When a realistic fire sequence turned out to be rather fearing for the actress..
Indian television has pushed the bar when it comes to presenting realistic sequences much to the entertainment of the viewers. However, shooting with real FIRE is something that can always go wrong as seen in the past with the cast and crew of Sony TV’s ‘Beyhadh.’
A while ago, an unanticipated occurrence happened while shooting the marriage scene of Maya (Jennifer Winget) and Arjun (Kushal Tandon) in ‘Beyhadh’. The fire transpired into bigger flames thus enabling Kushal to be a braveheart and save Jennifer from being a victim to fire burns.
However, this time, the recently launched Zee TV show, ‘Piyaa Albela’ incorporated a scene which involved shooting with fire.
The scene had fire breaking out at the farmhouse and the show’s beautiful leading lady, Sheen Dass was petrified as she’s never been so close to fire all her life.
As per the upcoming track, Sheen’s character, Pooja will save Naren from his farmhouse which is set on fire by his cousin Rahul. In the course of saving Naren from the disaster, Pooja will also get burnt.
The fire sequence was shot on a massive scale with the flames running high.
Very rarely does such a stunt happen on Indian television. Despite being a little skeptical about performing the scene, Sheen decided to overcome her fears and performed without any hesitation.
The beautiful Sheen shared, “I have never experienced such a scenario in my real life. Shooting with fire all around was a little scary as I had to walk around a farmhouse that was on fire and on top of that, get the expressions right. My character had to come across as a saviour, so I could not display a panicky face or look very unsure. There was a moment when I was baffled seeing the flames, but as an actor, I needed to look composed and in control to make the scene look believable. It was a totally new experience. Adequate safety measures were taken by the production house. A doctor was also present on the sets in case of any injury or burns. I think carrying out such a risky stunt is an art in itself and the effort of actors and the crew ensured that the shoot was completed successfully.”
Fortunately for the cast and crew, this experience did not go wrong.
