Atul Kulkarni says the crew wondered whether she'll have to go to the hospital in between the shots.
As A Thursday, directed by Behzad Khambata and starring Yami Gautam, Neha Dhupia and Atul Kulkarni, slowly edges closer to its release, Kulkarni has now opened up about working with Dhupia, who was pregnant during the filming.
Speaking in an interview with Hindustan Times, the actor said, “I wonder how she pulled it off because she was so pregnant. I mean, we were all wondering whether she'd have to go to the hospital in between the shots. Or whether she will have to go the same day after her shoot.”
He also said that he admires Dhupia and that she was going through so much and yet she was doing action scenes for the movie in the rain. He added that he hugged Dhupia one day on the sets and told her that he admired her as a professional.
A Thursday, written and directed by Behzad Khambata, is an edge-of-the-seat crime drama. The movie sees Yami Gautham playing a playschool teacher named Naina Jaiswal, who takes 16 kindergarteners hostage.
The thriller is also bankrolled by Ronnie Screwala and Premnath Rajagopalan under the banners of RSVP Movies and Blue Monkey Films, respectively. The thriller also stars Karanvir Sharma, Maya Sarao, Kalyanee Mulay, and Boloram Das, among others.
Atul Kulkarni was last seen in the psychological thriller Koi Jaane Na, directed by Amin Hajee and starring Kunal Kapoor and Amyra Dastur. The National Award-winning actor will be seen playing a police officer in Khambata's film, A Thursday.
A Thursday, which has impressed fans after the release of its trailer, will start streaming on Disney+ Hotstar from February 17, 2022.
