A fire broke out on the sets of Zee TV’s romantic show Piya Albela recently. The lead actress of the show, Sheena Das, was terrified after the fire and in shock, as she had never been so close to a fire. According to the upcoming track in the show, Sheena’s on-screen character Pooja will try her level best to save Naren from the farmhouse, which will be set on fire by his cousin Rahul. While saving Naren from the mishap, Pooja will be injured with a few burns. The makers of Piya Albela shot the fire sequence on a massive scale with flames running high and bare.
Sheena was a bit scared to perform such a stunt, but decided to overcome her fear and give it a shot. She completed the entire scene at one go and shared her experience of shooting. She said, “I have never experienced fire in my real life. Shooting with fire all around was a little scary as I had to walk around a farmhouse that was on fire and on top of that, get the expressions right. I am to be seen saving Naren, so I cannot display a panicky face or look very unsure. There was a moment when I was almost baffled seeing the flames but as an actor, I needed to look composed and in control to make the scene look believable. It was a totally new experience. Adequate safety measures were taken by the production house. A doctor was present on the sets in case of any injury or burns. I think successfully carrying out such a risky stunt is an art in itself and the effort of actors and the crew ensured that the shoot was completed successfully.” Kya Qusoor Hai Amla Ka actress Pankhuri Awasthy gets electric shock on the sets, suffers minor burns!
