A real life like shot in one of the scenes, which nearly froze the unit due to fright for a moment .
It so happened that the director, who had undergone a bomb scare in real life.
When a bomb was hurled at him and luckily it burst in mid air just before it reached him, wanted.
To incorporate this particular scene in his film ‘Raavana’. Now, the two leads that is, Aishwarya.
And the south star Vikram, were to be the ones to be attacked with the bomb. For the shoot.
A petrol bomb was to be used, this had to be hurled from a distance of 25 feet, and it was supposed to burst mid air just 15 feet from where the stars were.
This bit of the scene was to be done with utmost accuracy. As everyone on the sets, including the action director were quite tensed, the leading actors, Aishwarya and Vikram, very bravely enacted the scene. The action master also had done the required act perfectly; the bomb exploded exactly the way the director wanted it to.
The actors braved it out and no one had the guts to say that they would not be able to do the stunt scene, out of fear, as no one wanted to upset the respected director’s wish. However, since the shot has already been Okayed, it remains to be seen how effective it will be for the film.
