Abhay Deol’s co-star Shamata Anchan, who shot to fame with the television show Everest, considers herself lucky to have got the opportunity to work with Deol in her debut film, The Field. Shamata will play the role of Abhay’s wife in the film. The actress shares how his support was a great comfort when they were shooting romantic sequences.
“I was slightly nervous given that it was my first film, but Abhay made me [feel] comfortable. He made sure that we discuss the scenes before facing the camera and that really helped. I play the role of his wife and there were few romantic scenes too. I was not really comfortable doing them but Abhay came up to me and explained how things work. I feel we share a good on-screen chemistry,” says Shamata.
Shamata also can’t stop praising Abhay’s acting expertise. “I have always been a fan of Abhay’s films. So, when I was offered the role opposite him, I just grabbed it without thinking twice. Even when I was not shooting, I was on the set watching him enact his part as there was so much to learn,” she adds.
The film has been shot in Mumbai and Delhi. It also stars Ronit Roy, Neeraj Kabi and the The Mummy actor, Brendan Fraser.
