Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff are gearing up for their upcoming film Bade Miyan, and Chote Miyan makeup artist Shravan Vishwakarma was recently attacked by a leopard. The 27-year-old was trying to get his friend off the set when his bike collided with a leopard on the way back. He is said to be receiving treatment from the crew.
Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, starring Bade Miyan Chot Miyan Akshay and Tiger, Malayalam actor Prithviraj Sukumaran in a prominent role. It was reported that Jhanvi Kapoor was involved in the filming of the film.
According to India Today, Shravan is currently being treated in a hospital.
The make-up artist detailed the incident to Aaj Tak, saying, “I came here to knock my friend off his bike. It was a little far from the filming location, but a pig crossed the road. I thought I’d get out of here as soon as possible. As I sped up my bike, I saw a leopard chasing a pig.
My bike collided with a leopard. After that, all I remember is that I fell off my bike and a leopard roamed around me. I don’t remember anything after that. I was unconscious. Later, people would come and take me to the doctor.”
Meanwhile, All India Cine Workers (AICWA) president Suresh Shyamlal Gupta urged the government to take serious action.
He told the news channel, “I realized the seriousness of the problem and mentioned it to the Prime Minister, and said that such incidents have occurred several times. As the chairman of All India Cine Workers, I ask who will ensure the safety of the leopard that repeatedly appears in Film City, where thousands of shots are taken. I hope the government pays attention to this issue. Film City is built on 300 acres. If you come here at night, there is no possibility of even lighting up the street lights.
Because there is not enough light and accidents happen constantly. Around the heliport where Akshay’s movie was filmed.”
Akshay recently shared a video from the set and thanked Tiger. In the video, they were playing volleyball with their teammates. Sharing the video, the actor said, “Tere saath yehshoot karke badiya feel aa rahi hai, Tiger (I feel good working with you on this film).
We do amazing stunts, we talk fitness, we work out, and we play volleyball until we drop. As I rejuvenate, feel youthful on the inside, and explode in health, I realize that 55 is the age on my birth certificate. Thanks, @tigerjackieshroff for inspiring me, challenging me, and making me feel joy in my realm. You and the entire Bade Miyan Chote Miyan team receive all my love and blessings.”
