Actress Amyra Dastur seems to have suffered yet another injury on the sets of Mental Hai Kya. The actress was shooting for the film, directed by Prakash Kovelamudi, and scraped her knees on bricks on the sets while shooting for a scene. Despite the injury, the actress continued to shoot late into the next day.
Dastur, who has been quite busy with multiple projects, including turning writer for a web-series, was shooting for the scene alongside Rajkummar Rao. Despite having practiced the scene a couple of times, the actress fell during the shot on a couple of bricks on set and bruised both her knees. However, she decided to finish her shots before leaving for the hospital.
Dastur said, "I wanted to use the pain and discomfort in my scene because I knew it would definitely better my performance. I also knew I had to get a tetanus shot and get my wound cleaned since there were still little pieces of the brick stuck inside. The whole team was really sweet. Rajkumar asked the team to lay mattresses down in case I would fall again. Prakash changed the schedule and made me finish off all my scenes as soon as possible so I could leave early and go straight to the hospital."
The actress added, "I guess they kind of think of me as the baby on set since I’m the youngest and most hyper person on set. I always look forward to shooting with the team for this reason. This is definitely one set where I’ve been treated so kindly and where people truly take care of one and other.''
The film is set to be released on 22 February 2019, with the team currently shooting in London. Featuring Rajkummar Rao and Kangana Ranaut, Mental Hai Kya is produced by Ekta Kapoor's Balaji Entertainment.
