The team of Wide Frame Picture’s upcoming rom-com AKAASH VANI was recently shooting in Manali for a snow sequence. The lead actors of the film Kartik Tiwari and Nushrat Bharucha (of PYAAR KA PUNCHNAMA fame) were required to do a 15-feet high slide stunt without any support.
At first, Nushrat, who is extremely sensitive to cold, was very skeptical about doing the scene especially without any harness. Kartik on the other hand was totally geared-up for the same, given his adventurous nature. He even convinced Nushrat that it was totally safe and that she would enjoy doing the stunt.

The two were minutes away from shooting the scene when Nushrat gave in to a very severe frostbite! Though this delayed things by a few minutes, the sporting actress prepared herself and gave the shot in just 2 takes.
Apparently, she was heard telling the team that it was nothing like she had imagined. In fact, it felt more like a joy ride of sorts and she wanted to do it again!

Written and Directed by Luv Ranjan AKAASH VANI is produced by Kumar Mangat Pathak and Abhishek Pathak. The film is slated to release on 18th Januray 2013.
