A major portion of the ceiling fell off during the shooting of director Anand L Rai’s forthcoming film featuring Shah Rukh Khan as a dwarf, leaving two crew members injured. Reportedly Shah Rukh Khan was also on the set.

Mumbai Mirror quoted a source saying, “A prop ladder fell on the makeshift ceiling. The injured crew members were discharged immediately since the injuries were minor. Everybody heaved a sigh of relief that SRK was seated on another side of the set and was unharmed. Shooting was stalled for two days and will resume later this week,” a source from the set told Mirror.”

Rai’s film with Shah Rukh has been in the news ever since its announcement. While Katrina came on board earlier this year, there was a lot of speculation surrounding the casting of another female lead in the film, being produced by Red Chillies Entertainment and Colour Yellow Productions.

The makers have finally confirmed that Anushka has been roped in for the movie. “I’m thrilled that Anushka joins Shah Rukh and Katrina for my next. From our very first meeting, she had an instant connect with the character. She seemed very excited about the challenges that this role entails,” Rai said in a statement.

The shooting has reportedly been stalled for the time being and will resume later this week.

It is slated for Christmas 2018 release.
