Mumbai, May 1 (IANS) One film old Ruslaan Mumtaz seems to be prone to accidents. After two nasty falls on the sets of his first film “Mera Pehla Pehla Pyaar”, he tore a ligament in his leg while shooting for “Tere Sang”. But he says it won’t stop him from doing what he enjoys the most.
“No way! It’s quite obvious that my two accidents during my two films were just coincidences. And this third mishap is just not going to stop me,” Ruslaan, who is the son of yesteryear character artist Anjana Mumtaz, told IANS.
“Even if I have another accident during my third film I’m here to stay. Maybe I should get myself insured on the sets.”
On the sets of his debut film “Mera Pehla Pehla Pyaar”, Ruslaan had two accidents. The major one was when he fell straight on his face after his assembled bicycle collapsed under him.
“We had to postpone shooting for a month. My entire face was bruised. I was home-bound for a month,” he said.
Now, while shooting for his second film, Satish Kaushik’s “Tere Sang”, Ruslaan has suffered an even nastier injury by falling off a racing motorbike.
“It was pretty bad and I thought I’ll be permanently damaged. Fortunately, I’m okay now, but my parents are worried. They’re wondering if I’ll suffer an accident during every film. I keep telling them not to get superstitious. But you know how parents are, specially moms.”
