Elephant goes against script; sends man flying away as he attempts recreating ‘Baahubali’
It is said that the man was attempting to re-create Baahubali moment but it went horribly wrong.
As the man tried to close in on the elephant despite being drunk, the elephant gave a nudge so bad that he went flying away and fell at a distance.
The whole incident has been captured on mobile camera and has gone viral since. The man is said to be inspired from Baahubali and was trying to pull off a stunt similar to what Prabhas did in the blockbuster flick.
He has since been hospitalized. The footage, recorded by a friend, was being beamed live on Facebook. Though it was quickly taken down from Facebook, the video has gone viral on social media.
Shot on Sunday in Idduki district’s Thodupuzha, the video shows a man wearing a white shirt and a lungi walking perilously close to the elephant. At first, it seems like he is trying to befriend the elephant by feeding it bananas, which it happily accepts.
Then the man suddenly grabs the jumbo’s tusks and tries to “kiss” its trunk.>
