Stuntman dies at Aravaan Shooting


Reports say that a stuntman has died unfortunately under tragic circumstances during the on-going shooting of director Vasanthabalan’s upcoming film ‘Aravaan’ starring Aadhi in the lead.

The shooting of ‘Aravaan’, which pairs Aadhi and Dhansika for the first time as on-screen pair, was being held in the temple town of Madurai for the past few days. A fight sequence was being filmed when the mishap occurred and the unfortunate stuntman died on the spot.

The local police was immediately informed about it. A police team visited the shooting spot, recovered the body and sent it for post-mortem to the Madurai Govt. Hospital. Only after ascertaining from the doctors that the death was a ‘natural one’ did the police hand over the body to the grieving relatives of the stuntman.

The shooting was suspended for a day as a mark of respect to the departed soul and then started a day later. The film also has Bollywood’s Kabir Bedi in a ‘special’ role, it is learnt.
