Sachin Shroff had a shocker of an experience on the first day of shoot in Naagin when he was asked to shoot a scene wherein a snake runs down his body! Well, this time, the scene needed a real snake and not a plastic snake being made to lie on the protagonist's body. So how did the actor muster confidence to see a snake crawling on his chest?
Says Sachin, "It was horrifying, but I think I am ok with them now. I realized like human beings, even their first impulse is to defend themselves. And unless provoked, they don't attack or harm". This is not it, Sachin now claims that he has overcome his fear for snakes as well. Sachin surely deserves a pat on his back for being brave all thro' the shot, with the snake hovering up and down his body!!
