Kaalakaandi is an upcoming 2018 Indian black comedy film starring Saif Ali Khan. The film is directed and written by Akshat Verma and is produced by Rohit Khattar and Ashi Dua. Isha Talwar who share romantic relationship with Saif Ali Khan, recollects the day they shot the underwater kissing scene.
“Unlike some fancy location, we shot the scene in a pool in Thane. I had to undergo a day’s of training in diving as Saif is already a certified diver. After which I did a test run in the scuba suit and oxygen cylinder.” With massive lights and an entire camera team floating around them like fishes, by the time the shot for the scene it was night time, Isha adds, “We had to stay in and under water for quite some time. It was getting cold and even though we had the lights, the visibility reduced under water. Managing to breathe in between takes from an oxygen cylinder and keeping the coordination going was a task, but we managed to nail the shot in three takes.”
Kaalakandi is set to release on 12th January 2018
