TV show host and actor Pravesh Rana, who made an impressive debut with Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns, says he was literally beaten up by the public while shooting an action scene for the Tigmanshu Dhulia-directed film. Narrating the incident, Pravesh said, “Once for a scene, we had to involve the public. It was a fight scene. Tigmanshu was dictating them the scenes that they had to pretend like they were fighting with me. When we started shooting, they literally started beating me up. I was shocked. And later we all laughed about it. I like action and thriller. It makes a film look more realistic and original. I watch action films, both Bollywood and Hollywood,” said Pravesh who is currently busy hosting season 3 of Emotional Atyachar, a popular reality show that deals with issues of youngsters.
In real life, too, he is an action-lover. “I am an outdoor and adventurous person. Whenever I go out of the country, I indulge in varied sports like sky diving and scuba diving. Even here I manage to take out time for camping, hiking and stuff,” Pravesh said.
Recently released Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns saw Pravesh play a cop, and he delivered his role with conviction. “I remember, three years back, I had sent my pictures and auditioned for the role. And then, I had got a call from the director’s office asking if I am interested to play a cop? And I agreed. “I am fond of Dhulia’s movies. He is a great to work with. He is intelligent and smart. While working with him, each day I learnt something new,” Parvesh adds.
