A six-year-old boy was killed on Friday in a car accident during a television serial shoot in Hyderabad at the city outskirts.

The mishap occurred when a Telugu television actor lost control over the vehicle while shooting, and hit Satvik Reddy, killing the minor on the spot, Chandanagar police said.

"Some people had gathered to watch the shoot. The actor lost control over the car and hit a road divider before hitting the victim who was watching the shoot," a police official said.

Another girl, who was injured in the accident, has been admitted to a private hospital, police added.

The actor was not identified and further investigations are on.
