It is not uncommon for celebs to use body-doubles to perform dangerous stunts. Some stunts require the help of professionals who are trained in stunts and action sequences. However, television actress Debina Bonnerjee refused any body-doubles while performing stunts on the sets of her show- Vish-A Poisonous Story. In fact, she performed her stunts wearing a saree!
The supernatural show- Vish- A Poisonous Story has been making news for several reasons. Debina Bonnerjee, popularly known as the actress who played Sita, in the show Ramayan, will be seen playing an antagonist in the show. Talking to an entertainment portal, Debina said, I have a very strong title role”. It is a revenge drama of a ‘vishkanya’. That might look like an antagonist but has a lot of scope for me to act. I enjoy acting and given a chance, I will do a role that is more performance-oriented rather than being just good on screen every time,”.
Debina, who plays Sabrina, in the show was asked to perform certain stunts in the show as her role required to do so. What’s more surprising is that she did the entire scene in her saree and was seen hanging by the suspended cables. It was a risky sequence and Debina refused to take help of a body double for the same.
