A couple of days ago, Lisa Ray made an appearance at the trailer launch of Veerappan. But, not many know that she had been instructed by her doctor to rest her foot for some time, as she had fractured it while shooting for the film. As a result, her foot was in a cast at the event.
Apparently, Lisa hurt herself when she was shooting for a scene that required her to ride a two-wheeler. Since she knows how to drive a car and ride a cycle, she thought it wouldn’t be that difficult to ride a two-wheeler.
“I am always open to challenges. During the shoot, I was supposed to take a turn. The first shot was filmed perfectly, but during a retake, when I had my co-star sitting behind me and I should have been more careful, I accelerated, which made me lose control. Since the bike would have ended up in a pond, I jumped off. Luckily, my co-star was unhurt ,or I would have been guilty about the same,” says Lisa.
But the actor says that she didn’t realise that she had hurt her foot till she went to Hong Kong in March, and had an X-ray taken, which confirmed that she had fractured her foot. It was put in cast there, and she came back and shot another schedule of the film. “I shot with a fractured toe, but it’s all worth it as the trailer is being received well,” says Lisa, whose role in the Ram Gopal Varma film apparently has shades of grey.
