By Lalit Tewari : Kinshuk Mahajan aka Pintoo Singh of Raakesh Paswan’s Afsar Bitiya had a near-death experience while shooting for a regular car sequence for the show.
Kinshuk, who is a competent driver, was told that the brakes need to be pressed harder than usual in order to bring the car to halt. But to his horror, when he pressed brakes to stop the car at the marked spot, he realised that they were dysfunctional and cried out for help. His co-stars, Yash Sinha (seated next to him) and Mitali Nag (seated behind) failed to comprehend the commotion.
But as soon as everyone realised the seriousness of the situation, they all panicked for their lives. Fortunately, the car was not at high speed and after running an extra hundred metres from the marked spot, it hit against a wooden fence. Thankfully, no one got injured and the trio heaved a sigh of relief after stepping out of the car. Kinshuk recalls, “It was dreadful. Had the car been at a high speed, it would have resulted in a fatal accident and claimed a life if anyone had come in front of the speeding car. Henceforth, I will be extra careful and check everything before stepping inside the car used at shoots.”
