Hansika, who has worked alongside most of the southern stars and was last seen in Vikram Prabhu’s Thuppakki Munai, is currently shooting for her 50th film titled Maha. The project and its first look poster were announced by Dhanush via a special tweet in August last year and the makers went on the floors early last year. The makers have so far released multiple posters of Hansika donning different avatars in the film. In one of the posters, she’s seen holding a gun in a bathtub filled with what appears to be blood.

On Monday, Hansika suffered a minor injury on the sets of the film while shooting for an action sequence. Apparently, the scene required her to do a somersault and she bruised herself in the process. “It is an important scene, which she was performing really well. Unfortunately, she slipped and injured her hand. There was some amount of bleeding as well. The team immediately gave her first aid and asked her to head home. But Hansika was keen to continue shoot. She wore a bandage and shot for her portions that didn’t involve any hand movement,” a source was quoted in the Times of India report.

The film is being directed by debutant UR Jameel, a former associate of director Lakshman, who has directed films such as Romeo and Juliet and Bogan. Interestingly, Hansika played the leading lady in both these projects and apparently it was on the sets of Bogan, Jameel impressed the former with a one-liner story. If the industry grapevine is anything to go by, Maha is tipped to be a female-centric film and that’s what got Hansika really excited. The regular shooting is expected to commence in a few weeks. The rest of the cast and crew are yet to be revealed.
