But it wasn’t the technique of co-star Rahul Bose that made her swoon – it was the working conditions.
Sherawat and Bose were shooting the scene for …side effects under water, said Choudhary.
“We didn’t realize the water was so cold,” he said. His remedy had its own side effects.
“Mallika started shivering, so we decided to give her some brandy. But the cold and brandy turned out to be a potent combination. And while shooting the kissing scene Mallika just passed out,” he said.
Sherawat shot to fame with her debut film Khwahish, which made headlines with a record 17 kissing scenes.
She has since won millions of fans and critics with a string of scantily clad appearances, including a role with Hong Kong action movie hero Jackie Chan.
