Actor Vishal who has started acting in his third production venture ‘Poojai’ directed by Hari has been severely injured while shooting a stunt scene recently in Chennai.
The first schedule of this Vishal-Sruthi Haasan starrer is currently happening in Chennai. Sruthi Haasan’s part in this schedule has been completed and she has left to Mumbai last week to concentrate on other projects.
Following that Hari has been shooting a stunt sequence with Vishal in a private studio at Saligramam. A grand set costing one crore rupees has been erected for this stunt sequence within the studio.
In a particular shot Vishal had to blow a stunt artiste. Since the stunt artiste escaped getting hit, Vishal’s right hand dashed at a metal that was kept behind.
Due to this the middle finger in Vishal’s right hand got injured and he had to be rushed to hospital since blood was oozing out. 14 stitches have been administered in the injured finger of Vishal and doctors have advised a week’s rest for the actor cum producer.
Owing to this the ‘Poojai’ shooting was temporarily halted and it is expected to resume in a couple of days. However Vishal will return to the sets only after two weeks as reported by sources.
We at TamilWire.net wish the ‘Pandiyanadu’ actor a speedy recovery.
