Joseph Tornatore in KANK movie
In this film clip from the blockbuster Bollywood film Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna(KANK), the taboo love of lead actors Dev(Shahrukh Khan) and Maya (Rani Mukherjee) literally collide...into me. Playing a train commuter and slinging a backpack, I pass alongside the destined lovers as they finally unite in the movie's moving climax. Before the director opted for Rani to drop her purse on the train tracks before reuniting, her swinging pocketbook accidentally caught this background actor in the family jewels. On another take, their emotion spilled into me. This take was so good they used slow motion for dramatic effect.
Shahrukh Khan was once voted the most recognizeable face on the planet by Time magazine. Rani Mukherjee radiated elegance and beauty from morning until night. As for my part, my lovely wife chides that walking erect is not acting. When you don't bat an eyelash while being sterilized by a rogue purse, I beg to differ.
