Shah Rukh Khan escaped a near-fatal accident on the set of his upcoming film with Aanand L Rai. The crew, along with Khan, were shooting in Film City, Mumbai, when a large portion of the ceiling of the set collapsed. Two crew members were injured in the accident, and were rushed to the hospital.
Shah Rukh Khan, thankfully, was seated in another part of the set when the accident happened, says a report in Mumbai Mirror.
A source from the set informed the tabloid, “A prop ladder fell on the makeshift ceiling. The injured crew members were discharged immediately since the injuries were minor. Everybody heaved a sigh of relief that SRK was seated on another side of the set and was unharmed. Shooting was stalled for two days and will resume later this week.”
Aanand L Rai and Khan are collaborating on a film for the first time. The yet-untitled project will see SRK playing a dwarf. His leading ladies, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma are to begin shooting soon.
The security on the sets of the film have been tightened to prevent any leaks. Shah Rukh’s look as a dwarf is being fiercely guarded, with the film team leaving no stone unturned in ensuring complete security on the set.
