It’s never good when you are on your way to an event or a film shooting and you are about to get into an accident! No one likes to have any issues on their way to work! Baba Azmi was already late to the sets due to heavy rainfall and traffic jams. The extreme water logging had caused a few problems for the Chalk N Duster team.
“The it was one of those breezy rainy days. I was outside looking at the props, as another tempo was en route. Our DOP Baba Azmi, who had just reached, asked me if I wanted a lift inside, so I went and sat with him. As soon as we moved ahead, a tree collapsed behind us. We stared at each other for a few seconds without a word exchanged.”
