Gul Panag shared a video recently on her Instagram, which perfectly sums up an actor’s dedication and commitment to their craft. The world of gloss n’ glam sure seems alluring but it’s not all rosy. Celebrities, sometimes, have to withstand extreme weather and external conditions on the sets and yet not let it all translate on the screen. Gul, who is busy shooting for ZEE5 Original Rangbaaz 2, was faced with one such difficulty in Bhopal owing to heavy rainfall.
Several parts of Kerala, Bihar, Assam, Maharashtra to Punjab have been hard hit by floods. However, the team of Rangbaaz 2 had no option but to stick to their deadline and wrap up the schedule on time. The sets of the series were put at a remote location making it difficult for Gul to reach. The actress was to shoot some scenes on priority. Not letting the floods deter her, she asked for transportation to be arranged and the team got her a tractor. Without any hesitation, she hopped on and traveled for a couple of kilometers.
Sharing her experience, she was quoted by a tabloid saying, “We extensively shot in Bhopal for Rangbaaz Season 2 and the rains made it quite difficult. On one particular day, the production team was quite stressed with the commute and they were even hesitant to approach me. But as soon as they suggested that the only way to reach the sets is to ride in a tractor, I was on board.”
The report further quoted her, “It is an unusual way to report on the set and most certainly a memorable one. I must say, the tractor ride was fun and my team and I thoroughly enjoyed it.”

Traveling to work today was quite an adventure! Had to cross a flooded stream by a tractor. While on the surface it was fun and frolic, it was also a grim reminder of the larger flood situation in the country. From Kerala, Bihar, Assam, Maharashtra to Punjab and more. Of the fact that entire villages and townships are cut off. While we can debate about how and why it happened or why it happens year after year, the need of the hour is to help in whatever way we can. There are several relief organisations doing great work. I'll keep posting about them please do spread the word🙏 #actorlife #rangbaaz #rangbaaz2
