MUMBAI: In a rare show of compassion and solidarity, the lead stars of Son Of Sardar have come forward to offer adequate financial assistance to family of the lightman Bala who was killed on Monday on location in Patiala. Shooting remained suspended for the second day on Tuesday as a special pooja was conducted for the deceased.
A pall of gloom had descended on Patiala. Says a source, “Sonakshi who’s like the baby of the unit was specially affected by the tragedy. Though there was a suggestion that shooting should be resumed on Tuesday no one was in the mood to work. The entire cast and crew is badly shaken by the accident.”
Says the film’s producer Kumar Mangat, “Ajay, Sanjay, Sonakshi and the rest of the unit have offered every possible assistance to the deceased’s family. What happened was truly unfortunate.” When asked if this setback would affect the film’s schedule Kumar Mangat replied. “Our Diwali release remains unaffected. However the mood of fun and masti is gone from location.”
