Kangana Ranaut, who is currently in Atlanta to shoot for her upcoming film Simran, which is being directed by Hansal Mehta, met with a car accident when her driver blacked out after a coughing fit and the vehicle went out of control. However, fortunately, the curly-haired lass escaped with a few minor scratches.

From what we have heard, the incident took place when the group was returning from the shooting location, which was outside Georgia, to their hotel in Atlanta, the state’s capital. A local driver was behind the wheel and while driving in the leftmost lane (meant for fast-moving traffic) on highway 381, he started coughing profusely and then blacked out while the car was still moving! When the driver blacked out, Kangana’s local bodyguard, who was sitting next to the driver, tried to control the car’s movement by maneuvering the steering wheel but couldn’t control the vehicle, which swerved to the right and cut through three of the highway’s lanes sharply, before banging into an iron fence. Kangana had a few minor scratches on her elbows and her forehead that bled a little, but was otherwise unhurt.

Kangana will be seen playing a bank robber in the film, which is loosely based on the life of Sandeep Kaur, a registered nurse, who took to robbing banks to finance her gambling addiction and was convicted of robbing four banks in USA, following which, she was sentenced for 66 months in April 2015.
