Deepika Singh put to test on 'Nach Baliye 6'

New Delhi, Nov 28 (IANS) TV actress Deepika Singh, who plays Sandhya in popular show "Diya Aur Baati Hum", was taken by surprise when she visited the sets of dance reality show "Nach Baliye 6". Her 'skills' were put to the test.

Deepika's character in "Diya Aur Baati Hum" is about to start her IPS training, and so, the actress had to showcase her physical strength by breaking a mountain of tiles.

The tiles had an additional element of fire which made them even more difficult to be broken. Actor Gurmeet Choudhary, a "Nach Baliye 6" contestant, stepped in to help her out.

While the actor had a minor injury, Deepika managed to make a clean sweep in the first attempt.

"I had never attempted anything like this before and it was indeed a difficult task to perform. Gurmeet was more confident and helped me perform the stunt correctly. All I can say is that it is not going to be an easy task taking the IPS training ahead, but I am geared up," Deepika said in a statement.

The "Nach Baliye 6" episode, featuring Deepika, will be aired this weekend.
