Arshad and Soha take a leap of faith
Arshad Warsi and Soha Ali Khan recently performed an action stunt without the safety harness
Arshad Warsi seems to be pushing his limits as an actor. Not known for portraying full-fledged action roles, the actor is keen on defying stereotypes. For a risky sequence with Soha Ali Khan in their upcoming comedy film, he even went ahead and asked the production team to not provide the safety harness.
Working in a film for the first time, which involves a lot of hand-to-hand combat, Arshad surprised everyone on the sets.
A source from the unit says, “It was quite a dangerous shot with Arshad suspended by the cable. Although the director insisted on a body double, both the actors refused. Arshad said he’ll catch her in time and seeing his spirit, Soha was adamant about doing the stunt all by herself, without any safety harness in place.”
Commenting on the ‘gravity-defying’ event, producer Bholaram Malviya says tense moments followed the entire crew. “It was scary on the sets. We tried explaining to Arshad that it’s a high-octane stunt. Luckily it was okayed in one take itself,” sums up the relieved filmmaker.
