This dastardly massacre has often been discussed in the house. When the scene of cutting me with a saw was being shot in the shooting, my health got very bad. I didn’t see the difference between reel and real life. My BP got low and I started having trouble breathing. After completing the scene, I sat in a corner. At the same time, another scene was being filmed, where people were being shot standing together. Vivek sir had cast Kashmiri Pandits there. When they were being shot, I started shouting there and started saying don’t kill my people. I forgot that acting was happening. The production team came to me and consoled me. Vivek sir also came. At that time I was not breathing, I had a panic attack. I could not understand how my life would be saved. Then I was sent back to the hotel. I stayed in the hotel room for three days and did not talk to anyone. However, after that I felt very embarrassed that how could I have such a breakdown despite being an acting coach. I couldn’t even make eye contact with the crew members. ,
