Two Bollywood actors, Anil Kumar and Raghav Uday failed to resurface after jumping into the Thippagondanahalli Reservoir near Bangalore on Sunday during the filming of Kannada film Maastigudi.
The two actors jumped from a low-flying helicopter without life jackets while filming a climax scene and are now presumed dead as their bodies have not been found after nearly three days.
A third actor, Duniya Vijay also jumped from the helicopter but was able to get back to the shore safely because he had a life jacket on. Reports say Anil and Raghav weren’t wearing life jackets because the scene required them not to.
The producers of the movie will face a criminal investigation for the death of the actors.
