Mumbai, Dec 22 (IANS) Actor Rajeev Khandelwal says he had a sleepless night after reading the script of "Table No. 21", and he chose to do the film since he wanted to pass on the same feeling to the audience.

"What excited me was the premise in which the story has been told. Secondly, I don't normally read or hear such films. It is rare that you are not able to sleep after reading a script.

"But I had a sleepless night (after reading 'Table No.21'), and I thought I'm going to give sleepless nights to the audience," the 37-year-old said in an interview here Friday.

The movie also features actress Tena Desae, who has done some bold scenes in the film.

Tena says she was nervous about the kissing scene as she did not want it to look vulgar and cheap.

"The kissing scene was important to make sure it came out passionate and not sloppy. I wanted to make sure it comes out looking good," Tena said in an interview.

However, she admits it was not easy.

"It was a challenge because I am shy about these things and we were shooting on a street, which had 2,000 to 3,000 people watching us. I was freaking out," she said.

Rajeev and Tena play a newly married couple in the film.

Directed by Aditya Datt, "Table No. 21" will release Jan 4.
