Ash, Abhi escape unhurt

Havoc was created on the set of Mani Ratnam’s ‘Raavan’ when a tusker went out of control. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan were on the location and had a narrow escape from the wild elephant. It killed the mahout by piercing trunk into him.

The elephant damaged some props and equipments on the set. The elephant blocked the road and made impossible for the crew members to return to their hotel. To ensure safety, the forest officials moved some members including Ash and Abhi to a safer place of Vazhachal area in the vicinity.

After struggling for few hours, the tusker was brought under control.

Mani’s 'Raavan’ has already been delayed for various reasons and now the tusker incident has brought the shooting to a halt for sometime.
