Has Broken The Door So Many Times
Once during an interview, the actor was also asked about breaking the doors, in response to which he said, “I have not kept any record so that it can be known for sure how many times the door has been broken, but it is not included in the Guinness Book. Must be an off-world record because I have been breaking doors since 1998.”
This Is How This Work Started
Dayanand Shetty himself told that, “when we started, a sequence was made in which the gate was closed, so I was asked to break the door. This thing clicked in the minds of the people. More people used to break the door in the show like Freddy also broke the door. But he doesn’t know why the public liked the scene when Daya broke the door. It was just that he had started liking us. Then what happened? It became a trademark and doors kept breaking.”
