Star Plus show Ikyawann (Panorama Entertainment) is presently shooting the entertaining engagement sequences of Satya (Namish Taneja) and Susheel (Prachi Tehlan).
Amidst the shoot, there was a small hurdle that the cast and crew had to overcome!! And it took a brave effort from one of the actors to redeem the situation.
While the shoot was on, senior actress Kavita Vaid’s saree caught fire, and there was a bit of chaos on the set. However, the presence of mind and quick reflex of actor Puneet Panjwani averted a mishap from happening.
A credible source tells us, “Kavita Vaid aka Leela Ajmera was shooting the engagement sequence with the entire cast when her saree caught fire. Puneet Panjwani who was standing closest to Kavita used his hand to extinguish the fire, and in the process burnt his hand.”
When contacted, Puneet told IndianWikiMedia.com, “I acted on a reflex. It was all so sudden. I was the closest to her. So I acted immediately. She wore a silk saree which caught fire in seconds. But thank God, nothing major happened. Yes, I suffered minor burns on my hand while i put off the fire. However, I am glad that all is fine now.”
Kudos to Puneet for the timely reaction!! Wishing him a speedy recovery…
