MUMBAI:Shradha Kapoor is the latest in a long list of A-listers to suffer injuries while shooting. It happened on the sets of her film Ek Villain on Wednesday where she apparently fell off a motorcycle and slipped off.
According to a source from Film City where the accident happened , the precautionary measures taken to ensure Shradha’s safety during the stunt were `negligible and negligent.`
`There should be much greater safety ensured for all actors. But specially for an actress,` says the unnamed source.
Nargis Fakhri who shot a very dangerous stunt sequence for David Dhawan’s Main Tera Hero agrees that safety measures in Bollywood leave much to be desired. `I was suspended in mid-air in a harness.And the harness was not very safe. What can anyone do if your harness threatens to snap in mid-air? The day before we shot , the harness had broken. One never knows what will happen. It’s a scary thing.`
Nargis suggests far more caution for action sequences. `I think we need to be far more careful during action scenes. And I’ll tell you this. When it comes to the safety of actors Hollywood is a lot more cautious.They have to write a report even if an actress bruises her knee.`
Shradha Kapoor says she is recovering. `I skidded off the bike when I was shooting. I am better now.`
