A little birdie tells us, "The boys did a slide on a cloth which was very risky. They enacted the sword fighting act with utmost finesse, and also broke the matka thro' their head.
But there was one member in the Mast Kalandar team who was having a real bad day!! Aksshat who broke the matka with his head got a cut on his forehead which caused a lot of bleeding.
According to our source, "Aksshat thought that he had a small bruise and did not realize that he was bleeding profusely in the forehead. It was Arshad Warsi who told him about it, and he was immediately rushed off stage and was nursed with ice packs".
When contacted, Aksshat told us, "Yes, guess that was a bad day for me. We take risks in many acts and this had never happened to me. I developed a cut on my forehead and it started bleeding. It was my physio who helped me with regular ice packs; I had pain for two days but now the wound has healed. Abhishek Awasthi too hit the matka with his head, but guess he was lucky on the day (smiles)!!".
We wonder whether it is justified to take such risks just for an act!!
