What happened during the fighting scene between you and Priyanka?
“Priyanka and I have a fight sequence where she beats me with a stick. It was a long scene so for obvious reasons I was tensed.
Priyanka asked me how comfortable in fight squences have I done it or not. She was more concerned abut my safety than I was.
” The scene started early morning with around two thousands people were there to see her and shooting. I was scared initially and was not eaten much. After the lunch break I felt little dizzy so I called for Glucon D. She asked me why I am having so much of Gluocon D. After knowing my worries she scolded me and asked her boy to bring a cheese sandwich for me and she literally forced me to have it.”
Ankush also adds,
“The way Priyanka is working now it is phenomenal. Look at her energy in the film. Action sequences, dialogues, physical fitness and after doing that she was doing her American show as well. So one can learn from her that so much energy and dedication she has. She is hardworking and humble, the way she made me comfortable in front of the camera is very nice gesture of her. We chatted a but after the shoot and I wish I could spend some more time with her.”
