Shooting with Sharad Kelkar gave many bruises: Parineeti Chopratext_fields
Mumbai: Bollywood star Parineeti Chopra said that shooting 'Code Name Tiranga' was tough, with her sustaining many bruises while working action sequences along with co-star Sharad Kelkar, IANS reported.
She said, "Sharad Sir's height is 7 feet, and we had to do action in the film. Typically, the heroine's work is to wear good clothes, look good, and do nice hair as if a luxurious and romantic sequence is going to be shot. Our director told me that I will have to perform action scenes and that too with Sharad, who is the enemy in the film."
Sharad's height posed a serious issue before her as it was the root cause of her bruises.
"Now you see his height and my height, and you can see he is a seasoned actor who has done so many action films for the past 10-15 years, and when I had to do action scenes with him, then one can understand. I had used so many ice packs, heat packs, and painkillers as it had hurt me so much," she said.
She said that, however, shots became perfect after 10 to 15 takes.
She continued, "I used to go to hit Sharad Sir, and he used to just stop me, and I would have bruises all over. Our director Ribhu Sir is a perfectionist, and he used to not be happy with single takes, and we would go on to do 8-10 takes. After 10-15 takes the condition in which I used to go back to the hotel, what shall I say now."
Meanwhile, Sharad lauded Parineeti for her work in the action flick.
"Will have to accept that Parineeti has done brilliant action in the film. Such action and hard work you will see for the first time in any film. Physical combat and hand-to-hand combat are rarely shown in films, but this film has many," he said.
The film 'Code Name Tiranga' stars Parineeti Chopra, Sharad Kelkar, Harrdy Sandhu, and Rajit Kapur and is directed by Ribhu Dasgupta. The crew is coming to on 'The Kapil Sharma Show', aired on Sony Entertainment Television, to promote the picture.
