Popular actor Aruldoss was injured during the recent shooting schedule of superstar Rajinikanth’s upcoming film Kaala Karikaalan directed by Pa. Ranjith.
Set in the backdrop of Mumbai’s Tamil-populated Dharavi, the shoot of Kaala commenced a few months back. It has Easwari Rao pairing up opposite Rajini for the first time.
Bollywood’s Huma Qureshi, Marathi actress Anjali Patil, Nana Patekar, Samuthirakani and Aruldoss play prominent roles in the film which has music by Ranjith’s favourite Santosh Narayanan, who also scored the music of Rajini’s last year’s colossal hit film Kabali directed by Ranjith.
Aruldoss, who had starred in films such as Neerparavai, Soodhu Kavvum and Naan Mahaan Alla, had also worked as cinematographer in films but his passion for acting made him an actor. During the shoot of Kaala at the EVP Theme Park in Poonamallee off Chennai, a sequence was filmed wherein Aruldoss takes on a gang of thugs who make an attempt to attack Kaala, the don (Rajini) in the film.
During the shoot, Aruldoss missed his timing when he jumped from a moving jeep and fell flat on the ground. The jeep unfortunately ran over his legs, crushing his fingers. The shoot was called off immediately and Aruldoss was rushed to a nearby hospital where he is under treatment and would be out of action at least for a month’s time.
