The feat was part of the shooting for the picture ‘Masti Gudi’ starring Duniya Vijay, who swam to care.
Bengaluru: In a tragic turn of actions, two Kannada actors were feared dead later a movie stunt went horribly incorrect at Tippagondanahalli Lake in Bengaluru.
The performers were filming the stunts for a future film ‘Masti Gudi,’ which stars Duniya Vijay in the main role.
While shooting the scene, Vijay and the two actors, Anil and Uday, jumped into the river from a helicopter. While the lead actor swam on shore, the other two didn’t surface for a long time, post which a search party was immediately send off.
But, the police and the film crew trust that the chances of saving them are extremely slim.
The occurrence, which took place around 3 pm on Monday, allegedly happened due to insufficient safety precautions. Reportedly, there had been no earlier rehearsal to gauge the safety risks, either.
