New Delhi: Throwing caution to the wind, actor Sanjay Suri decided to go ahead with a stunt which required him to spit fire in his forthcoming drama, `Prem Mayee’.
Despite having hired a professional fire breather, Sanjay Suri insisted on learning the art and doing the stunt himself when director Shekhar S. Jha mentioned that a close-up shot would take the scene notches higher.
Says a source, “Director Shekhar Jha had contemplated a close-up shot but didn`t want to put any of the actors in a situation that would cause injury. A professional fire breather was called to perform the stunt but instead of using him in the scene - Sanjay Suri insisted on doing it himself despite being warned about the dangers....he had the professional demonstrate the process to him and he was ready to give a shot.”
Starring Sanjay Suri, Chandrachur Singh, Shreya Narayan, Chitrashi Rawat and Auroshikha Dey, `Prem Mayee will hit the theatres on October 12, 2012.
