The Indian 2 accident has shooked the Kollywood industry as three crew members passed away de to mishandling of a crane on the sets. There are some new reports which are doing rounds on the internet as it claims that a ban was imposed on the EVP Studios, where the accident happened.
Three crew members – assistant director Krishna, art assistant Chandran and production assistant Madhu lost their lives in the incident.
The DT Next said that Chandran, the production assistant is one of the founding members of FEFSI. Today we have lost him due to negligence. EVP Studios was banned by FEFSI and quite a few films were not given permission to shoot in EVP last year. However, the venue reopened after the owners requested us to permit shoots despite accidents that took place. If adequate safety checks were done by FEFSI, we wouldn’t have lost three lives.
According to reports, Film Employees Federation of South India (FEFSI) banned the studio earlier.
The Tamil Nadu Police department has announced that summons would be sent to actor Kamal Haasan and director Shankar following the mishap. According to a report in DT Next, the crane operator was not a trained professional, who did not know to operate the crane properly. After the accident, the operator went under hiding and he was arrested after a thorough search yesterday.
