Kerala man's 'Bahubali' stunt fails, hospitalised

Kerala man's 'Bahubali' stunt fails, hospitalised

An agitated elephant flung a youth in the air after he tried to get atop its back.

A Kerala man's attempt to imitate a popular scene from "Baahubali", where Prabhas tames an elephant, went horribly wrong as the jumbo animal did not like the intimacy with which the man was hugging and kissing it.

According to a report by The News Minute, John was badly injured from the attack but is recovering in a local hospital. He can be seen in the video, which has gone viral on internet, lying unconscious on the ground. Though the elephant ate the fruits, it however did not seem to be interested in entertaining the boys. Before the man tried the stunt, he tried to lure the elephant with some bananas. He feeds the hungry tusker more fruits and then, holds its tusks and proceeds to kiss the animal.
