Ajay Devgn escapes accident in the nick of time on the sets of ‘Shivaay’
The commitment and perfection in work is a prime example seen on the sets of Ajay Devgn‘s next directorial venture ‘Shivaay‘. This action thriller, which marks the comeback of this ‘Singham’ on the director’s chair, is claimed to be very high on action sequences. Keeping in mind the level of action required in this movie, equal precautions were taken for the safety of the actors as well. But recently, one accident from the sets shook down the entire crew, where Ajay Devgn was saved just in time.
The movie is being shot in the city of Bulgaria where the team was shooting down the streets. Ajay Devgn, who plays the lead in the movie, was seated on the bonnet of a car when another driving car came and crashed down on it. A source from the unit told a daily, “It was a bad crash. Sir was seated on the bonnet and was not prepared for a car to suddenly come driving in, especially because the area was cordoned off. The actor was saved in the nick of time by a crew member. The impact of the car that crashed into the shooting vehicle was so hard, that it got badly damaged. The entire unit was shaken because it was one of those moments that only God could have helped. A slight misjudgment and he could have been hurt. Thank God, that the technical crew was sharp and moved him quickly from the bonnet.“
Certainly, there was a sigh of relief for everyone on the sets as the actor was saved from getting hurt. ‘Shivaay’ is considered to be a dream project for the actor-director who is leaving no stone unturned for making this on a grand scale.
Reportedly, the actor will now take time from the ongoing shoot of ‘Shivaay’ to fly down to Delhi for receiving the fourth highest civilian award of Padma Shri on March 28.
This film also stars Sayesha Saigal, Abigail Eames and Erika Kaar. It is slated to release on October 28, 2016.
