Filmmaker Gautham Menon met with an accident when he was travelling to Mahabalipuram from Chennai in his car. However, Gautham has, fortunately, escaped with minor injuries. His car had reportedly collided with a tanker lorry, and Gautham rammed his vehicle into the centre median on the road. The police officials have already confirmed that Gautham Menon was under the influence of alcohol. Gautham has thanked an employee named Gopalakrishnan from HCL who has helped him on the spot. “Humbled by the concern and the wishes. A life-altering experience. I’m fine and waiting to start filming. Thank you, especially to Gopalakrishnan from HCL whose kindness last night to me reinstated my faith in people,” posted Gautham on his Twitter page.
