As part of the scene, Hero Duniya Vijay was supposed to chase the two villains (Anil Kumarand, Uday Venkatesh) who jump from the helicopter. While Duniya Vijay wore a life jacket, The two villains couldn't use a life jacket as they have to shoot the scene with bare body. At the three of them jumped from the chopper, The water flow is heavy in the reservoir and this led to tragedy. After swimming for 50 metres, The two actors got drowned. Duniya Vijay who was wearing a life jacket was rescued by a local.
