Working round the clock for dailies mean that the cast and crew are one big family, they share each otherâ€™s joys and sorrows, laughs and criesâ€¦ And when there is any trouble with any one member â€“ it pulls down the morale of the entire family. This is what happened last week with the Dill Mill Gayye team.Two light-men working on STAR Oneâ€™s Dill Mill Gayye died in an accident, sending the unit into shock. The two men, Rajesh and Sunil, died on spot after their bike collided with a car. They had been a part of the industry for the past 15 years, had a long association with Cinevistaas, the producers of the show. Rajesh who was the light-man in-charge, had worked on almost all the shows produced by Cinevistaas. The following day, Armaan and Shilpa were scheduled to shoot for the show but they decided to call it off to mourn the demise.
Infoms a source, â€œThe accident took place around 11:30 pm on Friday night, outside the studio. The two died on the spot. The news had upset everyone associated with the show. They have been working on the show right from day one and were like a family. Next day we had to shoot with Armaan and Shilpa, but the duo along with the crew wasnâ€™t in the right frame of mind and couldnâ€™t shoot. We called off the shoot on Saturday. The actors along with the cast is doing their bit by helping the families by donating money to secure their future.â€
An upset Dr. Siddhant (Karan Wahi) says, â€œI wasnâ€™t in town when the accident took place. I heard of the incident, and we (the cast and crew) will be helping their families.â€
Remembering the two men, Siddhant says, â€œI hadn’t interacted with Rajesh much as he was the in-charge of all the light-men here but yes, Sunil was like family. I would affectionately call him Superman because he wore Superman T-shirts everyday to work and was heavily into body building. He was a very sweet guy and the news has upset me. You work with them round the clock and they become like family. The loss is irreplaceable. This shows that life is unpredictable.â€
We pray that may Rajesh and Sunilâ€™s soul rest in peaceâ€¦ You will be missed!
