Off late, we have been hearing about a lot of unfortunate deaths that have been happening in the Hindi film industry, be it on the sets of Anushka Sharma’s next, Pari, or that of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming ambitious project, Padmavati. This raises a lot of questions about the kind of safety measures that are being followed by the film makers.
When this topic was brought up while we were interviewing the fireball Kangana Ranaut for her upcoming film, Simran, she did not shy away from answering it. She revealed some SHOCKING details on the same by saying, “The system of our (film) industry is actually a fraud system. The system is really wrong. There is no dignity for labor. Although they have their unions, they are not as strict as they should be. As far as safety measures are concerned, let’s not even talk about it. I end up in so many accidents that I’ve almost lost count. Sometimes the makers come and ask me “How did you survive that?!” There was this time that I was riding a horse, who almost flipped. I was asked to go home to recover from the trauma by the makers, who were shocked themselves to see me survive. This talks about how poor is our system. There’s no insurance for anyone. Human life is so cheap in India. It’s really sad. I don’t have enough words to criticize that. The practices that are followed out here are really primitive. I feel that everyone needs to come out and talk about this. There is a strong need of democracy as well”
Whoa! Well, we totally agree with Kangana on this one.
Simran, a film that stars Kangana Ranaut and directed by Hansal Mehta, is all set to release on the 15th of September.
