“There were YouTube things,” Kunal Kemmu on making Go Goa Gone scene to seem real
The hit film, Go Goa Gone has completed 8 years since it first hit the box-office. On it’s anniversary, the fabulous cast Kunal Kemmu, Vir Das and Anand Tiwari open up about their journey with the film. Kunal has said that the thing that surprises him is that their directors are not smokers and still managed to pull the film off. Moreover, the actor says that he didn’t know the meaning of the phrase, ‘ Babaji ki Booti.’
The actor revealed to the sources that they crew took to YouTube while shooting for ‘rolling a doob.’ Everyone on set had a doubt of how they were going to make it look authentic. He says that everyone understands the scene and also they’re singing ‘Babaji ki Booti’ there still is a disconnect that is unable to bridge the gap. He also says that he as an actor, couldn’t connect to the scene while crafting the song and still fails to make the connect.
Vir has an awesome experience to share. He said that after the film, there were people who approached him to smoke wit them when he was on tours. According to his anecdote, there was an impact on young kids who invited him to smoke ‘Babaji Ki Booti’ with them. To this call, he replied by saying that he doesn’t smoke because of the fear of death and even if he did it would be unethical for him to smoke with kids that young, about 13 years younger to him.
