"Some things like safety cables could not reach the spot, there was no safety and the shot had to be taken because it was Purnia's main flyover where trains move regularly. We had permission for that time which would have been tough to get later," the 40-year-old told reporter Monday at the launch of the first look of the film.
"The fightmaster made me jump from a height of 40 feet without any safety. It was Bihar and I told him if anything happens to me how will you go back from here? How will you even reach the railway station or airport? But nothing happened to me and the shot went well," he added. Directed by newcomer Manish Vatsalya, "Jeena Hai Toh Thok Daal" also stars Yashpal Sharma, Hazel Crowney and director Manish himself.
