Actors goes through various tough regimes to get into the skin of their characters, but Vidya Balan almost lost her life while shooting for her forthcoming film Kahaani.

The incident happened while Vidya was shooting for Sujoy Ghosh's Kahaani at Kolkata's metro rail station. While filming a scene for the flick, Vidya almost fell onto the tracks of the metro rail, but was saved by her director.

Giving more details about the incident, Ghosh was quoted saying, "When we were shooting we had security guards across the platform. It went pitch perfect, not a single thing out of place. While we were paying attention, amidst all this, the only person we forgot was Vidya. But she is an adult. She is supposed to take care of herself.

Recalling the incident, Sujoy said, "There was a scene where she was running backwards on the platform. She bumped against a weighing machine. She tripped and was about to fall onto the tracks. Seeing that she was about to fall, we immediately rushed to her. When she acts, she acts and forgets everything else."

"There was nothing heroic about it. Since I was behind the camera I could see what was going to happen. I just had the quick sight to rush and save her from falling." So did the incident cause an interruption? The director explains, "Balan is like 'Oh cool I got saved, lets get back on the job," a humble Sujoy, further added.

"You take a lot of precautions for other people but you take your own folk for granted. We took the precaution for everybody else. We just forgot Balan," he said admitting his folly.

Ghosh also revealed that film was shot in real time, during Durga Puja and said that one of their toughest challenges was, to deal with real people who had no idea what was going on.
