Electrocution claims a life on the sets of Son of Sardar

MUMBAI: An accident that occurred on the sets of Ashwini Dheer?s Son Of Sardar in which two light men and four others were involved, has sent the makers in a tizzy.

33-year-old light man Machinder Arvel (Bala) was electrocuted just a few metres away from the shooting spot while the other Bipin Gupta, who was also electrocuted, was immediately rushed to a nearby hospital where he was immediately admitted to the ICU. The other four have not been harmed much.

Talking about the incident Film Studios & Allied Mazdoor Union vice chairman Prem Singh said, ? It so happened, that for a particular shot the camera had to be raised considerably above the ground level from where the cinematographer Aseem Bajaj could take an overhead shot. The streamer was to be raised so that the intensity of light that would fall on the faces of Ajay Devgn and Mukul Dev. So engrossed were they in their work that the workmen didn?t notice a hi-voltage 11,000 Watts line was running overhead, just above the streamer. While Bala was attracted to the line, his accomplice got a severe jolt. Though Bala could not be saved, Gupta was rushed to the ICU."

The film?s producer Kumar Mangat Pathak has promised a compensation for the men involved. ?He has promised to compensate Machinder?s family. In fact, he said that the compensation will exceed expectations, ? averred Singh.

Bipin Gupta has since been brought back to Mumbai.
