"We continued to shoot even though I was experiencing pain" - Ridhiema Tiwari
Actor Ridhiema Tiwari went on to share how a particular incident resulted in an injury for her.
Actor Ridhiema Tiwari has been on the tube for over a decade now and has managed to carve out a career that includes an array of varied roles. From playing a bahu in Sasural Genda Phool to playing a character with grey shades in Ghulaam and so on, the lady has been experimental and versatile with her choices indeed.
The small screen is bitten by the supernatural bug for the longest time now ranging from naagins to daayans to pishachinis and when it comes Ridhiema Tiwari, she now plays the fascinating pivotal character of Chandralekha in Shemaroo Umang's Raazz Mahal - Dakini Ka Kahar.
And when it comes to her character, the actor gets to do some incredibly fascinating and challenging things on shoot which includes wire work, aerial stunts, climbing on trees etc.
However, a recent instance led to an unfortunate occurrence, about which the actor went on to share with us exclusively.
She said, "So, in this scene, my character Chandralekha is having a fight with the Daanav - Daavansh and in that, there came a moment where I have my leg on his chest and his character had to twist my leg. While shooting for such a scene, the adrenaline is high and intense and upon director's instructions, it was done with full gusto. We continued to shoot even though I was experiencing minor pain. However, it was only upon reaching home and in the next couple of days I realised that I had a sprained ankle and it was paining incredibly."
We shoot for 10-12 hours everyday and there is so much work and effort that goes into making a show and there are more instances than one where we need to push our limits and power through-
She added, "But one cannot stop and I, as an actor, always has a will to push my limits and hence I have been shooting with a bandage for a few days now. An actor's life is all about the camera and hence when I am shooting and in the scene, I don't realise the pain but obviously, as soon as I am just leading my normal life, the pain is intense."
She concluded, "We shoot for 10-12 hours everyday and there is so much work and effort that goes into making a show and there are more instances than one where we need to push our limits and power through. Such is the life an actor but anything for the craft."
Indeed that is the case and anything for the craft and for the love of it.
We also wish the actor a speedy recovery.
