In a rather worrisome development, cinematographer-turned-actor Aruldoss picked up an injury while shooting for Rajinikanth starrer ‘Kaala’ in Chennai. Opening up about the mishap which left him injured, he told a leading website that he was shooting for a scene that required him to dance in front of a jeep when the accident occurred.
“This injury happened last Sunday when we were shooting a song sequence. According to the scene, we should be dancing in front of a slowly moving jeep, and when we shot that, the jeep hit me and I fell down. Not just that, it ran over my leg, and my leg finger got fractured. The shooting was stopped immediately and I was rushed to the hospital.”
He went on to add that he has been advised bed rest and will rejoin the shoot in a few days.
“I have been advised to rest for another ten days and I will join the shoot very soon,” he added.
Well, we hope that Aruldoss recovers soon and stays safe in the future.
On a related note, ‘Kaala’ is touted to be a crime-drama and is being directed by Pa Ranjith. A Dhanush production, it features ‘Thalaivaa’ in the role of a don/gangster and will hit screens next year. As it so happens, ‘Kaala’—which also features B-town diva Huma Qureshi in the lead—has already created a buzz amongst fans courtesy its powerful posters and could turn out to be a big hit at the box office.
