Main Hoon Aparajita’s Manav Gohil aces a high-octane deep freezer sequence inside a truck
Manav, despite being uncomfortable with the dry ice smoke, shot for the sequence without any complaints.
Zee TV’s fiction show Main Hoon Aparajita which focuses on the journey of Aparajita (played by famous actress Shweta Tiwari), a doting mother of 3 daughters, preparing them for the rollercoaster called life after her ex-husband Akshay (Manav Gohil) finds love outside of the marriage with Mohini (Shweta Gulati). As the high-voltage drama on the show continues, Akshay is trying to convince Aparajita to get their daughter Chhavi to marry Veer, and on the other hand, Aparajita wants to ensure that Veer is the right guy for her daughter.
In the upcoming episodes, the viewers will witness how after getting manipulated by Mohini, Akshay will announce at a cocktail party that he will get Chhavi (Anushka Merchande) married to Veer within the next 10 days. Aparajita who accidentally hears this on a call, rushes in fury with her phone to expose Veer. To ruin Aparajita’s plan, Mohini pours water on her phone before she can show the proof to Akshay. On learning about the video, Akshay decides to get it repaired but Veer has other plans and decides to lock him in a deep freezer truck.
The scene where Manav is stuck in a frozen truck was shot with dry ice and Luhan’s smoke to enhance the impact of the scene. However, Manav, despite being uncomfortable with the dry ice smoke, shot for the sequence without any complaints. Not just that, he shot for more than 5 hours in the compact space of the deep freezer truck and aced it!
Manav mentioned, “The upcoming episodes of Main Hoon Aparajita will surely enthral the viewers and keep them hooked on to their television screens. When I was briefed about the scene, I was a little worried because I had to shoot the scene in a compact deep freezer truck. On top of it, the script required dry ice smoke, which is so uncomfortable as it was a confined space, so it was difficult for me to shoot the scene. But, I like doing out of the box and extraordinary sequences. Nevertheless, I went ahead and finished the scene in 5 hours, it was indeed an experience to remember. As an actor, I can say we all get to experience new things every day, which only adds value to our craft.”
While Akshay is in a lot of trouble because of Veer, there are many twists and turns in store for the audience. Will Akshay be able to discover who locked him in the truck? Will Veer and Chhavi marry each other?
