Cyclone destroys Imran Khan-Anushka Sharma’s film set

A thunderstorm followed by heavy rains destroyed the set of Vishal Bhardwaj’s film Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola and injured five people

The force of the storm Wednesday night was so strong that it caused a 20-foot-high light tower to snap and fall to the ground, injuring five unit members, said an eyewitness from the set, which was put up in the fields outside the city in Punjab. “Due to storm, the several trees fell and blocked the road. The situation was so bad that the other unit members carried the injured on their shoulders to a safe place and from there they were taken in an ambulance to a hospital.

“Three light boys, who were injured, were operated upon on Wednesday night and two surgeries were done Thursday morning. Their condition is being monitored closely. The shoot has been halted for the moment,” he added. Imran Khan and Anushka Sharma were also present there, but they are safe.

An upset Bhardwaj said: “Me and my unit are extremely distressed by last night’s storm. Our heartfelt concern is for our colleagues who were hurt badly on the set.” Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola is being co-produced by Fox Star India and Bhardwaj. “It’s most unfortunate incident. Damage to the equipment, though heavy, is replaceable, but our deep concern is for our injured unit members,” said Vijay Singh, CEO Fox Star India.

Ninety percent of the shooting is complete and only 14 days work is left. The shooting will resume once the treatment of the crew members is complete.
