The crew of
the Tamil film Yen Ippadi Mayakinai, shooting in Bangalore, was
attacked by the members of the Kannada Rakshina Vedike (KRV), a
pro-Kannada organization. The director of the film Krishna (of
Sillunnu Oru Kadhal) and two of his associates were
injured in the attack. The shooting was cancelled immediately and
the crew returned to Chennai yesterday.
The shooting was taking place in Fraser Town and the unit had
enough police protection as precautionary measure. Suddenly, a
group of KRV activists entered into the place after breaking the
protection and attacked the crew. They strongly opposed all
activities of Tamil film people inside the state.
Rishi alias Richard is the hero of Yen Ippadi Mayakkinai and
Kirath is heroine.
