The director while speaking with IANS, shared that the famous scene from the Cannes return ‘Masaan’, in which Vicky’s character says, “Ye saala dukh kaahe khatam nahi hota be (why doesn’t the sorrow end)?”, was improvised by Vicky and that too when he the actor was purposely drunk in line with his character of Deepak.
Talking to IANS, Neeraj said, “It was an independent films, we didn’t have much budget so, the controlled conditions on set were very few.”
There’s one shot in the sequence wherein a train in a very shallow depth is passing in the background and Vicky sings the opening lines from the song ‘Tu kisi rail si guzarti hai’.
The director said despite being drunk, Vicky improvised on this bit and it just propelled the whole scene.
Neeraj told IANS: “Vicky was drunk during that scene and he kept saying sorry for his actions although he did nothing wrong. It was a creative call for him to get drunk, and he performed exceptionally well”.
