According to a report by Firstpost, the shoot for a scene of the film was in progress at the Flora Fountain area of Mumbai when the incident took place resulting in injuries suffered by the crew member. The report stated that a third assistant director was crossing the road when a motorbike crashed into her. As a result of the hit, the victim fell on the ground and was then taken to the hospital.
