Abhishek Bachchan Mistaken For A Real Cop in Goa


Abhishek Mistaken For a Real Cop in Goa

If Rohan Sippy’s Dum Maro Dum boasts of shooting the underbelly of Goa, then the actors in the film, too, will be seen like never before.

Whether it is Bipasha Basu, who in the role of a flower-girl is almost unrecognizable, or Rana Daggubatti, who as a rock musician looks more Goan than Hyderabadi, the actors blend and merge on the Goan streets so effortlessly they could pass off as locals.

Abhishek Bachchan has gone a step further in his quest for realism. Playing a cop in the film, Abhishek has been cruising the streets of Goa on his mo’bike looking every inch the Goan cop.

Says a source from the unit, “Abhishek looks so much the local cop in dress, vehicle, manner, and language, that he’s unrecognizable. Director Rohan Sippy has been able to shoot Abhishek’s street sequences without the local Goan population being any wiser about his identity. In fact, during one sequence when Abhishek confronted a bunch of hooligans on the street, the locals quickly dispersed, thinking it was a real shoot-out between the cops and the criminals.”

Abhishek has now taken his realistic get-up to another level. On Tuesday, he was on the roads riding around when at a traffic signal a family actually asked him for directions.

Rather than get annoyed, Abhishek, who knows every inch of the Goan topography by now since he has shot two back-to-back films here, (Ashutosh Gowarikar’s Khelenge Hum Jee Jaan Se, and now Dum Maro Dum), quietly gave the Goan family directions to reach where they wanted.

Abhishek Bachchan confirms this incident.

He has, in fact, blended so perfectly with the streets of Goa, that there’s absolutely no difference between the actual cops and Abhishek, who’s acting as one.
