Actor Dhanush has played down rumours that he was involved in a mishap while shooting for Bharat Bala’s ‘Mariyaan’ near Kanyakumari recently.
It may be noted that talk was doing the rounds that he was involved in the incident while filming a sequence in the sea along with Appukutty when a fierce gush of wind toppled the boat and a group of fishermen who were along with the crew for security purposes rescued the two actors.
Denying this, he said: ‘Guys the boat accident never happened. We went into the ocean. And the ocean took care of us very well. It’s just a rumour.’
The films sees Dhanush play a fisherman in the movie and shooting is in progress in and around Kanyakumari presently.
It is interesting to note that such rumours are quite natural when films are shot in risky locales. The rumour, more often than not, prove to be just rumours but they serve another purpose, i.e., they make people talk about the movie. Dhanush is obviously not interested in such publicity and hence he has immediately issued a denial.
