Kavita Kaushik's character in SAB TV's FIR Chandramukhi Chautala, is someone who is out there to prove that women are no less strong than men. A few days back, Kavita sort of got into the skin of her character in real life!
According to our source, "Kavita came to the sets wearing a neck brace as she had badly sprained it. She was also having a bit of temperature, it seems, so was not at all in a mood to shoot. However, she behaved professionally, and made it through the day. It was really nice that she had the willpower to be so strong."
Kavita says, "It's true that I had fever. Basically that was because of the pain from the neck sprain I got. But thanks to my director, I got a pain relief spray and adequate rest during break time. I had to play kabaddi; one girl against ten boys. It's a tiring sport and already I was so weak. But when an actor you have to struggle as there's a lot at stake. If you don't shoot for a day, other actors' efforts and the production house's investment go to waste. So somehow I completed my sequence."
Was it like Kavita became Chandramukhi in real life? Kavita laughs and says, "Yes it was something of that sort you know, because Chandramukhi Chautala is someone who follows the policy of – jaan jaye par shaan na jaye (give up life, but never give up pride)."
Hats off to Kavita for pulling herself through this!
