It was a usual day for Ashiesh Roy when he reported for the shooting of Aek Chabi Hai Padoss Mein, until he met with an accident and injured his back. "We were shooting at Madh Island. There was a sequence where we were shooting the entry scene of my sister-in-law Moulli (wife's sister) played by Shweta Gulati. In the sequence my wife Mahua forces Moulli (who has just returned from London) to trade her mini skirt for sari to suit the sensibilities of our neighbours. And as the scene goes, Moulli trips and falls on me," Ashiesh says.

He adds, "We were rehearsing for the scene, when all of a sudden I felt a jerk in my back. I realised that I must have pulled a muscle in my back. I felt a terrible pain but I could not do anything about it because I had promised Shweta that I would not let her fall down. After that, I rested for a while but continued shooting till the unit called for a pack up. Simply, because I didn't want the producers to suffer losses."

Killer instinct: Shweta Gulati"The unit members and Shweta in particular were feeling very guilty about the whole incident. In my zeal to do the scene, I too didn't realise that I need to take extra care of my back, which has been giving me trouble for a long time. (He had first injured his back while he was acting in one of Paritossh Painter's plays.) Now I have been advised complete bed rest and lie down for most of the day," Ashiesh says.

Ashiesh's shooting his been put on hold for the moment and The actor says he finds it very depressing and frustrating to be at home without being able to go to work. "I am not allowed to get up from the bed. I have kept a stove close to my bed from where I can make myself instant noodles," he says. When contacted, director Sohail Katari confirmed the incident and expressed his concern towards the same.
