Injuries and pain come as an unavoidable part of one’s life journey but most commonly, people are seen giving in to these troubles. But, Sony Entertainment Television’s Vighnaharta Ganesh’s Kartikey played by Pratham has a different story to tell. Pratham had to shoot for an action sequence in the show, where he and Ganesha were seen fighting Bhandasur.
Heavy weapons were used for the same and Pratham injured himself while using them. The injury did not seem much serious then, but yesterday, when they were rehearsing for a new fight sequence, the pain increased to an extent that he had to be rushed to a doctor.
The sequence being shot was scheduled for a recent on-air date and Pratham understanding its urgency, convinced the production to shoot it on the scheduled date. The actor did not want to hamper the schedule and after his extreme push, the team agreed and allowed him to shoot with the injury but ample care was taken while shooting the sequence and a doctor was present on the set all the time.
When contacted Pratham said, “Injuries are bound to happen especially when one is shooting for action sequences involving the use of heavy metal weapons. This shouldn’t stop us from working to achieve the bigger goal. According to me, time is precious, and time once gone never returns. One can’t lose to these small obstacles. My work is my passion and none of the injuries can break me from my passion.”
Current track of the show revolves Bhandasur’s fight with goddess Parvati, how she takes up different avatars to defeat the biggest enemy of Devtas (Gods). In the upcoming sequence, Bhandasur will steal the vedas from Devtas, thus causing Parvati’s two sons Kartikey and Ganesha to fight with Bhandasur.
