During the shoot of Firoz Nadiadwala's Fool And Final a few days ago, Shahid survived a near fatal accident at Filmistan Studios.
A few days before the Filmistan incident, Shahid was shooting a stunt for the film in Dubai, where he had to pedal a BMX bike down the face of a 16-floor building over a long
cloth that stretched to the ground.
Midway through the shooting, the cloth snapped from its clasps leaving Shahid in mid-air., Kareena was overtly worried when this happened and Ahmed promised her that
Shahid was in safe hands thereafter. Later, another incident happened at Filmistan .
Ahmed explains, "It was a song sequence. There were 16 mounted pulleys and
120 men pulling up many dancers, including Shahid.
Never before in the history of Indian cinema has such a dangerous and exciting dance sequence been picturised. While shooting, the left wire of Shahid's pulley suddenly
snapped. Luckily, he was not dreaming.
He is very active and agile and immediately held on to the right wire of the pulley to balance himself."
When contacted, Ahmed clarified, "The cloth had been hung so that Shahid would not feel the great height he was coming down from.
Shahid has a vertigo problem
and is scared of heights – just like Aamir Khan.When the cloth snapped, I almost fainted. There was a pulley holding Shahid from the top, and there was also a safety net
below. I wondered how he would manage. Lekin ho gaya."
During the entire shot, Bebo was constantly on the phone with Ahmed. She was literally in tears.
"She was very scared and Ahmed kept assuring her that nothing
would happen. To compound her tension, Shahid did not speak to her until the shot was okayed," Ahmed says.
