Shah Rukh Khan recently began shooting for Aanand L. Rai’s film in Mumbai’s filmcity. In the movie he plays a dwarf. Earlier the film was scheduled to be shot in Meerut and Aanand even did the recce for the same. However, later things changed and a massive set, recreating the bylanes of Meerut, was created in the bay.
Unfortunately, on Sunday, when the crew was shooting for the film, a minor tragedy occured on the sets. According to a tabloid, a large portion of the ceiling collapsed on the set, giving minor injuries to two members from the crew. The members fell under the rubble and were immediately rushed to a hospital, where they were discharged later after getting the appropriate treatment.
A source present on the film’s 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.”
When the tabloid got in touch with the doctor, who treated the injured crew members, he too confirmed the news. The movie’s spokesperson blamed the extremely cloudy weather condition for the mishap and added that it is one of the key reasons for the shoot being stalled.
Meanwhile, though Shah Rukh Khan has kickstarted the shoot of Aanand’s film, the leading ladies of the movie are yet to be announced. The flick stars Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma in the lead along with SRK. However, there is no official announcement around the same from the director yet. The director is currently shooting for SRK’s portions from the movie and the work on VFX has simultaneously begun.
To keep Shah Rukh’s dwarf look under wraps, the makers of the movie have also beefed up the security with more bodyguards on the sets.
Directed by Aanand L. Rai, the Shah Rukh Khan starrer is expected to release on Christmas 2018.
