Actors are often seen running on trains and doing daredevil stunts to protect their heroines onscreen. Singer-actor Diljit Dosanjh recently did so in real life when the sets of his upcoming Punjabi film caught fire and co-star Sonam Bajwa was stuck in it.
“It could have been a horrible accident, but thankfully Diljit used his presence of mind and helped everyone. I am glad he was there. We were not expecting something like this to happen at all. I think it is great to have a co-star who is not just a great actor but a great human being as well. Thankfully, there were no injuries otherwise it would have upset everyone a lot,” says Bajwa.
A source from the sets explains the incident, “The crew was in Australia, shooting a song sequence when Sonam was rehearsing for a dance sequence. The light fixtures were giving some trouble and one of the lighting equipment caught fire due to overheating, causing a fire right next to Sonam. Diljit rushed to the spot and got Sonam and the other dancers out of there. However, no damage was caused as the crew took immediate action.”
