Yesterday, an unfortunate accident took place on the sets of Kabir Singh in Mussoorie, Uttarakhand. Ram Kumar, a 35-year-old resident of Uttar Pradesh, lost his life in a freak accident at the five-star hotel where the film’s unit is staying. The incident took place before the commencement of the shoot.

Kumar was among the local crew and was working with the film unit from Dehradun as a generator operator. He was tasked with checking the water level in the generator when his muffler got entangled with the generator’s fan. Kumar too was pulled in and sustained serious injuries on his head. He was immediately rushed to Max Hospital in Dehradun where he was put on the ventilator. A few hours later he passed away.

Ram Kumar is survived by three brothers and a sister.

The producers of the film, Cine1 Studios and T Series Films, have issued a joint statement:

“We are deeply saddened by the loss. We are extending our deepest sympathies to the family of Mr. Ram Kumar. We are offering support to the family in the immediate aftermath of this tragic event.”

Kabir Singh stars Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani and is directed by Sandeep Vanga. The film is produced by Bhushan Kumar, Murad Khetani, Kishan Kumar and Ashwini Varde and will release on June 21, 2019.
