Pankaj Dheer nearly got killed during the shoot of the Kurukshetra War
The epic show Mahabharat produced and directed by late filmmaker B.R. Chopra along with his son Ravi Chopra was the most loved TV show back in the day and has returned during the lockdown and is now seen on Star Bharat.
Amongst the elaborate star-cast, Mahabharat fame, Pankaj Dheer is highly appreciated for his role as the character Karna. Interestingly, not many know about the amount of hard work the artist had to put in the trying times he faced.
There was one incident where while the team was shooting in the scorching heat of Rajasthan, Pankaj was in a shot where he was in a chariot which broke mid-way and the horses went haywire and the prompt artist spontaneously jumped out. It is said that the artist was seriously injured near his eye during the mishap and later had a surgery for the same.
Well, but all is well that ends well and we are happy that the actor recovered from the unfortunate incident
To watch more of Pankaj Dheer, tune in to watch ‘Mahabharat’ from Monday to Friday at 8pm only on Star Bharat
