Varun an 'acrophobic' overcame his fear while shooting for Savdhaan ..
Varun Khandelwal narrates his experience of how despite being afraid of heights, he managed to shoot from the 10th floor.
Varun Khandelwal who was popularly known as Sandeep Sharma in Jyoti on NDTV Imagine is now shooting for cameos. The actor will be seen on Life OK's Savdhaan India @11 playing an antagonist named Sameer.
It's an one hour special episode in which Varun will portray a character of a psycho lover who will torture the female lead played by Abigail Jain. The story of this particular episode demands that Sameer wants to marry to Abigail Jain forcefully.
Well Varun who is an acrophobic (one who has fear of heights) in real life was in a very serious dilemma when he was told to shoot on the 10th floor of the building for a particular scene.
Sharing his fear and how he manged to overcome it, Varun shared with us, "I am scared of heights. I just can't imagine that I am up somewhere and have the fear of looking down from a height."
Elaborating on his character he says, "In a particular scene I had to scare the lead while standing on the 10th floor of the building, but the irony is, I am myself scared of heights. I had to enact a scene standing and shouting on the top floor which I refused to do. But then the director of the show convinced me to do so and it was done without any flaws."
However, it all ended well for the actor, "The best part was as the director said cut, I started shivering and everyone started laughing. I did overcome my fear of heights but I am still not ready to shoot from heights," he ended.
