InterviewCan you tell us about your experience being a part of "I Can Do That"? Whether is it difficult or easy enough to go about?
Here, things are very difficult. I do things here that I could do as a teenager but that's not possible now. I was doing a back flip recently when I fell down and got hurt. My doctors had tied a bandage and will be removing it soon for the shoots. We are expected to do things that we haven't done earlier and yes, that are really a big task.
As we can see that the acts that you guys will be performing here is physically tough. Do you take complete precautions before attempting them?
Of course! Safety is our first preference. We don't want to lose our lives while performing such difficult stunts. We wish that we do it well and reach our homes physically fit.
