Says Shaam, ‘In 2006, I went without sleep for four days and ended up with puffy eyes. In fact I went to a doctor to get it treated.’
In 6, the actor plays Ram, who goes around six states to solve a mystery.
‘When V Z Durai, the director of 6, said that we needed to do something different to effectively portray Ram’s stress, I decided to try skip sleep.
For eight days I slept for just an hour. My eyes were swollen by the time we were ready to shoot. My looks actually unnerved the director while the cameraman was too scared to see me through the lens,’ Shaam says.
