Career

At a village near Karnal, Haryana, India on 20 January 2007 Maan was involved in a car accident in which his Range Rover was hit and severely damaged by a truck. Maan escaped with minor injuries on his face, hands, and chest. His driver Ganesh was injured seriously but recovered soon after.

This was the second car accident of two that Gurdas Maan was involved in. The first accident was a head-on collision between Maan’s vehicle and a truck on 9 January 2001 at a village near Rupnagar, Punjab. In this accident Maan’s driver, Tejpal died. Maan later admitted that his driver asked him to wear his seat belt minutes before the accident. Maan believes that if it had not been for his driver’s advice, he would have been dead as well. Later he wrote and performed a song “Baithi sade naal savari utter gayi” dedicated to his driver, who was also his good friend.
