Rajniesh Duggall, who is well-known for his roles in Bollywood will soon be seen in Aarambh, a daily soap on Star Plus. This show will be marking its debut in the mainstream television industry. And even before the show could launch, it found itself in a soup.
Rajniesh, who will be playing the lead role, recently injured both his knees, while shooting for a sequence, due to which he is forced to take bed rest for 10 days.
Rajniesh is undergoing hardcore training to get into the skin of his character Varundev, which includes weight training, cross-fit, martial arts and sword fighting. Recently, while shooting for a war sequence, Rajniesh fell from 20 feet, and injured his knees.
Drowning in pain, Rajniesh said, “We were shooting for a very intense war sequence and I had to jump from a great height which was almost 20 feet above the ground. I somehow lost control and landed on both my knees. Forget any physical activity, I’m unable to walk. The doctor has suggested bed rest for 10 days. I feel worse because the shoot has been called off due to my injury. I hope I recover soon and get back to doing what I love the most.”
The daily soap is directed by Goldie Behl and Kartika Nair will be playing the female lead. The story of Aarambh has been written by Vijayendra Prasad, the man who is behind the plot of Baahubali.
