Actors are generally considered to be pampered a lot, but few realise the risks that come with the job. The risk of injury is something actors normally take in the stride and, sometimes, even the set erected for a film can pose a risk for the artiste. That’s what happened to actor Anjali recently.
The actor was shooting on the sets of director Kalanjiyam’s Oor Suttri Puraanam near Thiruporur and a particular shot required her to walk without footwear.
There were some live wires on the floor which had not been sealed with a tape. Since the other unit members wore footwear, they were not harmed. But Anjali stepped on a live wire barefoot by accident and, due to the powerful electric shock, she was literally thrown back, according to insiders.
She was immediately rushed to her caravan by the unit members and given first aid and treatment. The shoot was cancelled following the mishap. According to sources, the actor is taking rest as she has slight pain in her leg, but is recovering fast.
The actor is expecting the release of Vathikuchi, produced by A R Murgadoss and Fox Star, on March 15.
