Surveen Chawla suffered from a temporary nervous breakdown while shooting for Hate Story 2.
Surveen Chawla confesses that she was totally stunned by the on- screen violation. The actress says,“I was completely into my character and when I had to perform a violent scene with Sushant Singh I began to relate to women who go through abuse and the trauma it causes. I felt the pain agony and the helplessness of a woman subjected to subjugation. I was weeping from inside and outside while performing these scenes. These scenes were very demanding.”
Surveen took a while to come out of her character. “Coming out of character was not easy. I was hurt and battered, both physically and emotionally. Now I completely empathize with women who go through abuse. I’d like to shake women, who take this kind of violence, by their shoulders and tell them to stand up for their right to exist with dignity. If a woman has to endure this treatment from a man she is better off alone.”
Sushant Singh accepts that shooting such scenes are not easy. “ There were a lot of violence and intimate scenes too. I’ve one specially violent lovemaking scene which went off pretty smoothly thanks to my co-star Surveen Chawla.” says Sushant, he has played brutal character all his career but none as sadistic as the one in Hate Story 2.
It has been speculated that the character of the violent arrogant and brutal politician played by Sushant Singh in Hate Story 2, is based on Pakistani author Tehmina Durrani’s story of her disturbed marriage.
