Police in southern India have launched an investigation after two actors died while filming an helicopter stunt for their latest action movie.
The two men, Anil Kumar and Raghav Uday, who jumped into the water from a low-flying helicopter for the climax scene of their latest action movie, failed to resurface and have been presumed dead.
Another actor, Duniya Vijay, who also jumped in made it out of the water alive. Surprisingly, the only survivor Vijay told reporters before Monday’s stunt scene:
“I will go for this shot with all faith in God,”
The crew were shooting above the Thippagondanahalli Reservoir, 35km west of Bangalore, yesterday afternoon local time. According to reports, a safety boat failed to pull them out of the water in time.
