‘High-voltage’ drama was reported from Chhattisgarh, where a man climbed an electricity tower after his wife refused to return from her parent’s home. The man, identified as Horilal Pardi, reportedly came to pick up his wife. However, when he found out that his father-in-law was refusing to send her back home, the man climbed a high-tension electricity tower, and threatened to jump from it if his wife refused to come with him.

Locals at Durg district were witness to the dramatic actions of 30-year-old Horilal Pardi climbing on top of the 120 ft high-tension electricity tower, and threatening to jump from the top. Reportedly, he had come to the Ganiyari village to pick up his wife. However, he was dismayed when his father-in-law refused to send his daughter back to Horilal Pardi.

After repeated failed attempts at convincing his father-in-law, Horilal decided to do what Veeru did in 1975 classic film Sholay. He started climbing up the high-tension tower. When he crossed the 70 feet mark, the locals presumed that he was serious, and alerted the police.

After six-hours of convincing and persuading, Horilal finally decided to climb down. According to reports, the man used to fight with his fight in the influence of alcohol, and hence, his wife had left him and had gone to her parent’s home.

The Facts of the Matter

1975 classic Bollywood film Sholay is known for its great acting, its hair-raising soundtrack, and gritty story. It’s also known for its monologues, and certain scenes. One of the most memorable scenes was that of Veeru, played by Dharmendra, climbing on a water tank, and threatening to take his life if Basanti (Hema Malini) doesn’t marry him.

Reality imitated fiction recently in Chhattisgarh where a man hailing from Bhilai, jumped a high-tension electricity tower, and threatened to kill himself after his wife refused to come to his home from her maternal home. The entire “high-voltage” drama was caught on video, visuals of which, are going viral.
