Superstar Rajinikanth suffered mild bruises while shooting for ace adventurer Bear Grylls’s “Man vs Wild” show at the Bandipur Tiger Reserve on Tuesday (January 28).
Talking to reporters at Chennai airport on his return he said, “I have finished shooting for the ‘Man vs Wild’ episode. I have not received any wounds but some scratches due to little thorns. I am alright,” according to ANI.
Earlier, forest officials had said that Thalaivar twisted his ankle while shooting for the show at the Bandipur Tiger Reserve.
“Rajinikanth lost his balance, twisted his ankle and suffered minor bruises to his hand below the elbow,” a forest official said. “The actor is okay now,” he added.
The forest department put a lot of conditions while permitting the shooting such as filming at own risk and not allowing the crew to use explosives and inflammable materials, according to officials.
Rajinikanth is the second high profile figure to appear in Man Vs Wild after Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
