Ali Baba: Dastaan-E-Kabul actress Tunisha Sharma hanged herself in a make-up room on the set of her TV show in Naigaon, Mumbai. She was only 20 when she passed away. Industry has lost a talent; mother lost her child and rest all left in smear shock. The news of her untimely demise on December 24 sent shockwaves across the entertainment industry.
The cases of suicidal dates of the young actors and actresses are increasing, and such deaths could have been avoided if the producers keep an eye on such things happening on the sites. All the crew members are hired by the producers for his project and hence it is the responsibility of the producers to look after the well-being, safety and security of the crew members. FWICE strongly demands action on the producers of the show Ali Baba- Dastaan-E-Kabul as the liability of the safety, security of all the crew members depends upon them. Any conspiracy against any crew members should have been traced by the producers and taken immediate action against the erring members. However, the producers are only interested in earning good money with the popularity of the show due to the lead actors and actresses who are followed by the public at large.

In the case of Tunisha Sharma, it was a known fact that there were series of quarrels on the sets of Ali Baba-Dasttan-E-Kabul between Tunisha Sharma and her male lead and supporting actors. The producer should have intervened and counseled them to refrain from getting involved into such things. If needed, the producer also had a choice to remove the erring actor/actress from the show but instead of taking any such action the producer continued shooting with them in fear of losing good money. This hunger for money of the producer has resulted into the death of a teenage actress who must have dreamt of becoming a superstar in the industry.
It has also been reported to the FWICE that on the shooting location where people are working in large numbers, it is mandatory to deploy a well-equipped ambulance for the safety of the crew. However, on the sets of Ali Baba-Dastaan-E-Kabul, the ambulance was not found. Tunisha was carried in a private vehicle to the hospital where she was declared dead. This also is gross negligence on the part of the producers as they are playing with the lives of hundreds of workers employed by them while on shoot. Such acts are highly condemnable, and we demand thorough enquiry of the producer and the other legal, statutory compliances on the sets at the time of the incident.
FWICE strongly demands action against the producer of the show Ali Baba-Dastaan-E-Kabul for their gross negligence in the entire matter and also demand immediate FIR against the duo Alind Shrivastav and Nissar Parvez.
