Stunt master Ravi Verma has told the Karnataka High Court that he was not the one who directed the helicopter stunt sequence that resulted in the deaths of actors Anil and Uday. He got bail from the high court on December 15.
In the order copy the court has recorded the submission made by his advocate which says, "Learned counsel for the 2nd petitioner submits that the 2nd petitioner is a stunt Director. A stunt Director will direct the stunt scenes only. In the present case, jump of the stunt actors from the Helicopter to the water was not at his direction. It is sheer accidental death. The stunt actors who are majors had consented to jump from the Helicopter, but after fall, could not swim. Enough arrangement was made to meet the casualty. Unfortunately, the boat which was kept ready at the spot did not start and the swimmers could not reach the deceased persons in time, though they were able to rescue the Hero."
