Deepika Padukone had to wear a shoulder contraption to deal with a backache before her shoot

Matching steps with a fast and peppy garba song is no mean feat and no one knows it better than Deepika Padukone. The actress was to shoot for a dance number in her upcoming film Ram Leela but came down with a massive pain in her shoulder and back just before the shoot commenced.

Not wanting to reschedule the shoot, Dippy had to wear a brace around her back and shoulders to ease off the pain.

Says a source from the sets, “We were working on a tight schedule for shooting the track titled Nagada. Deepika was required to perform some complicated garba steps. When she complained about her backache, unit members became anxious about her well-being. Finally, she opted for a medical brace to soothe the tensed muscles in her back.”

Insiders say the costume designers on the sets had a tough time camouflaging the brace under Dippy’s intricate costume.

The actress says, “It is a fun song where we had to put in our full energy. We had to feel the song and dance spontaneously to it. It had to come from within the heart.”
