The Rendavadhu Padam team, led by director CS Amudhan was shooting at Pondicherry for an action sequence. The scene was to take a wheel, hit the bridge, break a part of it and fall down. But the targeted bridge belonged to year 1840 and was built by the French. The bridge that connects Pondy and Cuddalore has remained unused for years, but for the morning walkers and cyclists.
The locals supposedly became agitated at the film makers’ act and seem to have attacked the crew. It is said that the team literally had to run away from the spot, in order to escape any possible mishap.
Two crew members have reportedly been arrested for causing damage to the public property. The equipments and vehicles used to damage the bridge have also been allegedly seized.
