Ranveer Singh and Sonakshi Sinha in 'Lootera'
In the recent interview, Ranveer Singh started talking about how he prepared for his role in Lootera and he admitted that he actually stapled his stomach and went through the entire process just to portray the pain he goes through for one of the scenes.
"I didn’t know at that time when I was making that choice for Lootera. You operate from a place where you are not comfortable with your craft, a place of insecurity and nervousness and you tend to do a lot more to achieve a certain effect... sometimes to the degree of harming yourself. I wouldn’t do it now as I know that there is a more efficient way of doing it. Back then, I am thinking to myself: ‘I have never been shot, now I am going to get shot. So how am I going to depict a real sort of pain on screen?" he revealed.
