Actress Sruthi Raj was saved from the turbulent tide yesterday at Chennai while she was shooting for Sanjay Ram's Iyakkam. Sruthi Raj, who acted in movies including Kathal Dot Com, Mandhiran and Jerry, is now acting in Iyakkam and two more films in Tamil. While she was shooting for Iyakkam at the coastal area of Neelankarai, the sea was very rough with turbulent waves.
The director wanted to shoot the film in a natural setting. So the actress also co operated with the unit and went close to the tides. Suddenly she was washed ashore by a huge wave. Sruthi Raj had almost lost her control but was fortunately saved by the local fishermen, who pulled her out of sea. She was rushed to a hospital immediately and the shooting was called off for the day. Sruthi Raj, according to the hospital sources, is now out of danger.
