Kannada actor Sudeep has miraculously escaped from a bomb blast while shooting for the film Kempe Gowda at Tailuru in Maddur Taluk, Mandya Thursday afternoon. Kicha was filming a bomb explosion sequence for the climax of the movie at Tailuru when the incident took place. He received the burns on back and right leg in the accident. He was immediately given first aid on the spot.
Kicha Sudeep was filming the sequence in which the hero, played by himself, kidnaps the daughter of the Home Minister. While shooting this scene, he was standing just four feet away from the place, where a bomb was placed in an earthen pot. Although film crew had taken all the precautionary measures before shooting this bomb blast scene, the actor met with injuries on his knee and back. Producer Shankare Gowda says that injuries are minor and there is no need for his fans to feel panic about the incident.
The Sandalwood star was immediately given first aid on the spot. Since the producer had organised for shooting with lot of money, Sudeep continued the shooting of the film Kempe Gowda to avoid the loss to him. After completing the picturisation of the sequence, he returned to Bangalore for the further treatment.
However, the movie Kempe Gowda is a remake of hit Tamil film Singam. Besides playing the hero, Sudeep himself is directing the film. Anchal Sabarwal, Ravishankar P and industrialist Ashok Kheny are in the star cast. The specialty of the film is that Crazy Star Ravichandran has directed and shot a song sequence for it. The producer is planning to release it on January 26.
