Actress Sandeepa Dhar, who plays a police officer in the upcoming investigative thriller 7 Hours To Go, says she suffered injuries while performing action stunts for the movie.
Sandeepa told IANS: “I had started training before shooting and the injuries had started since that time. Of course, while doing action, injuries happen and I had suffered several injuries shooting for this film.
“The whole action sequence was very strenuous as we shot in the extreme heat in Mumbai. I would get sunburnt and we dealt with harness, which is very uncomfortable.”
The Isi Life Mein actress said her action sequences were with male fighters.
“These were hand-to-hand combat and since they are so used to fighting, they wouldn’t get hurt. But my hands would get swollen, so I had to keep icing it,” she said.
Her character’s name is Nandini Shukla, who has just seven hours to solve a case.
About the preparation for the role, Sandeepa said: “I had to really research a lot as I didn’t know much about cops. I had to understand their body language, how they are in real life, how different they are from the normal people.”
7 Hours To Go, directed by Saurabh Verma, also stars Shiv Pandit, Natasa Stankovic and Varun Badola among others. The film will hit the screens on Friday (June 24).
