Anushka Sharma is currently gearing up for her forthcoming movie, Pari, directed by debutant director Prosit Roy. Recently, owing to an unfortunate incident that struck the shooting unit, one of the technicians working on the movie passed away.
A Bollywood technician has died after allegedly coming in contact with live wire at the outdoor shooting in South 24 Parganas district, police said today.
The incident took place yesterday at the shooting location at Korolberia under Leather Complex police station limits, a senior police officer said.
“We are looking into the matter. The body has been sent for post-mortem and we are waiting for the report. Primarily, it seems that the person died of electrocution,” the police officer said.
Shah Alam (28), a resident of Uttar Pradesh, had probably touched the live wire in a bamboo bush at the location spot after the shooting was over, the officer said.
“The scene was shot around a bamboo bush where lights were fitted to illuminate the objects and the main characters. He probably had touched one of the live wires,” he said.
Shah, was taken to a nearby hospital where he was declared brought dead, he added.
The shooting of the film at that location has been temporarily stopped, he added.
