It is a known fact that for her upcoming film, Tanushree Dutta has done most of the stunts herself. Since the film is set in a jungle and has an action packed theme to it, it was imperative that not just was the film shot in real locations but also see its lead protagonists get to kick and fly in air all by themselves rather than using a duplicate. "So many stunts were inspired by Lara Croft films, that I couldn't resist and I wanted to & did most of them myself", divulges Tanushree.
However, a near accident in the last leg of the film's shoot has scared Tanushree from trying any of these sorts of stunts ever again. While she was all excited about her stint with action then, there was one such difficult stunt that went wrong, hence resulting in a back injury for her, where the pain has lasted till sometime back and she had to go through physiotherapy and basic back-strengthening yoga exercises.
"This was the stunt where I almost broke my back", she recollects, "I remember that the filming had taken place in Bangkok and though I hadn't realized the severity of this stunt then, it was only on my return to Mumbai that I found out how bad it was. My back had turned totally soar and I couldn't indulge in any strenuous physical act. In fact I couldn't even go to gym, which is when I was asked to do yoga instead." After this experience, Tanushree has now vowed never to get over-excited about such things anymore and won't hesitate from using a stunt double.
