Actor Karanvir Bohra, who essays the role of Rocky Akhilesh Raheja in Naagin 2, met with an accident on Tuesday. He was on his way to Bhuj where he was scheduled to shoot a song for his upcoming film, Hume Tumse Pyaar Kitna.
Karanvir was accompanied by his co-star Priya Banerjee and his sister Meenakshi. Luckily they escaped with minor injuries. Karanvir cancelled his shoot and returned to Mumbai.
“With the grace of God there are no injuries except for a slight back pain due to the sudden jerk. A speeding truck was coming from the wrong side and we managed to swerve to the right on to the pavement in an attempt to avoid the truck and hit a lamppost. The speed of the car was roughly 90-95 kms/hr, as I had asked my driver to not drive above 100kms/hr,” said the actor in a statement.
“Maybe for 50 meters we kept driving on the pavement. The car is completely smashed and it’s a miracle we survived. We were actually going to shoot just the title track of the movie and that is all that is left for the film to complete,” the statement further said.
Talking about the film he is working on, Karanvir said, “It is a tribute to Sonia and Rajiv Ji’s love story, but it is fiction. Neither does it have any political agenda nor is it an attempt to grab eyeballs. It is a simple story which is made to create a different content for the audience. It is a tribute to love & peace worldwide.”
