Discomfort or uneasiness in an intimate scene can be spotted by anyone on screen. Hence, in today’s time an intimacy co-ordinator is always a part of the crew who helps in making intimate scenes look effortless with no awkwardness between the actors. Nishant Dahiya and Anupriya Goenka showcased an incredible level of comfort with each other, allowing their characters to come alive in ways that felt truly authentic. Anupriya Goenka shares about how she went about shooting the intimacy scenes for Sultan on Delhi
Talking about the same, Anupriya Goenka said, “Nishant and I are very committed actors and we were both comfortable and took the intimate scenes head on. We just knew that we had to do it and give it our best shot so we didn’t discuss much about it. There was not much prep that went in the process apart from working on our own characters, sometimes together and sometimes individually. We had an intimacy workshop that really helped us. Aastha was really nice and appreciative. However between Nishant and me there was never awkwardness and we were more focused on the scenes and not being worried about the intimate part of it. He is very comfortable to work with and very collaborative. We would talk and discuss how we wanted to approach a scene and we were always doing it from an emotional or the layered part of the characters. The intimacy part of it came as a byproduct of the story and the other scenes.”
Sultan of Delhi is set to stream, 13th October, 2023 onwards, exclusively on Disney+ Hotstar
