Shahid Kapoor is presently shooting for Kabir Singh, the Hindi remake of the hit Telugu flick Arjun Reddy. Shahid and his co-star Kiara Advani are in Uttarakhand's Mussourie for the filming. On Thursday, in an unfortunate turn of events, Ram Kumar, a unit member working as a generator operator lost his life in an accident. The incident took place before the shoot began, at the hotel where the team was staying. Kumar was a part of the film's local crew.
As the shoot was about to commence, Kumar was checking the water level of the generator when the muffler he was wearing got tangled with the generator's fan; it also pulled Kumar in, causing a serious head injury. He was immediately rushed to Dehradun's Max Hospital. After being on the ventilator for a few hours, he passed away. He is survived by a brother and three sisters.
"We are deeply saddened by the loss. We are extending our deepest sympathies to the family of Mr Ram Kumar. We are offering support to the family in the immediate aftermath of this tragic event," a joint statement from producers Cine1 Studios and T Series Films read.
