A mishap with fire took place while shooting an aarti scene for Karan Johar Productions’ next ‘Agneepath’ starring Hrithik Roshan and Priyanka Chopra. While Hrithik faced minor burns, Priyanka did not suffer any burns but her lehenga caught fire and had to be changed.
The scene was based on Ganapati Puja where Hrithik was holding a big thali with several lit diyas (lamps) and doing the aarti. During one rotation, one diya toppled over, spilling hot oil on his hand, thus causing mild burn. Hrithik immediately applied ice on the affected area and the shooting was immediately stopped. Shooting was resumed as soon as his pain subsided. Hrithik took the entire incident in a stride. In fact, he later joked about his injuries being lucky charms for his films.

Shirish Kunder, director of Joker, has no qualms when it comes for spending much in order to give that extra touch to his forthcoming 3D film ‘Joker’. So, when he needed a forest for the shoot of a sequence in the film and was not happy with the feel of a real one, he chose to spend some 3 crores to build a set of a forest in Mumbai than settle in for a real one.
A real forest would not meet Shirsh’s needs as the film is being made in 3D and it required the look of a fantastical world. So, the forest needed to be customized as per the scene’s requirement and now, it will resemble the kind of world which was seen in ‘Alice in Wonderland’.
Shirish Kunder confirmed this news and said, “It should all be worth it though. Reason being that we need a huge space to shoot some of the most critical scenes in the film. It wouldn’t have been possible had we shot in a real forest.”
