The Bollywood actresses are turning bolder these days, not only in the sense of doing intimate scenes but also doing the stunts themselves without taking the help of a body double. But such boldness turns very risky sometimes and such an incident happened to actress Kangna Ranaut recently when she was shooting for Sanjay Dutt and Irrfan Khan Starrer movie Knock Out.
The accident took place while shooting a scene where Ranaut was reporting on Irrfan’s character, who was not coming out of a telephone booth after repeated requests thus creating a suspicion among the law enforcing authorities. The scene required to show a speeding truck go up in the air and then come crushing down.
Director Mani Shankar sensed the risk involved in the scene and asked Kangna to opt for a body double. But Kangna showed her confidence to perform the scene herself.
A source associated with the film was quoted saying that when the shooting was conducted, the truck went up in the air but when it came crushing down, it caught fire and went spinning towards Kangna.
Speaking on this, Kangna said that she could not realize the risk involved with the scene when the director briefed her but she was shocked to see the truck on fire coming towards her.
The actress used her presence of mind and moved away from the way of the truck and survived from this dangerous situation. However, later Shankar decided to keep the entire shot for the drama involved with it.
Kangna was quoted saying that she could experience the dangerous situation faced by the real journalists when they go for reporting such risky events.
Co-producer of Knock Out, Nagraj praised the actress for using her presence of mind. He added that Kangna had not only saved herself but also him by giving a perfect shot.
We must say that Kangna has got a new life!
