Tamil superstar Vikram’s son Dhruv, who will be making his debut this year met with an accident on 12th August. His car rammed into three stationary auto rickshaws injuring three people.
Dhruv was reportedly driving his luxury car with three of his friends. He lost control of his car near the Teynampet police commissioner's house, colliding with three auto rickshaws on the road.
The auto rickshaws were badly mangled. One of the auto drivers was sleeping inside the auto and suffered severe injuries and is currently being treated in a hospital.
Police officials from the Pondy Bazaar station rushed to the spot after learning about the incident and instantly registered a case. An investigation is being carried out currently. According to a report from Mirror Now, “The car sped away from the spot after ramming into autorickshaws on TTK road. The car did not stop in spite of police efforts. It eventually came to a halt after it lost control and hit a wall near Alwarpet.”

Vikram’s manager Suryanarayanan has issued a statement that suggests Dhruv wasn't driving under the influence of alcohol. The statement stated, “While returning from a friend’s house on early Sunday morning, Dhruv’s car crashed into autorickshaws. One person was injured in the accident and he was immediately rushed to the hospital. He was treated for his injuries and later discharged. We would like to clarify that the accident happened only due to lack of attention behind the wheels and no other reason.”
He was released on station bail after no official complaint was filed against him by the people affected in the accident. The police are reportedly in the process of ascertaining whether it was a case of drinking and driving or not.
Dhruv is currently shooting for the movie 'Varma' with director Bala. The movie is a remake of the Telugu hit film 'Arjun Reddy' starring Vijay Deverakonda and Shalini Pandey. The film is expected to release later this year.
