A fire accident has been reported at the office of Mani Ratnam’s Madras Talkies located in Abiramapuram Chennai, on Monday afternoon.
Though the fire service department has been immediately alerted and the personnel have promptly doused the fire, sad part is that materials worth of lakhs of rupees have been gutted by the fire.
The primary reason that caused the outbreak of fire is yet to be ascertained. Since construction works were going on at Mani’s office, located at Abiramapuram, chances are the fire might’ve been caused because of a short circuit, it is said.
The ace director is currently busy with this film Kaatru Veliyidai which stars Karthi and Aditi Rao Hydari. It is to be noted that Madras Talkies is bankrolling the film.
The second schedule of shoot is presently going on in Puducherry after finishing the first in Ooty. In the movie, Karthi plays a pilot, and is said to romance with Aditi Rao Hydari who plays the role of a doctor.The makers of the movie unveiled the first look poster recently giving a glimpse of the chemistry the lead actors will share in the film.
