Chennai: Film director Soundarya Rajinikanth’s car rammed into an auto rickshaw at Alwarpet here in the wee hours of today.
An eye witness said the car crashed onto the auto from behind, when the driver, Mani, was seated inside. The accident left Mani injured and the vehicle badly damaged.
It is reportedly said that Soundarya’s brother-in-law and actor Dhanush bailed her out of the situation over phone as the actor is out of the city. The auto driver was admitted to a private hospital for treatment.
Meanwhile, the police have started inquiring about the incident, though no case has been registered so far. The police are also collecting CCTV footage from the scene.
