    Dangerous stunt goes wrong at birthday celebration for Tamil actor

    An 11-year old boy sustained injuries while attempting a risky martial arts display at an event held to mark actor Vijay's 50th birthday in Chennai. Footage of the incident has been widely shared on social media platforms.

    The celebratory gathering was organised in Neelankarai neighbourhood of the city on Saturday to commemorate Vijay's birthday. According to reports, during the proceedings a young fan of the actor tried to perform a stunt where he had to break tiles that were set alight using only his bare hands. However, things took a dangerous turn as the flames quickly spread to his hand, causing him to panic. In his attempt to swiftly put out the fire, the stage also got engulfed in flames. Thankfully onlookers acted promptly to help douse the fire and prevent any further damage.

    Police stated that the boy suffered burns to 3 to 5 percent of his right hand. Even so, no legal action will be initiated against the organisers as per the request of the injured child's family. It is noteworthy that Vijay had urged his supporters and party members to refrain from birthday celebrations out of respect for the over 50 lives lost in a recent hooch tragedy in the state.

    While such displays of fandom and admiration for celebrities are common, safety should always be the top priority especially when involving children. This incident serves as a reminder of the risks of unregulated stunts and performances. With careful planning and supervision, fans can still celebrate public figures in a manner that does not endanger lives.
