Just when you thought that all television actors are prone to either slapping fits or fainting spells, not to mention throwing tantrums and getting paid for it, along comes someone like Sachin Shroff, whose dedication to his work seems surreal.
Sachin, who plays the role of Gyan in Har Ghar Kuch Kehta Hain, cut his finger with a knife while shooting, but decided not to create a fuss till the shot was okayed. By then, his finger was bleeding profusely, and the doctor had to give him three stitches to stop the blood. "It was not exactly an intense scene," Sachin said later. "I had to gaze adoringly at Aanchal, who plays Siddhi, while cutting vegetables. If I had asked the director to stop then, the shot, which was going extremely well, would have been cancelled." So he covered his finger and continued with his lines.
While we wonder whether it was his clumsiness with the knife, or Aanchal's intense gaze, that caused the accident, we are sure that he has become extremely popular with the production unit. If only there were more like him.
