“Today two people were shot on a film set one of them died immediately... like other leading actors, I too have had many accidents while filming stunts ... some of them were near death experiences and mostly it was someone else's carelessness ... many stuntmen and occasionally actors die on film sets every year... This is so wrong ... in Indian films action protocols prep and execution is even more primitive ... Hope our film bodies look in to it and prevent such mishaps” she added on her Instagram feed.


According to reports, Alec Baldwin was handed over a loaded gun by an assistant director during the shoot of the film. Minutes later, the actor fatally shot the cinematographer Halyna Hutchins that was loaded with ammunition. Following this, director Joel Souza was also injured in the accidental shooting.
