Actress Prarthana Behere who is best known for her role in Zee TV’s hit show “Pavitra Rishta” as Vaishali, on screen sister of lead actress Ankita Lokhande has recently met with an accident.
The actress injured in a road accident near Lonavala town on Pune-Mumbai expressway, police said. The incident occurred when Behere (25) was travelling to Kolhapur, located around 239 kms away from here, for promotion of a Marathi film along with co-actor Aniket Vishwasrao and her hair stylist.
“The driver of the car in which Behere and others were travelling in lost his control over the vehicle while trying to avoid hitting a tempo parked at roadside. However, he rammed into the same tempo,” a district police officer said.
“We were travelling at a very high speed and the driver lost control of the vehicle when he tried to avoid a stranded tempo. Our car rammed into a rock. I was asleep and escaped unhurt, however, Prarthana fractured her right hand. It could have been fatal if it was not for that stone, we would have gone into a ditch nearby. It all happened in a fraction of a second,” said Aniket Vishwasrao.
It is also reported that the actress was soon rushed to a nearby private hospital, while Vishwasrao went ahead to Kolhapur for the film promotions.
We wish the actress for speedy recovery!
