Actor Akshay Dogra, who is seen as Jagan in TV show 'Waaris', had an awkward moment while shooting when his co-star Lavina Tandon spat on his face three times.
Lavina, who is seen as Swaroop in the show, spat on Akshay's face as part of a sequence in which her character catches him red-handed getting cosy with another girl. Interestingly, due to retakes, Lavina actually spat three times on his face.
Talking about the nasty encounter, Akshay said in a statement: 'Initially the production approached me and told me that they would use water in case I feel uncomfortable in the scene. But I wanted the scene to look real and not made up.
'Hence, I obliged and she spat thrice on my face. More than me, I felt Lavina was feeling uncomfortable. (It was) one of my unforgettable experiences I’d say. Nevertheless, it’s a part of my profession.'
'Waaris', which also stars Aarti Singh and Sania Touqueer, is based on cultural issues and focuses on the life of Amba (Aarti), who brings up a girl child as a boy.
The show is aired on &TV.
