We were shooting since 7 o' clock in the morning and everything was going fine. All of a sudden, around 4-4:30 pm, 4 gundas turned up out of nowhere and started attacking. They were randomly hitting people. They came to attack me, I escaped to the car. I saw them hitting our director Soham Shah who was on the ground. He was beaten up so badly that he almost fainted. Our DoP went to save them and they attacked him. He has got stitches on his head. They broke the vanity van, hit another crew, my driver was hurt, he couldn't lift his hand, it was terrible. I had to take DoP to the hospital."
