Actress Roopal Tyagi has done over 14 shows and enjoys challenging herself and is always trying something different. Recently, she shot a Kushti scene in the show Ranju Ki Betiyaan on Dangal TV. She shares that she was very nervous about the sequence as it required her to lift her opponent on her shoulders. Roopal injured herself but is recovering from it.
Sharing her experience, Roopal says, “In the recent episode, we shot an entire Kushti tournament and quite honestly I was extremely nervous because I have never wrestled. I grew up like a delicate princess in Bangalore and did not have any brothers or sisters. So I have never really fought with anyone. We had a fight master on set and we made sure that the girls I was going to fight with were real fighters and they helped me a lot. The challenges in shooting the scene were many because I don’t have very strong shoulders and the main sequence which was Bulbul’s signature ‘ Dhobi Pachhad’ required me to lift the girls off my shoulders and throw them on the floor. We shot the whole sequence in one day and that did cause a lot of pain in my upper body.”
Sharing her thoughts on how her co-stars had helped her, “The best part of the tournament was that it got all of us closer. After the shooting scene, I had an injury and everybody was taking care of me, especially Reena Ji and her husband Karan Sir. They gave me homoeopathy medicine which is helping my injury. My onscreen sister Monika was holding my hand and Deepshika Ma’am immediately started applying ice on the injury. Even Ayub Sir, Karan, Jeevansh took care of me.”
The scene meant a lot to Roopal and is grateful for the way it has come out.
