February 25, 2010 (Calcutta Tube): TV actors Kavita Kaushik, Kiku Sharda are scared of an anonymous co-actor in FIR who attacked Kavita on the sets of TV show FIR. Though this co-actor apologized to her, Kavita feels that she is mentally ill.
Kavita Kaushik, playing the lead role in the popular comedy ‘FIR‘ was attacked by the co-star while shooting for the Holi sequence. Kavita, Kiku and Gopi are now scared of her and will avoid working with her.
“A lady who does ‘character roles’ in serials was called to shoot with us for the Holi episode, in which I had to dab color on everyone around. When I tried to dab color on her, she held my hand and bent my fingers towards my wrist. She did it for quite some time. Nobody noticed and heard my shouting as loud music was being played in the background,” Kavita recalls the living nightmare.
Well, but what could be the reason for that lady to do so? “I don’t really know. I was shocked when she did that to me. When I asked her what was her motive behind hurting me, she apologized and commented that she felt breathless and that she felt fine now,” states Kavita. But Kavita feels that could not be the reason and fears that the lady is mentally ill.
After the incident, Kavita’s co-star and funny man, Kiku Sharda, was the most scared person on earth. “Kikuji said he will never ever work with that anonymous lady as he is scared that she might, out of the blue, hit him with a stone if she did not like his jokes. He can’t take chances as he has kids to look after,” chortles Kavita.
Though the actress’s hand has still not totally recovered. Expressing her agony, she says, “My middle finger is still swollen and I am unable to move it.”
Surely, it must have been an unpleasant and painful experience for the ‘FIR’ cast and crew.
