When Anil’s bullet almost killed John

This is one incident that neither John Abraham nor Anil Kapoor or anybody associated with the unit of Shootout At Wadala (SAW) would forget. The incident took place on Monday night at Haffkine Institute, where Sanjay Gupta and his cast were who were shooting an important scene of the film.


While the film’s makers were busy shooting the climax, the gun-effects team messed up on the methodology. The scene required Anil Kapoor (who plays cop Isaque Bagwan) to shoot a blank bullet. Anil shot the same that was meant to be shot from a minimum distance of 15 feet, from a distance of only 1.5 feet. The shot burst into flames as planned, but due to the close range, hit John Abraham (who plays gangster Manya Surve) with 10 times higher intensity than the supposed range. It was Anil Kapoor’s bad aim that did the trick for John, as he did not get hit his neck because the bullet simply went past his neck. As a result of all this, when John fell, a doctor was immediately called on the sets to attend to John, whose ears were buzzing with the sound even after the accident.


Anil Kapoor, who confirmed the incident, said that John was very fortunate and sporting. John, on the other hand said that it would have been all over for him on September 23. He added that he still can’t believe that he was alive and that his neck was burnt and the wound is still there on his collar bone. However, John is continuing with the shoot of the film.
