  • Actor Vikram's son Dhruv rams car into autos in drunken state; 3 people injured [Video]

Iconic South Indian actor Vikram's son, Dhruv, was arrested early Sunday morning after he rammed his vehicle into three auto rickshaws in Chennai's Teynampet area.

Giving clarity on the rumors, an official statement was released revealing that Dhruv indeed rammed into three autorickshaws but he wasn't drunk at the moment. The incident left the rickshaws badly mangled and injured one person. The injured man, Kamesh, has been admitted to the Royapettah government hospital.

In a video that has emerged on social media, one of Dhruv's friends who was in the auto can be seen arguing with the police and saying that he won't get into the police vehicle. Dhruv is all set to make his acting debut in the Tamil remake of Telugu block-buster Arjun Reddy, which is helmed by director Bala.


There were reportedly two more people in the auto with Dhruv. Following this he was arrested and booked for "rash driving" and "causing hurt by act endangering life".

It is yet not confirmed if Dhruv was under the influence of alcohol but it's high time that actors should use drivers when they attend late night parties. "We would like to clarify that the accident happened only due to lack of attention behind the wheels and no other reason". Police sources tell TNM that investigations regarding the case are underway at the J2 Adyar police station.
