With Naamkarann plunging into a 15-year leap, actors Aditi Rathore and Zain Imam have been roped in to play the new lead pair on the show. While Aditi will be seen playing the grown up Avni, Zain will essay the character of Neel in the show. Incidentally, in the very first scene, Zain had to perform aerial stunts and heroically carry Aditi in his arms out of the water. However, the two actors had a tough time filming the action sequence. When Zain was performing the aerial stunt with the goons, his harness began to break. Without realising this, the actor went ahead with the next scene that required him carrying Aditi in his arms. That’s when the harness broke making the actor lose his balance. The actor injured his shoulder and had to wear a plaster for two days. Aditi ended up hurting her head.
Thankfully, the two actors recovered well and are continuing to shoot. Aditi recalls the incident, “To suffer an injury on the very first day of the shoot is horrifying, but we are both fine now.”
