Hunger for power, betrayal, and ascension to one throne - the most influential and powerful Gaikwads are back with the third season of Hotstar Specials’ City of Dreams. Produced by Applause Entertainment in association with Kukunoor Movies and directed by Nagesh Kukunoor. Starring the versatile actors Atul Kulkarni, Priya Bapat, Sachin Pilgaonkar, Sushant Singh, Eijaz Khan, Rannvijay Singha, and many others in pivotal roles, the series will stream from 26th May onwards, only on Disney+ Hotstar.
Actors are known to go to great lengths in their commitment to bringing characters to life on screen, often pushing through physical challenges and personal setbacks to deliver path-breaking performances. In the upcoming season of City of Dreams season 3, our fit and brave Wasim Khan (Eijaz Khan) was injured severely while shooting but he stayed true to his character and braved every bullet, just to deliver his role to perfection.
Talking about his injury, Eijaz Khan said, “In season 3, unfortunately, I broke two meta tassels in my right foot. You will see my limping in the introduction scene as well. I couldn’t walk. The shoe size of my right foot would be one size bigger than my left foot because my leg was swollen. I had just undergone surgery and I couldn't walk properly or run at all. But sir (Nagesh Kukunoor), was very sympathetic towards it. We have a lot of challenges during shooting, but we figure out a way to overcome them. We can't pause our shoot. Unfortunately last year, six months in the latter half, I was dealing with a lot of injuries. So now I have paced myself. I've realized I am not 35-40 anymore.
I understand that everything has a life. Every joint has a life. So I don't want to touch it or load or overburden it. I want to pace it and I'm working on strength conditioning mobility now, more than just strapping on more muscle.”
