emotionally grueling, after a sequence which was intense, Gauahar broke down on the sets. She couldn’t hold back her emotions as she got too involved in her character.
On the day of the shoot, said a crew member, “Gauahar performed exceptionally well and was so much into the character that she cried naturally, as a mother would.
Because of her deep involvement in the character, the entire unit felt what she was trying to emote as she felt the pain and sorrow of Priya Mathur. Her cry left the entire unit in teary eyes.”
The short Peanut Butter is available to watch on Playground Digital Cinema from 6th March onwards!
