Deepika does dare­devil stunts

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment - YASHIKA MATHUR

Ac­tor Deepika Singh (right) was any­way play­ing the role of a tough cop on a daily show on tele­vi­sion, and now she’s also per­form­ing dif­fi­cult stunts with­out any sup­port.

The 26-year-old, who en­rolled into mixed mar­tial arts classes a cou­ple of months ago, en­joyed do­ing the scenes and be­lieves that her lessons in the art­form helped her per­form the stunts on her own.

“Deepika had some kick sand jump­ing scenes and de­cided to do it her­self. She did it with­out us­ing any safety har­ness or with­out the help of a body dou­ble,” says a source.

“Ac­tion se­quences have al­ways been fun and I am train­ing with the best. Luck­ily for me, my mixed mar­tial art train­ing has helped a lot. Once I felt con­fi­dent about it, there was no scope for fear,” says Deepika.

“It wasn’t easy shoot­ing it (the se­quence) on a mov­ing truck but I had re­hearsed well. I am glad that I could com­plete the se­quence in just two takes and this only boosted my con­fi­dence,” the ac­tor adds.
