Malayalam Actress Manju Warrier and director Sanal Kumar Sasidharan are stuck in Himachal Pradesh due to floods.
The actress had called her brother Madhu Warrier last night and informed that she along with the film’s crew—including director Sasidharan—are stuck at Chatru in Himachal Pradesh.
They were released later on Tuesday and brought to Manali, news agency ANI quoted Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Jairam Thakur as saying.
Thakur was informed of the crew's plight by Minister of State V Muraleedharan, who was apprised of the situation by Madhu on a call.
Muraleedharan later said the Mandi district administration was in touch with the stranded crew members and evacuation efforts were on to bring them back to Manali today.
Madhu recalled that her sister had called her on Monday night from a satellite phone and said that about 200 people, including their 30-member crew, was stuck at Chatru. "She was asking for help. The food supplies there are running out, they have food for only one more day. She didn't tell me much as it was only a 15-second call asking for help," she added.
Madhu said that the film crew was there for past three weeks and there was no communication from her because of no signal or internet connectivity.
