Mahesh Nair says his directorial debut “Accident On Hill Road” is not based on Bollywood Superstar Salman Khan’s infamous hit-and-run but admits that the film refers to it. “The story is not based on Salman Khan’s accident, but there is a reference to Salman Khan incident,”.

In September 2002, Bollywood Superstar Salman Khan drove his jeep over some people sleeping outside a bakery on Hill Road junction in Bandra here, killing one and causing serious injuries to three people.

“Salman Khan did one accident, but in India 250 accidents take place every hour. There are reports on it. This film is based on accident and every one of us have either met with one or has heard of it from friends,” he added.

Nair informs that it is based on a real incident that happened in the US.

“There was an incident similar to the plot of the film that happened in the US. The incident was that a woman hit a man then drove home and parked the car in the garage with the man wedged halfway through her windshield,” he said.

“There is already a film on this incident and we have adapted from it. We bought its rights,” he added.

Asked how is it different from the original film, he said: “It shows what a person originally does if he meets or sees an accident - either he calls police or just passes by as if nothing has happened or tries to help the victim. The film portrays realistic angles.”

Talking about Salman’s incident, he said: “From the Salman Khan incident I have taken that some people do severe accidents, but nothing happens to them and they resume a normal life.”
