Sonu Sood discusses the practise of sleeping in the South Indian film business and presents the idea of a “sunrise call sheet.”
Actor Sonu Sood is incredibly versatile. He has established his acting prowess in Bollywood with films like Dabangg and Happy New Year as well as well-known regional productions like Kurukshetra and Devi, among others. Are you aware of the South Indian culture, despite the frequent mention of Bollywood? The cast and crew are accustomed to sleeping well throughout lunchtime!
The disciplined nature of South stars is well known. They make care to value everyone’s effort equally by showing up early on sets. But, despite how much people enjoy their jobs, it is also becoming more common to take care of one’s bodily requirements, which includes taking a power nap during lunch.
Sonu Sood revealed “I used to be very shocked. There is a one-hour lunch break. In that, they used to eat in 20-25 minutes and then everyone would find a corner and sleep. I was shooting in Madurai and I was sitting on a chair, I looked up and saw everyone was taking a nap. I asked a guy why is everyone sleeping so he told me that we feel fresh after taking a nap. That’s the culture there.”
Sonu Sood even spoke about the well-planned schedules as he added, “The day we would start shooting, we would know the release date of the film. Your dates would be locked. You know what time you have to show up and what time you will get off. Maybe I was very lucky to work with filmmakers who were very organized.”
The idea of a “sunrise call sheet” in the South is also intriguing. The teams want to take the opening shot as soon as the sun rises, according to Sonu!
