It was a jolt from the blue when the news spread in the industry that two of the most sought after and aspiring artistes in the South Indian film industry both Prithviraj and Bhavana have been detained in Thailand. It has rocked the industry as not only the two artistes but also the other members of the film crew including Director Shafi, Cinematographer Azhagappan and others have been held captives.
According to sources Thailand has been going through a political unrest. Somchai Vangasavath, the president of Thailand was allegedly involved in a corruption case and the angry citizens took to the streets. Misfortunate as it may be termed, those suffering from their rage and anger are our innocent artistes. The cast and crew of the Malayalam film Lollypop had chosen the wrong hour to land in Bangkok to shoot the remaining portions of the film.
As per the news sources when the shooting was over, they left for the airport. They have been detained there and no news has been procured about their whereabouts. Hardly had the country recovered from the Mumbai terror attacks, when this shocking news has come for the South Indian film industry.
