Gavie Chahal of Mohe Rang De now swears by pinpricks. The actor used to play the hero in the Colors period drama based in the pre-Independence era, which recently went off the air.
Chahal had a back problem after he shot a scene in which he had to pick up a huge dhol. A quick acupuncture session later he was back on his feet.
The actor confesses that he is scared of needles but calls the treatment a “blessing disguised as a pinprick.”
