Tollywood actor Nani suffered minor injuries after his car rammed into an electric pole in Hyderabad's Jubilee Hills area, during the early hours of Friday.
The accident took place on Jubilee Hills Road No. 45, after the actor's driver reportedly dozed off behind the wheel.
The duo was travelling from Jubilee Hills to Gachibowli in a Toyota Innova car, after a shoot.
"The accident occurred around 4.30 am on Friday when the SUV driven by Srinivas with Nani in the backseat, rammed into an electric pole. Fortunately, the airbags installed in the car saved their lives and the impact of the crash was reduced," Sub-Inspector Naresh from the Jubilee Hills police station, was quoted as saying.
Both of them escaped with minor bruises.
A case was booked against the driver, under Section 3 of the PDPP (prevention of damage to public property) Act, and the police said that they were investigating the matter.
Taking to Twitter later, Nani said that he was okay, barring "Just a few bruises here and there."
He also announced that he would take a small break from the shooting of his upcoming film, Krishnarjuna Yudham, and would be back on the sets in a week.
Directed by Merlapaka Gandhi, the film is produced by Sahu Garapati and Harish Peddi under the banner Shine Screens. In the movie, Nani plays dual roles, Krishna and Arjuna, with Anupama Parameswaran and Rukshar Mir playing the female leads.
The team of KAY released the looks of Krishna and Arjun on January 14 and January 15, respectively.
The film is slated to hit the silver screens on April 12 and the promos have already begun taking it to the movie buffs in a big scale.
