In the shot, Deepak Tijori, who plays villain in the movie, had to put his arm around Sunny Leone’s neck and drag her some distance. The duo also rehearsed the stunt a couple of times. However, when the camera started to roll, things went awry.
Reports say Deepak Tijori apparently got a little carried away and grabbed Sunny Leone’s by the neck tighter than he should have and then dragged her. Sunny, who was supposed to cushion the drag by walking along, also mistimed, and got almost strangled by her co-star.
It was the action director who put the former pornstar out of her agony by calling ‘cut’.
Sunny was understandably in pain after the shot was over.
Deepak Tijori is quoted as saying by TOI, “Sunny was managing to walk through during the rehearsals. However, during the take, I guess she lost her balance due to my aggression and this mishap took place.”
Realizing his mistake, Tijori apologized to Sunny Leone and she made light of the incident despite her pain.
This is the second time Sunny has injured herself while shooting for Tina & Lolo. In November last year, she had hurt herself while doing a stunt in which she had to vault over a car and land on a baddie.
Tina & Lolo is being directed by Devang Dholakia and also stars Karishma Tanna with Sunny Leone. The film is about two rough and tough girls who take on the bullies and baddies like Charlie’s Angels.
