We had already reported about Beyhadh sets catching fire, while
the team was shooting for Maya and Arjun's wedding sequence. It was
an unfortunate incident, where all the three actors - Kushal
Tandon, Jennifer Winget and Aneri Vajani
escaped, but suffered minor injury.
The actors also updated about the incident on the social media
and thanked for their prayers. Kushal was also asked by a few fans
on social media if it was a publicity stunt, but the actor gave
befitting reply to them! Kushal suffered burns on his neck, hands
and legs, while Jennifer too suffered minor burn on her back.
He was quoted by the leading daily as saying, "When I saw the
entire mandap in flames, I first rushed out. Then I saw that
Jennifer's lehenga had caught fire and she was standing there
hiding her face. She was scared that if she also ran out, she would
fall and suffer bigger injuries."
He further added, "In that fraction of second, I ran inside
again and pulled her out. While I tried dowsing the fire on her
'lehenga', I got burnt and Aneri (Vajani) helped put out the fire
on me. I know it sounds filmy when we narrate the incident, but
thankfully we are all safe."
Jennifer said, "The only reason I just stood there was because I
thought if I would panic my entire wedding ensemble would catch
flames. I figured one of the action directors would step in. But
surprisingly, Kushal saved me."
Aneri was quoted by the leading daily as saying, "Within a few
seconds, the entire mandap collapsed. Had it not been for Kushal's
presence of mind, anything could have happened."
