A big mishap was averted on the sets of &TV show Agnifera when the lead actress Yukti Kapoor's sari caught fire. She says that a romantic scene during the shooting turned out to be a nightmare.
Yukti plays the role of Ragini and her love interest is Anurag (essayed by Ankit Gera). They were shooting for a wedding night track and the scene required them to sit on the bed decorated with flowers and burning candles. Things took an ugly turn when Yukti's sari caught fire from a candle. "It was extremely unfortunate that the scene which was supposed to be a romantic one turned out to be a nightmare for me. I was extremely scared. But thanks to team's pro-activeness, we saved ourselves from a major mishap," Yukti said in a statement.
After playing coy roles in Siya Ke Ram and Balika Vadhu, Yukti is seen in completely different character in Agnifera. Yukti never dreamt of being an actor, instead she aspired to be an air hostess.
