55Kg Deepika Lifts 75Kg Imraan in Break Ke Baad

Usually, hero lifts his heroine one or another scene but Deepika Padukone has done something unusual in her forthcoming flick, Break Ke Baad and lifted her 75-kg hero on the back. Although, it was not easy for Deepika but she managed to do so after some training and rehearsals.

In a scene, Deepika lifts Imraan Khan to pose that Deepika’s character takes lead in the relationship with Imraan Khan. A source says,

“Considering Aaliyah leads this relationship, there are many instances of role reversals to depict that. “Danish felt that showing Aaliyah carrying Abhay was the perfect way to convey the drastic changes their relationship was undergoing. That’s why this particular scene is of great significance.”

Before lifting up 75 kg Imraan, 55kg Deepika underwent considerable training for about a fortnight prior to the shooting of the scene. In order to take precautions so that the actress may not suffer from back problem, she used belt. A source continues.

“To ensure that she didn’t suffer any back trouble while performing the scene, she wore a thick, wide belt as a preventive measure.”

Deepika also recalls the sequence as really “fun to shoot.” She says,

“Everyone on the sets was worried. But being an athlete, I was confident that I’d be able to carry Imran on my back without any problem.”

On the contrary, director Aslam calls it a complicated scene.

“It’s not easy to carry 75 kgs on your back. We didn’t want Deepika to get hurt, so we exercised caution. It took us two days to complete shooting this sequence, but the end result is brilliant.”
