Mumbai: Actor Mayank Gandhi was injured while shooting for a sequence of TV show Kaala Teeka, but he refused to take a break and completed the scene.
The actor portrays the role of a mentally challenged character in the show. He broke his finger while shooting an action sequence for the show. After taking medication, Mayank continued to shoot and did not take a day off.
“You have to prioritise work above your comfort if the situation calls for it. The scene was important and the set-up was already done. Such accidents keep happening, because of which one shouldn’t stop working,” Mayank said in a statement.
Recalling the incident, the actor said, “It was a very intense scene where I had to break the window of the car…I got carried away…I realised I had crashed my fist into the window with full vengeance only when I saw my hand bleeding.” “The crew members immediately sprang to their feet and rushed in to help. I consulted the doctor, got my first-aid, had my medicines and decided to finish the sequence with the help of the production house,” he added.
The show is an attempt to break the shackles of age-old superstitions and spread awareness against them amongst the masses.
