Actors who work round the clock had better learn a lesson at least now. Parul Chauhan fainted at the end of her performance on Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa Dancing with the stars 3.
For a moment everyone thought she was faking it but when she could not be revived… all hell broke loose. The girl has been shooting close to 16 hours for her daily soap. Reporting straight from shooting to rehearsals and rehearsing through the night has finally taken a toll on her. She passed out during rehearsals but Deepak the hard task master did not let her get away with it. She fainted again during the dress rehearsals and finally gave everybody a fright during the shooting when she simply could not be revived. It was the strong Ram Kapoor who had to carry her away while a doctor was summoned. Once she was on the way to recovery the judges expressed concern over overworked actors and why they cannot opt out of one commitment while taking on another strenuous one. All this tension lasted for about an hour post which the shoot resumed. While Shweta Tiwari explained that Parul did have an option of quitting her daily soap but her loyalty is with the show that has made Parul a household name and hence she decided to continue with it. The result is there for all to see.
The judges, Saroj Khan in particular was reluctant to even give her the marks for her performance but was persuaded by Shweta to do so. How long Parul can continue Jhalak at this rate remains to be seen.
