April 12, 2010 (Calcutta Tube): Child actor Jannat, aged 8, who plays Kashi in Imagine’s Kashi that airs every Monday to Friday at 8:00 pm, is scared of animals. Though bold and naughty, Jannat fears animals and if it is a tiger… Jannat is petrified! She will try tricks to avoid going to such place, but then she ends up going to such areas …. Here’s how …
The sets of Kashi being at the far end of the film city in Mumbai, offer a beautiful picturesque view of dense greenery beyond. However, this has become a concern for Jannat, as the little one feels that anytime a tiger may jump out of nowhere and devour her. Also, after pack up, she insists her mom to take a different well-lit route rather than the usual dark one, as she thinks that the chances of the beast attacking in those areas are less.
Is Jannat’s fear of tigers a perception in the mind or is it real? Hope this else wise courageous little one overcomes the fear of tigers and help conserve the 1411 left!
