Isha Talwar opens up about eye injury she sustained during Saas Bahu Aur Flamingo shooting
Isha plays the role of Bijilee, the elder daughter-in-law, in the series
Isha Talwar, the actor who recently starred in the crime-drama television series Saas Bahu Aur Flamingo, spoke about the eye injury she suffered during the shooting.
The actor was doing her fight sequence when she got hit on her left eye by a squib machine, a controlled pyrotechnic special effect device, to stimulate the appearance of the character being shot or wounded.
Although she was offered a body double for her part, Isha said she liked to do her action sequence by herself. "Since we were shooting in the salt pans and it was too dark to see where the squibs were in the middle of the night, the shot accidentally went straight into my left eye. My eye had a huge swelling, and I could not open my eye. To compensate for the swollen eye and look normal, I applied double surma on the eyes so one can't tell I was injured. Even though Homi gave me the option of sitting out and not doing the action sequence, I chose to do it.
She also noted that after consulting doctors, she remained in the dark for three days to recover.
Saas, Bahu Aur Flamingo revolves around the Rani Cooperative, a cocaine-making factory that pretends to make handicrafts. The series also stars Dimple Kapadia as the mother-in-law, Radhika Madan as the daughter, Angira Dhar as the younger daughter-in-law and Deepak Dobriyal, Monica Dogra and Naseerudin Shah in prominent roles.
Isha plays the role of Bijilee, the elder daughter-in-law. The show is currently streaming on Disney+Hotstar.
