Despite working with high standard safety measures, a painter on the set of Padmavati, met with an accident and passed away yesterday. Amit Ray and Subrata Chakraborty, the Art Directors on the film said, “Padmavati’s sets are completely equipped with the best security measures, this includes workers wearing belts, helmets and harness, despite all of this, no one could foresee such a rare occurrence and unfortunate accident.”
