Amrita Arora narrowly escaped severe burns while shooting the now famous "Tha Karka" song of Golmaal Returns.
A unit source told us, "The song was shot in Filmcity, Mumbai and the set was like this huge godown. Arshad and Amrita were required to run across from one end to the other. There were tankers all around the set. There were tyres and huge empty barrels lit with fire placed at intervals on both side of the set. For the shot Rohit instructed Arshad Warshi and Amrita to run and jump to can the shot.
Here one had to be careful about the timing. Rohit told Arshad and Amrita that as soon they crossed a barrel, they should jump to escape being harmed from the explosion. But while actually shooting, the timing went wrong. There was huge explosion. Thankfully it was Amrita's back that was facing that barrel. The heat and fire were so powerful that bunch of Amrita's hair got burnt in the mishap. Her skin below the neck turned red completely. Arshad, who was besides her, pulled her towards him on the nick of time. Had he not to do that Amrita entire scalp and back would have got badly burnt."
When contacted Amrita confirmed the incident saying, "It was a narrow escape seriously! I dread to think of that situation if Arshad had not saved me. But quite a few strands of my hair did get burnt. My back turned red. But occasional accidents are a part of this profession. I was completely okay with it."
