Music maestro AR Rahman’s son AR Ameen escaped a major accident when he was saved by a few inches after chandeliers fell on the set. Ameen shared a series of photos on his Instagram about what went down and thanked the almighty for saving him.
AR Rahman asks for better safety standards after his son AR Ameen escapes major accident by a ‘few inches’ as chandeliers fall on set
AR Ameen wrote, “I am thankful to the Almighty, my parents, family, well-wishers, and my spiritual teacher that I am safe and alive today. Just three nights ago, I was shooting for a song and I trusted the team to have taken care of the engineering and safety, while I was focusing on performing in front of the camera. The whole truss and chandeliers that were suspended from a crane came crashing down while I was right in the middle of the spot. If it were a few inches here and there, a few seconds earlier or later, the whole rig would have fallen on our heads. My team and I are shell-shocked and unable to recover from the trauma.”
AR Rahman issued a statement and asked for better safety on the sets. "A few days back my son AR Ameen and his styling team escaped a potentially fatal disaster. Miraculously Alhamdulillah (by the Grace of God) there were no injuries after the accident at Film City, Mumbai. As we grow our industry, we need to have a movement towards world class safety standards on Indian sets and locations. We are all quite shaken and are awaiting the results of the investigation into the incident by the insurance company as well as the production company Goodfellas Studios," read AR Rahman's statement, as reported by Times of India.
AR Ameen made his debut as a playback singer in O Kadhal Kanmani, a 2015 Tamil movie. He has sung in various languages just like his father. He last crooned ‘Sooravalli Ponnu’.
