February 18, 2010 (Calcutta Tube): TV actor Shaleen Bhanot who is currently seen in Rajshri’s ‘Do Hanso Ka Joda’ and has danced away with ‘Nach Baliye’ trophy is an adventure guy. He is not really the boring boy-next-door kinds. Apparently, the actor’s outgoing and adventurous nature landed him in trouble that eventually ended in a knee surgery.
“Four years ago I had gone to Gujarat for a business trip, which became an adventurous trip that ended in disaster. It so happened that just for adventure’s sake I jumped off a cliff! I got hurt so bad that I had to undergo a knee surgery. I was bed ridden for six months,” remembers Shaleen.
So does his knee hurt anymore?
“I have artificial ligaments in my knees and this incident happened just when I was about to start my acting career, but due to this I took a break. Though now I am fine and have also won ‘Nach Baliye’ what more do I say?” chuckles Shaleen.
Well one thing is for sure Shaleen won’t say no to a dare!
