For the last few days the shoot of Dhanush-Hansika-Manisha Maapillai was going on in a village near Tirunelveli.

The scene being shot by director Suraj was a village Thiruvizha (Temple festival) scene for which almost the entire star cast was present.

Six tractors were being used in the song sequences and one of them suddenly went out of control and ploughed into the unit and four people were injured in the melee. Says Hansika: “ Dhanush and me were doing this song sequence when a tractor went berserk. It would have hit me but I was saved by Dhanush who pushed me away at the right time.”

The unit has cancelled the shoot which was to be over only by April 7. Dhanush visited the Tirunelveli hospital where the injured were admitted
