It is a terribly unanticipated instance to witness where two crew members of the show, Savdhaan India passed away.
Pramod, who worked as an assistant art director was one of the two was killed in a bike accident which happened around 4.30 am on Saturday. Needless to say, the family has been sobbing uncontrollably and a post mortem was conducted only a few hours ago before handing his body over to family and relatives.
The second person in question was another member of the unit, a helper who was sitting on the rear seat and also passed away.
Dilip Pithwa, Former General Secretary of Art Directors' Association, when contacted by Times of India confirmed and said, "It is a terrible thing that we have lost Pramod in such a manner. It was a 7 am shoot from Friday which was stretched till 3.30 am for the next day. Pramod was there from the morning. We don't know the exact cause of the accident yet, though."
B N Tewari, President of Federation of Western India Cine Employes (FWICE) added that they are sending a letter to the channel enquiring about the long hours of the shift in question. "Rajesh Tripathi will also be addressed. The letter is being typed. It will also be sent to the channel's OTT platform."
Tripathi, when contacted, said, "Yes, my shoot got extended. We had some problems on the shoot owing to which the long stretch happened."
