Unfortunate news from the sets of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati’ is that painter Mukesh Dakia passed away following a hand injury. The Film Studio Setting and Allied Mazdoor Union will now be sending Bhansali a notice to pay compensation to Dakia’s family.
Deccan Chronicle quote the Union’s general secretary saying, “Sanjay Leela Bhansali should give death compensation as soon as possible. We even urge Film City authorities not to allow construction of sets or shooting without safety measures… We would want them at least to provide ambulances or provide us a place where we could necessitate this facility from our union… The safety rules and norms are not followed or taken care of while constructing huge sets and thus such accidents occur. We will soon send a notice to the production house.”
The general secretary reiterated his point of safety on the sets saying that crew members should be taken care of as much as actors are.
