The shoot of Vishal Bhardwaj's Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola starring Imran Khan and Anushka Sharma, in Punjab, was affected by the cyclone that hit the state. The force of the cyclone was so strong that it caused a 20 feet light tower to break and fall on the outdoor shoot which injured 5 unit members who were nearby.
The shoot was happening on the fields and due to the heavy rains and storm; the roads were blocked with fallen trees. The situation was so bad that the other unit members carried the injured on the shoulders to safe place from where the ambulance took them to the hospital.
