Ganja Karuppu, the upcoming comedian and character artist of Kollywood, whose work in Subramaniapuram (also referred to as Subramaniyapuram) was raved about, was injured in a freak accident during the shooting of Aaru Maname.
In this film, Ganja Karuppu has double roles: an auto rickshaw driver and a flower vendor.
While filming a chase scene in Kovur, Ganja Karuppu was required to drive the auto rickshaw at high speed. He was going great until he lost his balance and steered the vehicle on a heap of stones on the side of the road; the auto rickshaw turned turtle and Ganja Karuppu injured his right leg badly. He was immediately rushed to a hospital nearby, where he received adequate treatment.
He has been advised rest. Following this accident, the shooting of Aaru Maname has been cancelled.
