Deepika Padukone's pit fall
Many an actress in Bollywood would cringe at the mere thought of falling into a pit full of muddy water. But not Deepika Padukone. Far from cringing, she was game for the deadly plunge her spunky character needed to take into the pit for a scene in director Pradeep Sarkarís Lafange Parindey.
The scene had Deepika and Neil Nitin Mukesh walking together on a road when she accidentally falls into a deep pit. A body double for Deepika was called for on the sets, but to everyoneís shock, she insisted on doing the stunt herself. It was a tough stunt because Deepika had to make it look like an accidental, not intentional, fall. On top of it, the plunge would take her straight to the bottom and only professional divers would pull her up to the top again.
Neil obviously tried to dissuade Deepika from doing the stunt, but the gal had her mind made.
Finally, when she did fall into the pit, everyone had their hearts in their mouths. Fortunately, she emerged back unscathed.
Even director Pradeep Sarkar was happy for he got a good shot.
