A crew member was seriously injured on the sets of Fanney Khan, an upcoming film starring Aishwarya Rai and Anil Kapoor, on Sunday in Mumbai. The film was being shot in the city’s Flora Fountain area when a motorbike hit the film’s third assistant director.
The scene was being shot at the Flora Fountain area of Mumbai when a crew member suffered injuries as a result of an accident. The victim was plugged in to the headphones connected to her walkie-talkie. She could not hear the sound of the bike which was approaching and it crashed into her as she was crossing the road.
“In an unfortunate accident yesterday, one of the assistant directors of our film- Fanney Khan, suffered some injuries during the shoot in Mumbai when a motor cycle rider crashed into her. She was immediately given first aid and taken to the hospital for further treatment. She is completely fine now and will soon join the crew for the shoot. The police are dealing with the errant motorcyclist as per the due process of law,” producer Prerna Arora said in a statement.
Fanney Khan tells the story of a doting father and aspiring singer played by Anil Kapoor. It will see Aishwarya Rai in the role of a glamourous singing sensation. This musical comedy marks the directorial debut of Atul Manjrekar, and stars Rajkummar Rao in the role of Rai Bachchan’s love interest.
Slated to release on 13 April 2018, this film is an official adaptation of Everybody’s Famous!, a Dutch film which was nominated at the Oscars. Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and Prernaa Arora are the producers of this film.
