Mirzapur was one of the most successful and critically acclaimed shows on OTT ever released. The first season got a lot of accolades and it’s second season is all set to release this weekend. Now, everyone is super excited for the show and the cast is also on the same page. However, Harshita Gaur, who plays the role of Ali Faizal’s sister in the web-series had a really tough time shooting her scenes.
In a recent interview with Spotboye, Harshita Gaur who injured herself while dancing in her dance class opened up about shooting for an action scene for Mirzapur 2 despite a serious knee injury. The actress also spoke about how the entire set- cast crew and director took care of her.
“I had a very bad knee injury, a meniscus tear, a day prior to when we started shooting for Mirzapur 2. And then within a few days, we had a Lucknow schedule where I went with an injured knee. I was even sick as I couldn’t eat well, being on medication and I ended up reaching the sets 5 hours late, dragging myself. I could not imagine pulling through the next few days without the support from the crew. It is a little overwhelming to really think about the care I got on the set. I used to get breathless between the action shots as I could barely eat anything due to the pain and was on medication, but somebody would get me glucose, my director would press my temples and everyone made sure I’m fine. Even while I rested someone from the production team would be around to keep checking on me. I could get through those days and shoot only thanks to my Mirzapur Family,” Harshita was quoted saying by the portal.
