The trailer launch of the Indian Police Force was held in Mumbai today. At the event, Rohit Shetty revealed how Shilpa has given her blood and sweat to the project. Talking about the actress' injury, the filmmaker mentioned, "During one sequence, she fractured her leg. She was at home for three months. I can't say 'thanks to me' (laughs)."
Adding to Rohit's words, Shilpa mentioned, "It was my first major fall. I just feel so elated that Rohit thought of me to play Tara Shetty. It was written so beautifully. We have given an arm and a leg. He had such a bad accident. What I really loved about playing this part was that it was so gritty and so real. We have done action before but this is the first time we have not used a single stunt double."
