I sustained a few injuries on my head (hair being burnt) and back because of a petrol bomb blast during the filming of a scene. We had taken all the safety precautions and despite the accident, there weren't any serious damages caused luckily. But the video is definitely not a publicity stunt. Had we known that it would cause so much discussion, we would have released it even before the trailer (laughs). It got mixed up with the rest of our making videos which were being shared with news channels".
