AR Rahman’s son AR Ameen went through a traumatic accident on Sunday evening. The singer, who was busy shooting for a song, escaped during a major accident that could have led to serious injuries. In a long social media post, he shed light on what exactly happened, leaving his fans and the music industry in shock. Talking about the accident, he revealed that while shooting for a song, the chandeliers hanging from the crane came crashing down on the set.
Ameen, through a lengthy Instagram post expressed how he trusted the team to have taken care of the safety and engineering. Expressing his gratitude towards God, he revealed that he and his team are still traumatised from the event. Along with the post, the singer also shared two pictures of the set, the first one from before the accident and the second after.
He wrote, “I am thankful to the Almighty, my parents, family, well-wishers, and my spiritual teacher that I am safe and alive today. Just three nights ago, I was shooting for a song and I trusted the team to have taken care of the engineering and safety, while I was focusing on performing in front of the camera. The whole truss and chandeliers that were suspended from a crane came crashing down while I was right in the middle of the spot. If it were a few inches here and there, a few seconds earlier or later, the whole rig would have fallen on our heads. My team and I are shell-shocked and unable to recover from the trauma.”
Fans and his friends from the music industry took to the comments section to express their shock. Many others even sent out well wishes. Sabyasachi Mishra wrote, “Oh God!!! This is so dangerous. We always perform trusting everything is taken care but it's so risky if not done by professionals. Thank God that u are safe but every event organisers and managers should make it a principle to ensure the work is done by professionals with experience. And should not be compromised for low cost.” Jonita Gandhi wrote, “Hugs Ameen.”
