The security guard told them that the owner of the bungalow has restricted people from eating in the parking. He also asked them to move.
Reportedly, the crew members ignored Gul and this enraged him. The guard fired shots at the ground and the bullets ricocheted, hitting crew members.
Reportedly, Actors Sami Khan and Asma Abbas were also present on the set when the incident happened. Meanwhile, the police were investigating the incident further.
What a tragedy? Last year, another security guard had opened fire in a Karachi park to stop kids from playing football.
