Aditi Rao Hydari , the charming actress, can quite set young hearts racing. Well, she seems to be in fiery situations off late.
“The fire on the sets of Bhoomi this month reminded me of the one that broke out on the sets of the television reality show Make In India in February. I was there to perform on stage. In fact, I was supposed to go on stage next when a fire erupted on the set. I was in my van. Luckily everyone was evacuated in time, and no one was hurt,” said Aditi.
Well, last week she was caught in another fire accident at RK Studios. “This time it was even worse since it was a wedding scene and the paraphernalia, props and decorations were highly inflammable. They all caught fire in no time. And since there were hundreds of people on the set, there was panic,” she says with a shudder.
Worse still, Aditi was in a relatively inaccessible part of the set. “I was somewhere at the back and felt quite trapped. But then again, I was rescued unhurt without even a scratch. I guess I’ve been twice lucky,” she says with relief.
Unfortunately, Sanjay Dutt wasn’t around to replicate a Mother India kind of fire-rescue scene with his heroine.
Aditi laughs. “Yes, I am aware of how Nargisji was rescued by Sunil Dutt saab from a fire during the shooting of Mother India. No such thing happened in my case. Sanjay Dutt was not on the set of Bhoomi when the fire broke out.” We hope there are no more calamities, Aditi....
