Actor Jennifer Winget has thanked her co-star Kushal Tandon for saving her from fire on the sets of their show Beyhadh. A mandap was set on fire for a scene on Tuesday when the flames grew out of control and Jennifer was pulled away by Kushal.

“I owe you big time .. you saved my life,” she said to Kushal in a tweet. He replied “Dosthi ki hai nibhani tho pareghi (Because I have a friendship with you, I will have to fulfil it).”

Kushal posted a video of the accident on Tuesday in which he saves Jennifer from the fire. He wrote with the post that he had always seen it in films and imagined saving a girl from fire and this time ‘it actually happened’. He even said that not a single action director came to Jennifer’s rescue but thanked God for giving him enough strength to save her.

As part of the lead couple’s elaborate wedding on the show, a mandap was set on fire. Everyone stayed calm and did their part for the sequence at the beginning: The actor who played the priest left the mandap first (as per the scene) but Jennifer sat inside the flaming set. Kushal came to her, performed his part but then realised that things were not right when a few ambers dropped on him. He quickly ran off the stage, dragging Jennifer’s drape with him. The overwhelmed Jennifer could not figure out how to get out and that’s when Kushal came back, picked her up and took her off the mandap.

Jennifer said she got a minor back burn. “Last evening on Beyhadh was completely unforeseen; just a minor back burn, healing soon. Thank you for your best wishes,” she tweeted.
