Thala Ajith is currently busy shooting for his next in the direction of Siva. The film is titled as Viswaasam and it marks the fourth time collaboration of the actor and director after Veeram, Vedala, and Vivekam. Going by the buzz, a dancer died unexpectedly on the film’s sets while shoot is taking place.
Oviyam Saravanan is the name of dancer who expired on the film’s sets. As a token of respect towards his demise, Ajith cancelled the film’s shoot for the day and has decided to perform the final rites with his own expenses. He also donated Rs 8 lakhs as a financial aid for the deceased family.
Confirming the news to the fans, Tamil film industry journalist Ramesh Bala on Twitter wrote, “During #Viswasam song shoot in #Pune , a dancer #OviyamSaravanan passed away due to ill-health.. May his soul RIP! #Thala #Ajith rushed to the hospital where he was treated..

This is indeed a great gesture from the star hero and this is not the first time that he showered his simple attitude. More power to Ajith!
