MUMBAI: Comic actor Sunil Grover, who is all set to start his own show from February 16, had an accident on Thursday on a highway near Panvel when his car tyre burst injuring three motorists in another vehicle.
While the above accident was widely reported in the papers what was not known is that Grover was travelling with his mother when the accident happened.
Grover’s mom sustained injuries.
Shaken and reluctant to talk about the accident Grover said, “It was not an experience I’d like to ever repeat. My mother was with me in the car when the accident happened. The car’s tyre burst all of a sudden.Before I knew it was happening our car skidded out of control.”
Grover’s mother hurt herself on her chin and lips. “More than myself I was badly shaken by what happened to my mother.”
A huge crowd gathered around Grover’s car. Passersby on the road recognized Grover .Rather than show concern for the injured the oglers gawkers and bystanders demanded pictures with Grover.
Shuddering at the nightmarish experience Grover said, “Luckily we were whisked away by the police. My mom has been taken care of . So,I hear, have those who were injured on the road.”
Grover is now back on the sets. He has a feature film Gabbar directed by Southern director Krish and his own show to shoot for simultaneously.
“It isn’t easy. I’ve to divide my time between the show and the film. I am running in and out of the two sets. The last thing I need is accidents and mishaps in my life. But then I guess accidents are bin bulaaye mehmaan…Like Gutthi in Kapil’s show.”
