Shooting for Sho Sakurai’s upcoming movie finishes

Arashi’s Sho Sakurai (28) could not hold back his tears as he thanked the cast and crew of his movie for their support during filming, reports Sankei Sports and Sports Hochi today.

The popstar had been filming “神様のカルテ (Kamisama no Karute)” since September 9 in Matsumoto city, Nagano prefecture.  The movie is based on Sosuke Natsukawa’s novel of the same name, which follows Ichito Kurihara, a physician working in a regional hospital.

“I was worried about my worries, and I kept worrying for the past month-and-a-half.

“My role was to play someone who comes face to face with the sad reality of life and death.  Ichito has a lot to worry about but I also had a lot to worry about because I’ve never played a character like this,” he said.

It has been reported that after the last shot was filmed, Sakurai had started to cry as he tried to thank the movie’s director Yoshihiro Fukugawa.

“Mr Fukugawa, thank you so much for always helping me and Ichito…,” he said as he held onto his bouquet of flowers and sniffed his nose.

Sakurai had said later he does not usually cry at the end of shoots, and he felt good about how the movie is shaping up to be.

Since a month before shooting had started, Sakurai has been reported to have met up with the movie’s director and the novel’s author to talk over things, and was also allowed to study how real doctors work in hospitals.

Sakurai’s wife in the movie, played by actress Aoi Miyazaki (24), talked about working with the Arashi star for the first time.

“He always had funny stories to tell at work so I didn’t know he was that worried.  I had heard he was a nice person and we talked a lot, which helped me stay relaxed,” she said.

Film director Fukugawa had said Sakurai’s permed hair was also something to look forward to seeing in the movie.

“神様のカルテ (Kamisama no Karute)” opens in Japanese theaters next year.

      I know, I can’t wait for the movie to come out!
      It’s a human drama movie, I think. He’s like a regional doctor who has so many patients to look after by himself.

      Thanks for reading 🙂
