Apara Mehta is petrified of snakes. But such is the story of
"Saat Phere" that reptiles are common on the sets. All was well
till the slithery creatures were kept away from Apara. But when a
particular scene required her to share screen space with them,
Apara simply refused to shoot. After much coaxing, she agreed on
the condition that the snakes didn't come near her. Yet, at the
eleventh hour her fear took over and she fled the site. The
producers had no option but to cancel the shoot.
Apara calls herself a veteran in the industry and likes
experimenting with roles. Then does such immature behavior suit her
stature? The actress needs to toughen up if she really wishes to
set an example.
