Popular TV actor Nakuul Mehta is all set to make a comeback post PyaarKa Dard Hai which ended almost 2 years ago. The actor will be seen making his comeback with Gul Khan’s latest offering, Ishqbaaaz. The show for the very first time, brings to the audience the story of three brothers, Omkar, Rudra and Shivaay. The 3 brothers are the most eligible bachelors in town and are heirs to the first business family in India; The Oberoi’s. Mehta, will be seen playing the role of the oldest brother, Shivaay Singh Oberoi on the show.
With the summers on in full swing, it often gets difficult for the actors to shoot under the sun. But turns out that Nakuul found a rather peculiar way while shooting for a promo for the show. The actor’s character, Shivaay Singh Oberoi is a cut throat businessman for whom his business and the family lineage means the most. Given the character, the look for Nakuul too consists of blazers and suits.
And while a particular sequence required the three brothers; Omkara, Rudra and Shivaay to unwind on the pool side, once the take was okayed, Nakuul took the liberty to jump into the pool, take a dip and feel cool. ““We were shooting this sequence bang in the middle of May and by noon the sun was top’ish, tearing apart our heads. It was difficult but the minute it was done, before the director could even call ‘pack up’, having had enough, i jumped into the pool with my blazer on that to in character as Shivaay. Only later did I realize that I had the entire costume department and crew staring at me for what i did. Although, at that moment, all i did was smile sheepishly and then went on to enjoy some respite from heat.”
