While shooting on the high seas, a sick Tena Desae blacked out

Sometimes it is best to take the bull by its horns. Tena Desae did the same but flunked miserably. The actress who has seasickness was required to shoot in the middle of an ocean in Fiji. She did manage to give a few shots but ultimately passed out.

A source from the sets says, “Tena and her co-star Rajeev Khandelwal had a sequence on a boat. Unfortunately the water was very choppy that day. And not a lot of people knew of Tena’s discomfort.” About 20 minutes into her scenes, Tena started throwing up. The crewmembers were far out into the sea. Finally, after much gagging and feeling giddy, she blacked out.

“The unit took her back to the shore where she was given first aid,” adds the source. Tena says, “It was the first shot of the day and I was doing absolutely fine. But half an hour into the shoot, the seasickness hit me hard. I had to ignore all of that and carry on with my work.”
