Actor Pulkit Samrat recently shot for a horse riding scene for his upcoming movie in Calgary, Canada. The actor was being given a body double for the shoot, but he refused and requested the production team if he could do it on his own.
It was not the firs time that the ‘Fukrey’ actor rode a horse, he has ridden them before. Pulkit’s spokesperson said, “The stunt was difficult and risky, and most of the times, there are body doubles arranged for doing such sequences for the actors. However, Pulkit insisted on doing the stunt by himself. He had requested the production team to allow him to do the stunt since he had ridden horses before and was confident that he would be able to pull it off.”
Talking about his experiences of horse riding, Pulkit said, “I love riding horses and finally got a chance to do so after a long gap of 10-12 years. I rode one in my film, Fukrey, but this was full gallop and was all about the adrenaline rush. It was great to reconnect with my passion after long.”
Pulkit was also seen in hit films like ‘Jai Ho’ and Sonam Kapoor starrer ‘Dolly ki Doli’.
