‘Goodluck’ not lucky for Aryeman Ramsay?June 17th, 2008 - 8:19 am ICT by IANS
Mumbai, June 16 (IANS) “Goodluck” doesn’t seem to be lucky for Aryeman Ramsay. The actor went on a pilgrimage to places like Shirdi and Shani Shignapur, among others, to seek blessings for the movie’s success - but met with an accident on his way to Vaishnodevi temple in Jammu and Kashmir. The actor, who made his debut alongside Amitabh Bachchan and Akshay Kumar in Rajkumar Santoshi’s “Family”, came in contact with electric wires on his way to the temple and burnt his legs.
“It was raining heavily and several electrical wires had fallen due to the strong wind. I was on my way to the temple. It is a six-hour-long walk and one has to cross pools of water. As soon as I stepped into one of them, I felt a terrible shock which burnt my legs,” Aryeman told IANS.
“I had a narrow escape. ‘Mata’ (goddess) saved me otherwise it could have been a disastrous one,” added Aryeman, son of veteran Bollywood producer Keshu Ramsay.
He was immediately rushed to a local medical centre from where he was released after first aid.
“But the accident did not deter me from visiting the temple. I took a pony to go there. In spite of not being well and suffering from high fever, I will also visit Ajmer Sharif dargah in Rajasthan and return to Mumbai Wednesday for the shoot of ‘Tom Dick Harry Rock Again’.”
Aryeman is playing the lead role of an aspiring singer in “Goodluck”, which is directed by Aditya Datt and stars Sayali Bhagat in the female lead. The film also has Lucky Ali and Ranvir Shorey. It will release some time in July.
Besides “Goodluck” and “Tom Dick Harry Rock Again”, he will also be seen in various other films like “Ye Fassa”, “Departed”, “Charulata”, and “Chehre Pe Chehra”.
