However, Naveena Bole's entry to the place was not easy-going. There was a scene where it was to be shown that Dia's leg gets caught in fresh cow dung. Since the unit was shooting cut to cut, and there was no time to arrange for ground spinach leaves, which usually are used in place of dung, the real cow dung was brought in for the scene.
Says Naveena, "Due to time constraint, we were forced to use the real gobar for this particular scene. I did not object to doing the scene, but I had one horrible experience after shooting for it. The gobar was stinking badly, and it took me half an hour to clean myself. My whole vanity van had the awful smell, and was shabby too".
Kudos to Naveena for her sincerity towards work!!
