So we were trying to burn that hut again and again and we were trying to extinguish it with water and eventually, it became very heavier. So for some reason, I came out and it suddenly collapsed while the fire was still on. It was very scary.”
“We were shooting and suddenly a lot of guards came there and they got us evacuated from that place very quickly. It so happened, a leopard along with his family had arrived there. So, it was even scarier,” she adds.
