Veteran cinematographer Anil Mehta recently revealed secrets about filming with Salman Khan. During an interaction with Film Companion, Anil Mehta reminisced about shooting the hit song from ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’ and praised Salman for his dedication towards his craft. The cinematographer revealed how Salman’s impromptu act helped him shoot an iconic scene. Recalling the day when he was filming the song ‘Tadap Tadap Ke’ with Salman, he added, ‘I remember in the desert, Salman just went with the scene. Otherwise, which hero is going to lie down in the hot sand and ask people to put that sand on him? He was doing it himself and that’s also infectious. You are drawing from that energy and then he started doing some random stuff. So, I took the camera off the tripod and then I was with Salman in that moment. I soaked in from what he was doing and later the camera also points at the sun which was a ‘no, no’ at the time. Today, it is the norm. But, it was the energy of the piece and the performance and then, of course, there was master of drama at work – Sanjay.’ His cinematography in ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’ earned him the National Film Award for Best Cinematography. Anil Mehta has worked on films, including ‘Lagaan,’ ‘Veer Zaara,’ ‘Kal Ho Naa Ho,’ ‘Rockstar,’ and ‘Highway,’ among others.
