Actress Lakshmi Rai was injured during the shooting of the film Dham Dhoom. Jeeva, the director of 12 B and Unnale Unnale is directing the film Dham Dhoom and the major portions of the are being shot at the icy locations of the Russian capital Moscow. Jayam Ravi, Kangana Ranaut, and Lakshmi Rai have been taking part in the shooting for the past one month in Moscow.
Two days ago, a scene was being shot by the director in which Jayam Ravi is shown running with his lover Lakshmi Rai to escape from the villains. Ravi did his part well, but Lakshmi Rai required many takes. After the 9th take, Lakshmi got tired. When the director shouted 'action' for the shooting to begin, the actress again ran with Ravi on the icy surface and slipped into the nearby icy lake. The unit people rushed to the spot immediately, and took her out. After giving her first aid treatment and a brief rest, the unit continued with the shooting.
Lakshmi Rai shared this experience with the Kollywood press people yesterday after her return from the Moscow shoot.
