Not one not 2 but 4 similar type of accidents have taken place in EVP - #Indian2 #Bigil #Kaala and #BigBoss2 is there something seriously wrong with the way equipment is being handled ? They need to get that place completely inspected for future potential threats @LycaProductions— Cine Time Canada (@CineTimeCanada) February 20, 2020
It is worth mentioning here that Lyca Productions head A Subaskaran has also been booked in the freak accident, and it was later found that they did not hold the proper no-objection certificate to conduct the shooting. It is also worth mentioning here that EVP Film City, Chennai where the accident took place has in recent times inadvertently played host to a number of deaths, all during filming.
