However, more than 20 years after it first came out in the movie Dil Se, Malaika shared shocking details of how she had gotten cuts during the shoot.
According to the actress, Malaika was tied to the train with a rope to balance her body with the movement of the train. She recalled how the tight grip of the rope cut into her waistline and when she removed the rope, her cuts were bleeding.
“I would sway right and left owing to the strong winds and to avoid that, the team tied me with the train with a rope through my ghaghra. This was meant to help me balance and stay in sync with the train’s motion. Unfortunately, when I removed the rope, I discovered I had cuts along my waistline. I was bleeding and everyone was worried,” she said.
The actress spoke about how she was okay with trolling and online hatred. Malaika said that she felt as if everyone handled fame and stardom better compared to the earlier days.
