A tragic incident has emerged on the sets of the TV serial 'Imlie' on Tuesday.  A  23 year old labourer has lost his life due to an electric shock. An official statement from the authorities has also been released regarding this unfortunate incident. The police have revealed that the shooting of the 'Imlie' serial was in progress on the set when a 23-year-old laborer suffered an electric shock, resulting in his demise. Some claim that this death occurred due to a heart attack.

The deceased individual has been identified as Mahendra Yadav, who hailed from Uttar Pradesh. Abhijeet Rane, the General Secretary of the Film Workers Union, stated that this incident took place during the shooting of the 'Imli' television serial, produced by 4 Lions Films Private Limited, in Goregaon Film City on Tuesday.

Rane said, "Mahendra Yadav was a resident of Kushinagar in Uttar Pradesh. We have made arrangements to transport his body to his home for the final rites. I have personally discussed this matter with the entire team and the family. They are trying to provide compensation and insurance money to the deceased's family. They are also in talks with the makers regarding this."

He further mentioned that when he raised the issue with the producers, they claimed that Yadav's death occurred due to a heart attack. However, other crew members argued that he was struck by lightning, and he immediately collapsed. The exact cause of death will be known once the post-mortem report is available.

B.N. Tiwari, President of the Federation of Western India Cine Employees, suspects that this could be a case of negligence, as there still seems to be inadequate safety measures on the sets of such shoots.

The police have registered a case and are conducting an investigation into the incident. The All India Cine Workers Association has demanded a compensation of Rs. 50 lakhs for all those found responsible for Yadav's death and has called for police action.

Team India Forums extends our heartfelt condolences to the family of the deceased.

BrhannadaArmour @BrhannadaArmour 2 months ago I'm very sad to read that anyone lost his life in an accident while creating entertainment, and Mahendra Yadav was at an age when life is just starting. May safety on set improve so that this never happens again, and may those whose negligence caused this death be held accountable.

Team India Forums, are you sure "struck by lightning" is what was claimed? Or, did you mistranslate the Hindi words for "electrocuted?"

Blueeeee @Blueeeee 2 months ago Lol, every human being dies of heart attack. Medically that is what causes death. The audacity of a multibillion MNC like Star Disney and a multimillionaire like Gul Khan to evade responsibility is disgusting. This was your workplace, it was your responsibility to ensure safety protocols. And they will get away with this because the victim was a blue-collar crew member and not some actor with a fan-following. But a human life is a human life, Gul.
I hope the family sues the hell out of these people and there is proper enquiry into this. Disgusting
