The shoot was happening on the fields and due to the heavy rains and storm; the roads were blocked with fallen trees. The situation was so bad that the other unit members carried the injured on the shoulders to safe place from where the ambulance took them to the hospital. Thankfully, neither Imran nor Anushka were hurt in the incidents.
The three injured light boys were operated on late last night and two surgeries were done today morning. The condition of the injured unit members is being monitored closely, while the shoot has been stopped for the moment.
Says director Vishal Bhardwaj, “My unit and I are extremely distressed by last night’s cyclone. Our only heartfelt concern is for our colleagues who were hurt badly on the set.” While Fox Star studios India CEO, Vijay Singh adds, “The incident is most unfortunate. Damage to the equipment, though heavy, is replicable, but our deep concern is for our injured unit members.”
The unit members who have finished 90 percent of the film with just over 14 days work remaining will start the shoot once the operations are successfully over.
