A unit member says, “We were rehearsing a tough scene with Huma’s body double. The shot required her to drive a car through a gate. However during the rehearsals, the stunt girl had a car collision and hurt herself. Huma watched it and decided to do the scene herself.”

Nikhil says, “The car sequence was an essential part of a scene but I do not believe in compromising an actor’s safety for it. But Huma was determined.”

The actress says, “Actors don’t do stunts often because they are not trained to do them. However I wasn’t trying to act heroic. I just felt that I could do it.”
