The shoot of Coolie No 1 has been witnessing some mishaps for quite some time now. After the production house lost s 2.5 crore after fire broke out at the sets, recent Varun Dhawan got trapped in a difficult situation while shooting a daredevil stunt for the film. Recently, the actor had to shoot for a stunt on a cliff on the outskirts of Pune, when he got locked in a car and had to wait for quite some time before the stunt coordinators could rescue him.
As per a report in Mid-Day, Varun had a narrow escape while shooting this stunt in which he had to deliver some close up shots whilst sitting inside a car that was hanging upside down from a cliff. Once the shoot was done, Varun tried to get out of the car but to his utter surprise, the door of the car got jammed which made it hard for the actor to come out from the same. As per the report, getting Varun out from the car hanging on the edge of the cliff was very difficult for the stunt coordinator and his team. Despite the rehearsals, things went awry in this shoot. Varun, however, kept his cool and waited for the coordinators to fix things.
“After Varun filmed his shot, he realised that the car door was jammed and wouldn’t budge. Even though the stunt was rehearsed several times under the supervision of the stunt coordinators and all safety precautions were employed by the director, things went awry. What followed was a few minutes of dread as the stunt coordinators tried to get him out of the vehicle. It was proving all the more difficult given how precariously the car was balanced on the edge. Varun kept his calm throughout the episode and finally escaped unhurt with the help of one of the stunt coordinators” said the source to the newspaper daily.
