Shraddha says she is healing Nargis Fakhri supports safety for heroines

Shraddha Kapoor is the latest in a long list of A-listers to suffer injuries while shooting. It happened on the sets of her film Ek Villain on Wednesday where she apparently fell off a motorcycle and slipped off.

According to a source from Film City where the accident happened, the precautionary measures taken to ensure Shraddha's safety during the stunt were "negligible and negligent."

"There should be much greater safety ensured for all actors. But especially for an actress," says the unnamed source.

Nargis Fakhri who shot a very dangerous stunt sequence for David Dhawan's Main Tera Hero agrees that safety measures in Bollywood leave much to be desired. "I was suspended in mid-air in a harness. And the harness was not very safe. What can anyone do if your harness threatens to snap in mid-air? The day before we shot, the harness had broken. One never knows what will happen. It's a scary thing."

Nargis suggests far more caution for action sequences. "I think we need to be far more careful during action scenes. And I'll tell you this. When it comes to the safety of actors Hollywood is a lot more cautious. They have to write a report even if an actress bruises her knee."

Shraddha Kapoor says she is recovering. "I skidded off the bike when I was shooting. I am better now."
