In the midst of her forthcoming project ‘Begum Jaan’, it was recently reported that Vidya Balan had fainted due to working on vigorous action scenes for long hours, where she then had to take a few days off. However, the film’s director Srijit Mukherji has denied the reports saying that she just didn’t like the smell of gun-powder.
“he felt giddy because the overpowering smell of the gunpowder was making her uncomfortable. Even the other actresses felt some amount of discomfort. There’s a doctor and a 24-hour ambulance always on a stand-by on the set who immediately attended to Vidya. I insisted that she rest for five minutes before resuming the shoot. She is absolutely fine now,”��Mumbai Mirror reported the film maker explaining.
Talking about the scene, Mukherji went on to add, “We’d been shooting the climax sequence over the last three days and this happened only on Thursday night. As far as long shifts are concerned, we usually shoot 12 hours a day. Only on two or three days, the shift was extended because we had to compensate for the time we had lost because of torrential rains.”
