Some actors agree that for the support staff, working on a film set can be perilous.
Vidya Balan says that she feels the pain of the workers. "I worry for the lightmen who work with wires which are not insulated. Sometimes, it rains; sometimes, you are doing a scene in water and I feel someone is going to get electrocuted. Abroad, technicians are covered with insurance and there are solid rules and regulations that one has to follow."
