The recent promotional song of the much anticipated film ATITHI TUM KAB JAOGE? which has had everyone in splits was not really a pleasant experience to shoot for for actor Paresh Rawal. Reason?? The song required a constant movement by the actors on a revolving set which resembled the interiors of a house. However, Paresh suffers from vertigo which made the shoot very difficult for the actor.

Says our source from the sets, "Paresh bhai suffers from vertigo and the moment he saw the set, he was so petrified that he immediately went up to director Ashwni Dhir and told him that he was very uncomfortable with the whole scene & that he wouldn't be able to do the shoot".

Apparently Paresh is petrified of large moving objects and has never even sat on a giant wheel in his life.

However, he later agreed to do the scene after much cajoling by co-star Ajay Devgn. But after completing one shot Paresh started feeling dizzy and just couldn't do the scene anymore. Ashwni Dhir later came to Paresh's rescue and completed the whole song by acting as Paresh and wearing his attire.

When asked about this incident Paresh Rawal said, "The whole experience of getting into the revolving set was horrifying for me. I felt really sick. Ajay has being performing action sequences his whole life so it was relatively easy for him. I heard Konkona too tried the same and hats off to her for completing it".

Well Paresh, the next time you feel scared, it might help to just tell yourself 'All Izz Well!'
