Mumbai: When it comes to shooting stunts, high-octane 10-year-old Vishesh Bansal, who plays Karn in Producer Siddharth Kumar Tewary’s ‘Suryaputra Karn.’ He can give senior actors a run for their money. The child artist has performed some daring stunts in the biting cold valleys of Kashmir, refusing to use a body double. There were times, when he would hang for hours on a harness for cliff-jumping scenes.
He says, “I used a harness only for big leaps as I am too young for that. Another interesting stunt I performed was riding two horses at a time, which unfortunately didn’t make the cut. Shooting amidst snow-capped mountains wasn’t easy, as it would get foggy at around 3 pm. We would be forced to halt the shoot till the mist cleared. I even had a scene where I had to save my reel brother and his whole body weight was on me.“
Vishesh learnt archery, horse riding and snow boarding for the show. Producer Siddharth Kumar Tewary’s show is creating a lot of buzz for its content, grandeur and creativity.
Will the child leave a challenge for Aditiya Redij. Even before seen Kratika Sengar was not that appriciated like child Laksmi Bai, Ulka Gupta.
