MUMBAI: Actress Ishita Ganguly is well known for her roles in Shastri Sisters (2014), Peshwa Bajirao (2017), and Prithvi Vallabh: Itihaas Bhi, Rahasya Bhi (2018). She has been much appreciated for her acting in different historical and mythological shows. The talented beauty is currently seen in &TV’s epic fantasy fiction series Vikram Betaal Ki Rahasya Gaatha as Rani Padmini. She is professionally trained in horse riding and thus enacts scenes that require her to ride on a horse particularly well. However, Ishita recently avoided a fatal accident on the sets of the show.
A new horse was brought to the shoot, and despite all the necessary checks being conducted prior to the shoot, the process didn’t go as planned. Unfortunately, the horse lost control and started galloping at great speed. But thanks to her training, Ishita gained complete control of the horse and brought it to a halt without anyone or herself being hurt.
Ishita said, ‘I have learnt horse riding, and before I get on a horse, I ensure to get friendly with the animal and to get comfortable around it. This was a new horse that was brought to the Vikram Betaal Ki Rahasya Gaatha set, and it wasn’t a familiar horse that is usually used for our shoots. Amidst the shoot, he went out of control. I am unsure about what ticked off the horse. I tried to get him to stop and calmed him down. I am glad that my training was put to great use today, and thankfully, no one was hurt.’
Well done, Ishita, and we are glad to know that no was was injured thanks to your training and presence of mind!.
