Vivek Oberoi seems to have got into a little trouble on the sets of his next, Jayantabhai Ki Luv Story, in which he stars opposite Neha Sharma. Apparently, artificial rain turned out to be the troublemaker.

A source from the film’s unit tells us that the fake downpour, which was needed for a particular scene, caused major water logging on the sets. The source adds, “There was a scene where artificial rain was used. But nobody knew that there was no proper drainage, due to which a lot of water collected around. Because of the water logging, the shoot had to be stalled.” The source further reveals that while trying to leave the sets, Vivek happened to slip and fall.

“The set had to be vacated. Vivek slipped and the funny bit is that the camera was still rolling and that moment got captured,” he adds. Vivek wasn’t badly hurt, but now his fall is going to be immortalised on screen. “Originally, the fall wasn’t going to be part of the film, but later the makers decided to keep it. They didn’t even feel the need to shoot again. Thankfully, Vivek wasn’t injured a lot.” The film’s producer Kumar Taurani confirmed the incident. We guess that all’s well that ends well.
