“In the scene, I had to run and leap onto some mattresses, with Aamir following me,” Pradeep shared. “I made sure there was enough room for Aamir’s jump. But then, I was jolted by his sudden outcry of pain. ‘Are baap re…!’ It was a gut-wrenching shout; I had never heard Aamir swear before. That was the first time I caught him utter abusive language. He had to be carried off. Aamir Khan is not known for swearing, so it was surprising to hear such words come from him (I heard him swear for the first time),” he recounted.

“His pain was so severe that he had to be evacuated on a stretcher. He was unable to walk. The physical demands of the fight took a toll on his body, as he lost considerable fluids and eventually got a cramp due to dehydration,” he explained.
