Shooting for Ram Gopal Varma’s upcoming thriller in the Sri Lankan jungles was certainly no joyride for the 25-year-old Priyanka Kothari aka Nisha Kothari. During the schedule in the Sigiriya jungles, Priyanka had to battle some of her worst fears.
“I had to live with eight creepy lizards who used to roam around in my room. I can say that I'm braver now. Earlier, I used to be petrified if I used to see even one lizard in my room, but I had so many in close proximity in the same room in the jungle,” Priyanka is quoted as saying by IANS.
The hot actress added that the fear of lizards was relatively less than that of snakes and elephants.
“You wouldn't even come to know when a snake might enter your room. Then the biggest threat was from wild elephants. A lot of times we had to change our route to avoid them,” she revealed.
Believed to be inspired by the Hollywood thriller ‘Predator’, ‘Agyaat’ tells the story of a film unit that goes for a jungle-shoot. Soon the crew members get killed one by one, leaving the rest running for their lives.
Since the movie was shot in the rough jungle terrain, Priyanka sustained many injuries while shooting.
“A lot of things happened with me during the shooting - like my ankle injury, elbow injury, then so many scratches, insect bites…” she said.
The movie, set for release on August 7 has Priyanka pairing with Telugu actor Nitin.
