Disha Patani danced her way into the hearts of the audiences with Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat, in which she played an artiste in the Great Russian Circus. Though she has performed like a dream, the actress reveals that it was a lot of hard work to pull off the moves.
“This is among the toughest things I have done,” she says, adding, “I injured my knee while shooting and still had to do the flips, dance, jump the fire hoops, etc. In fact, my knee has still not recovered!” But the audience’s reaction, which she has posted on her Instagram account, as well as the success of the movie have made it all worth it, she confesses.
Known to be a fitness fiend and a keen gymnastics, high-intensity dance as well as martial arts practitioner, Disha informs us that her injury hasn’t slowed her down one bit. “I’m still indulging in all the training and workouts. That’s because once you get injured, you have a fear in your mind. If you don’t overcome it, you will always be stuck and unable to do anything. I’m damn scared of heights but I still do gymnastics and other things just to conquer the fright,” she states.
It was a big moment for Disha to land a project with none other than Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif, even though she is just two-films-old in the industry. About the Dabangg Khan, she says, “It was such a great experience to work with such an established actor. He is so hard-working, humble, understanding and nice to everyone. It’s amazing to see how even after working for so many years, he is so charged, wanting to do things and so energetic.” However, she finds it a little unfortunate that she didn’t get the opportunity to work with Katrina since they portrayed characters from different eras.
