Actor grapples with extreme weather conditions and a sprained ankle in the jungles of Madhya Pradesh while shooting for Prakash Jha's next film

Where there is a will there is a way. Abhay Deol who is shooting non-stop for Prakash Jha’s next film in the deep jungles of Madhya Pradesh has been feeling the intense after-effects of filming under the hot sun. But the actor has not once complained.

According to a source, the place has no electricity for almost the entire day except for two hours. It’s naturally difficult to shoot for days together in this weather, but Abhay’s trying his best to not crib about it.

“It was surprising to see Abhay comfortably shooting despite the fact that Panchmarhi is one of the most difficult locations to shoot at — with no electricity and even the other basic amenities are scarce. But Abhay was a thorough professional throughout and showed no sign of discomfort whatsoever,” says our source.

Fate takes a turn
Things took a turn for the worse when Abhay sprained his ankle. He was required to do an action sequence, and now with his injury, the actor has been advised as much rest as possible.

Given that Abhay plays a Naxalite and is part of most of the scenes in this film, Jha is naturally worried at the delay this unfortunate incident will cause to the action sequences. The director is trying to figure out an alternative plan where Abhay won’t be required to do many high-octane scenes.
