A fire broke out on the sets of Sanjay Dutt’s film, Bhoomi when actor Aditi Rao Hydari was shooting for a song along with Sidhant Gupta. There were more than 300 dancers on the set which has been erected in the famous RK Studios in Mumbai. It was an elaborate arrangement as a wedding song shoot was happening when the mishap took place. No casualties were reported as the fire was doused just in time.
A source close to the film has stated, “The fire on the sets of Bhoomi caused the shoot of one of the main songs to be stopped. The shooting had to be stopped for three to four hours and a call was taken to pack up for the day. The incident took place while a wedding song was being shot by director Omung Kumar.”
Aditi Rao Hydari and Sidhant Gupta were present on the sets when the fire broke out. The film’s cast and crew is safe. Director Omung Kumar cancelled the shooting for the day since they wanted everyone on the set to be safe. This is not the first time that a shoot was stopped midway for this film. When Sanjay Dutt was shooting in Agra, the crew had to pack up because of an unruly crowd that came down to see the star in action after his stint in the jail.
When contacted the makers of the film, director Omung Kumar said, “We were in the middle of shooting the main wedding song from the film when the fire broke out. Our top most priority was the safety of the cast and the crew and we ensured that the whole unit was safely evacuated. It’s sheer luck that no life was endangered due to the fire.”
Producer Sandeep Singh said, “We had erected a massive set for the wedding song shoot when the incident took place. Around 300 dancers along with the rest of the crew were present on the sets and our company’s first policy is the safety of its workers which we made sure everyone was. We shall resume the shoot soon”
Bhoomi, which is seen as Sanjay Dutt’s comeback film is said to be an emotional and sensitive revenge drama, and it will show a scintillating relationship between a father and his daughter. While Sanjay plays the father, Aditi is playing his daughter.
