In an unfortunate incident, a 30-year-old man from Muzaffarnagar lost his life during the shooting of a Shahid Kapoor film in Mussoorie, reports Hindustan Times.
Ramu, who was part of the crew responsible for the checking and functioning of the generator being used in the shoot, died on Thursday at a five-star hotel in Mussoorie. The shooting of the Shahid Kapoor starrer Kabir Singh is taking place here.
A police officer was quoted saying, “Ramu was checking the oil in the generator when the muffler he was wearing got caught in the fan of the generator and he got pulled in it as well. He was taken to Max Hospital in Dehradun where he was declared dead. His family members have been informed about it.”
Ramu was working with a generator company in Premnagar area of Dehradun. The hotel authorities, where the accident took place, however, have denied any such incident taking place in their premises.
