Bong babe Raima Sen is so effervescent and fragile that you want to handle her with care! Can you imagine this nimble beauty performing an action scene in a film? She has... in Reema Kagti's Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd.
Of course the film is sweet and breezy, but Raima has performed a flying karate kick in the film. This is as far as the action you will see in Honeymoon Travels...Speaking about her little stint, Raima says, "It was a normal karate kick, and I have done it for the first time in any of my films ever. Kicking villains in films is something I have never done before!" The no-longer-delicate-darling did some homework before the final performance, "I practised karate as a kid, but I never got beyond the white belt. So they gave me a harness and I was practising the kick half an hour before the shot."
Raima is known to have worn a saree throughout the film, even while parasailing! So did she wear a saree while doing her karate kick? "No," she clarifies, "I have not worn a saree for this kick. I was wearing a skirt." A skirt? That sounds even more complicated! Raima explains, "When I was rehearsing the kick before the shot, I had worn a pair of jeans. But doing a kick in a skirt is very tricky. Anyway, I pulled it off."
Raima plays the better half of Kay Kay Menon in this romantic Bombay to Goa journey. Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd is all set to release on the 23rd this month.
