'Bheemavaram Bullodu' starring Sunil, produced by ace production house Suresh Productions had its audio launched amidst much fanfare in Bheemavaram on Sunday, however turned out to be a tragedy for the family of a fan who died at the stampede that ensued.
It was learnt that the producers arranged to organize the function at Bheemavaram on Sunil's request and since the title also suggested the same. The ground at the venue was good enough to host around 5000 people but there were fans all over the place and thousands waiting outside too. This resulted in a stampede and the death of a fan named Suresh who was a salesman in Reliance Telecom.
It may be recalled that there were incidents of this nature happened before in filmy functions and hence were reduced to closed affairs with LIVE telecast of the event on satellite television. This accident is sure to force the lawmakers take a strong stance against public events especially when stars of some stature are involved. The film unit members were rather oblivious to the accident since it happened outside the ground.
