Tanuj Virwani, who is all set to be seen in AltBalaji’s thriller series Cartel, remembers the period when he sustained multiple fractures during the shoot. However, the team and the actor came up with a way to keep going.
In September 2019, when team Cartel started production and within the initial 10 days, Tanuj hurt his hand badly.
Talking about the same, Tanuj shared, “I broke it in four places. I sustained four hairline fractures while playing cricket. I was so heartbroken because I didn’t know how to continue doing the show. It’s not the kind of story where standing around saying dialogues makes the cut. Landing punches, firing weapons is crucial to the character. I couldn’t wear a cast because it would be a major continuity jerk.”
“So we came up with a customised cast which I wore in between takes and would be off it when in front of the camera.”
Cartel, which will release on August 20, is a show starring over 138 actors. Tanuj knew that he had to match up to everyone’s energy and experience to give the best outcome.
