Brimming with excitement over the release of ‘Viswasam’ on Thursday, ardent fans of ‘Thala’ Ajith climbed on to a massive cut-out of their idol in Villupuram to garland it and do ‘pal-abishekam’, only for it to come crashing down.
The flimsy board, which could easily be nearly 30 feet tall, could not withstand the weight of the fans who were crawling up. Those who were standing on the cut-out and those near it were injured.
Dear @CMOTamilNadu – Please Ban tall cutouts for all movie stars throughout tamilnadu . This should never ever repeat – Prayers to family of the injured !! #Viswasam pic.twitter.com/Z60VvXiCnv— Prashanth Rangaswamy (@itisprashanth) January 10, 2019
Although Ajith was the first Tamil actor to dissolve his fan club, his followers continue to celebrate his films and show their love for him in whatever way possible. Earlier this year, one of the clubs members set up an LED cut-out for the star, which is said to be the first of its kind.
