A man died on the set of the upcoming film "Kabir Singh", starring Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani, in Mussoorie. The producers of the film have offered support to the family of the deceased crew member. Ram Kumar, 35, a resident of Uttar Pradesh, lost his life in an accident at the five-star hotel where the film's unit is staying. The incident took place before the commencement of the shoot on Thursday.
Kumar was among the local crew and was working with the film unit from Dehradun as a generator operator. He was checking the water level in the generator when his muffler got entangled with the generator's fan and in the process, Kumar too was pulled in. Kumar sustained serious injuries on his head.
He was immediately rushed to a hospital in Dehradun where he was put on a ventilator for a few hours before he passed away. Kumar is survived by three brothers and a sister.
The producers of the film, Cine1 Studios and T Series Films, said in a joint statement: "We are deeply saddened by the loss. We are extending our deepest sympathies to the family of Ram Kumar. We are offering support to the family in the immediate aftermath of this tragic event."
On the other hand, Shahid Kapoor in conversation with Jitesh Pillai for Famously Filmfare revealed an interesting incident from his dancing days. He said, “There was one guy who was slightly offbeat. I swear, with really big hair on his head, that’s me. I remember I won’t call her Karisma because that time she was Karisma Kapoor, had to do 15 retakes because of me. And, once she turned back and said ye kaun hai? Kaun Hai Ye? And, I was like hiding myself and saying main nahi hoon, main nahi hoon. I had just joined Shyamak Davar and my hair used to settle down half a beat after I settled down. So, it was actually not my fault. It was just the length of my hair.”
