Mumbai, March 08, 2016 (Akash Sharma): The cast and crew of Star Plus’s recent offering Tamanna have an inherent sportsman spirit which is readily visible on screen. The vision of a never say never girl is brought to life by a visionary director Waseem Sabir who recently displayed his inherent sportsman spirit.

Waseem Sabir suffered an injury on the sets of Tamanna while overseeing a rehearsal. In a particular scene where Dharaa is teaching the neighbor’s children how to play cricket, Waseem was standing by analyzing the shot before the take. As Anuja Sathe (Dharaa) swung the bat, she missed the ball and ended up swinging into Waseem’s elbow which caused a swelling.

Waseem had to be immediately taken to doctor to ensure he hasn’t suffered any fracture. He added, “The doctor informed that I’ve slightly escaped from a major fracture and have got swelling. He’s asked me to do cold/ice therapy followed by a week’s rest. As the director of the show, I can’t afford to go missing for this long so I have to wear a band around to give it support and ensure it doesn’t gets worse.”

A similar incidence happened with Anuja sometime back while she was practicing for a shot with her on screen father Kiran Karmarkar. “Since the show is based on Dharaa’s dream to become a cricketer, almost every other day I have to act plus play cricket on screen. For one of the scenes, my on screen father Kiran sir had to bowl me in a particular direction which unfortunately hit me directly on my stomach and I fell flat on the floor. For, about 10 mins I went numb as it was season ball and hit me really hard.”

Despite the injury, Waseem and Anuja continued to film the scenes and the shot turned out beautifully on both the events. As they say the show must go on and who better to lead the ship than the captains themselves.
