Deepika's character in "Diya Aur Baati Hum" is about to start her IPS training, and so, the actress had to showcase her physical strength by breaking a mountain of tiles.
The tiles had an additional element of fire which made them even more difficult to be broken. Actor Gurmeet Choudhary, a "Nach Baliye 6" contestant, stepped in to help her out.
While the actor had a minor injury, Deepika managed to make a clean sweep in the first attempt.
"I had never attempted anything like this before and it was indeed a difficult task to perform. Gurmeet was more confident and helped me perform the stunt correctly. All I can say is that it is not going to be an easy task taking the IPS training ahead, but I am geared up," Deepika said in a statement.
The "Nach Baliye 6" episode, featuring Deepika, will be aired this weekend.
