Aastha Chaudhary aka Aastha of Ratna Sinha’s Babul ka Angann Chootey Na was saved from a major eye injury on the sets of the show. The show has been doing well with the thriller track and has caught up with the audience quite well.
Babul Ka Angann Chootey Na introduced Rahil Azam into the show in a unique character never portrayed by anyone in television. He plays a split personality who is a tawaif by night and a man in the day. During the sequence being shot, Siddharth Shukla who plays Shubh, had to run to save Aastha from Rahil aka Swayam, the male version of the split personality, but in the process his watch hurt Aastha’s eye.
Speaking about the injury Aastha says, “In the sequence being shot, Siddarth, who plays Shubh, had to save me from Payal. He was trying to save me with one hand while pulling Rahil with the other. In the process, his watch hit my eye and I got hurt. I kept yelling since I was hurt but all the actors thought I was getting into my character and genuinely acting. Rahil was also totally in his character and was putting a lot of force.” Adding further she says, “I was screaming in pain, indicating a cut in the shot. Finally, the assistant director realized I was hurt and yelling in pain. I took rest for some time and then resumed shooting, when the pain subsided.”
Commenting on the latest thriller track of the show, Aastha beams as she says, “The new track is a lot of fun. The feedback we are getting for the show is very positive. All are appreciating the thriller angle. Teesri Manzil Ka Raaz is rocking right now.”
