In These 3 Movies The Actors Improvised On The Spot!

It is the work of the screenplay writers to write how the scene by the artists will be done but every time exactly it does not happen like that. The improvisation part is also done by the directors or the screenplay writers of the film.

Sometimes it so happens that an actor gets so much into his or her character that they improvise on it and it adds yet another shade to the scene.

Here are the scenes which have been improvised by the actors:

Gangs of Wasseypur Part 2:

It is the scene when actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui and actress Huma Qureshi are sitting together on a poolside and enjoying the silence. Suddenly the actor puts his hand on her hand and she gets offended, telling him to ask for her permission before doing anything as such. This scene was improvised by Siddiqui as he had faced something like this in real life and the scene created a comic atmosphere but is performed with seriousness by both the actors.


Imtiaz Ali’s Tamasha had beautiful songs and the favourite among the listeners was ‘Tum Saath Ho’ sung by Arijit Singh, Alia Yagnik and composed by A.R.Rahman. Just before this song plays in the movie, the duo is sitting at a table and we all remember how Deepika and Ranbir get overly emotional while performing this scene. As Ranbir is bringing out his second personality and which scares Deepika a lot. The scene here was improvised by the actors as they did not use glycerine for this, it was natural. Bringing out such emotions is not easy for the actors it takes lots of efforts and pain. There were reports that after the shoot of this scene, the actors were emotionally drained.

Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge:

Everyone remembers the pigeon feeding scene here how Shahrukh Khan and Amrish Puri are feeding them together. For the first time in the movie, they both are seen together alone but this was not in the script. Shahrukh Khan landed early on the sets of DDLJ and started feeding the pigeons, then later some seconds after, he is joined by Amrish Puri who says ‘aao’ and the scene starts. SRK did not have a rough idea that the scene was supposed to go like this, he simply follows Amrish Puri and the scene started.



Brilliant isn’t it? This improvised scenes turned out to be the most memorable ones.
