GO GOA GONE: Saif Ali Khan's bonfire nights with Kunal Khemu and Vir Das

By Glamsham Editorial

The days were grueling, shooting in the remote locations of Goa. But the nights were just perfect for actors Kunal Khemu, Vir Das and Anand Tiwari to let their inner creativity loose almost daily. Watching the boys bond, it was hard to tell that it was their first time working together. They got together like they had known each other forever! And the bonfire nights were the perfect platform for the three of them to come up with impromptu songs based on the happenings during the day. During those late night parties where GO GOA GONE crew had fun with the trio, it was Saif Ali Khan who helped them in improvising their off the cuffs songs and made sure that they will also be entertained after all.

"After those late night parties, next day Saif used to take Kunal, Vir and Anand out for dinner and cocktails. You may not believe but we partied almost every alternative night during the entire shooting schedule. Kunal, Vir and Anand were really enthusiastic enough to party till late and start their next shooting day very early," informed one of the production guys.

"There hasn't been a concept like this on Indian screens; the film is a great big bundle of action and fun. Audiences will be blown away for sure. The entire unit tried to put in their best, and we naturally wanted to put in our best too not just on screen but off screen too. We started with making up situational songs inspired by the happening of the day, one day. Everyone loved it so much that we continued this till the last day of the shoot. We sang, strumming our guitars and everyone would be in splits. We would go on for hours, late into the night, even though we had to get up at the crack of dawn the next day!" says Vir.

The songs were hilarious and often risque and the team would laugh uproariously at each line sung. "Dan Macarthur, our DOP from Australia, and Jordi Cirbian, our sound specialist from Spain, who are musicians in their own right, would also chip in and keep the team in splits," recalls Kunal.

Directors Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK say, "The three guys and their chemistry with Saif was a treat to watch. They were a riot both on and off the screen. We know Vir is known for his stand-up acts, but Kunal and Anand have this straight-faced humour that is very funny. They kept us in splits throughout the shoot and the bromance between the three guys is one of the highlights of the film. Each of them are amazing in their own way - Kunal is one of the most talented young actors out there - has a great range, and he is especially hilarious in this film. Vir, of course, has great sense of humor and comic timing, and Anand is going to be that big discovery in the film."

This zombie comedy has friendship at its core but not in a conventional way. Vir, Kunal and Anand have an atypical friendship in the film. It's light hearted, urban and based on current youth, yet it is not frivolous.

Saif Ali Khan and Dinesh Vijan have produced this film under their banner Illuminati Films along with Sunil Lulla of Eros International. The film stars actors Saif, Kunal, Vir, Anand and Puja Gupta in key roles. The film is ready to release on May 10, 2013.
