Recently, the duo shot for a very intimate scene, where Gyan(Sachin Shroff), while chopping vegetables, tries to romance with Siddhi(Aanchal). While doing this, Sachin accidentally chopped his finger, but carried on with the scene, without even realizing that he was badly hurt. After a while, there was total chaos on the sets, when all saw blood oozing out of Sachin’s finger, and this left them petrified. The shoot was called off for the day, while Sachin nursed his injured finger with medication and stitches.
Aanchal Anand, talking to Telly Buzz says, “It was a cute lovey-dovey scene, where Siddhi is trying to cook something for Gyan. Siddhi does not know anything about cooking, so Gyan is infact helping her out in the kitchen. Gyan is chopping vegetables, as Siddhi is trying to go thro the recipe book and cook, while Sachin had this accident. He actually chopped his finger and he was bleeding profusely. He did not want to stop the shoot and did not even inform us that he was bleeding. Only after the director approved the scene and said ‘Cut’, did we realize that he was hurt and bleeding. We immediately applied haldi that was there, in our kitchen and then called the doctor. He had to get 2-3 stitches on his finger. He was in a real bad shape for few days, but now he is much better”.
The wounded Sachin Shroff quotes, “Yes, it was a small accident that happened few days back. It was a very romantic scene, where Siddhi is looking around for the right masala to be put into her dish that is getting cooked, as per her recipe book. Gyan, played by me, is enjoying this atmosphere and while chopping vegetables, he is looking at Siddhi. As she turns towards him, Gyan chops vegetables, with his eyes on her, and this is when this incident happened. After chopping my finger, I immediately looked down to see my bleeding hand, but all around took it as my reaction on seeing Siddhi. I went with the flow and did not stop the shot. Later, all had to pack my finger with haldi and stuff; a doctor had to be called and I needed 3 stitches on my finger. The next day, I went back to the set, to see the floor still uncleaned with blood all over.”, says the diligent actor.
