What you didn't know about Kaminey

We've got Kaminey in store for you in the evening but before you go ahead with preparing the popcorn and coffee, do take a look at some of the trivia about the film that you were not aware about.
Besides, another handy warning would be - keep the eateries and beverages at a distance while the movie is going on because there are chances of you spilling them once "Dhan-Te-Nan" begins to play.
Now, we all know that the film was made by Vishal Bharadwaj and it features Priyanka Chopra and Shahid Kapur, who plays a double role, but you didn’t know this:
- While shooting for Kaminey the duo, Priyanka Chopra and Shahid Kapur, fell off a bike; the accident took place in Pune while riding downhill. The scene required Shahid Kapoor to ride pillion while Priyanka was to the ride the bike. Unfortunately, the slope was slightly muddy and it caused them to skid, and making matters worse the bike fell on top of them.
- On another occasion, Priyanka Chopra shocked us all by being yet another celebrity to hide herself in public by using a “burkha.” Priyanka had to attend an award ceremony at NCPA, Nariman Point, Mumbai, she obviously wouldn’t reach from one end of the city to other, on time, in a car; so, she decided to travel by train. There was no way that she could be seen in the train and the best option she had was to hide in a “burkha”; at Churchgate station the organizers sent a car to get her picked up.
- As for Shahid Kapur, he was really put to the test in this film. He worked on his voice for six months and took lessons in stammering from an ENT specialist to do justice to the role. For the dance sequence of the song "Dhan-Te-Nan", Bharadwaj did not get the help of a choreographer; Shahid was just asked to "dance with the song but not to do any (dance) steps in it."
- And now, about the kissing scene; initially, neither was Priyanka willing to kiss Shahid onscreen nor was it mentioned in the script. However, the director felt the film was getting clichéd and he requested Priyanka to oblige but she was not very keen. Finally, when Shahid said he would only do the scene if Priyanka was comfortable with it, the latter fell for his chivalry and agreed.
