Washington: Christoph Waltz was left shaken after his television interview was interrupted by gunfire.

The ` Django Unchained` star was being interviewed for France`s Le Grand Journal at the Cannes Film Festival on Friday when gunshots were heard and he was quickly rushed to safety, Contactmusic reported.

He told a UK magazine that he was on a panel at the Studio Canal platform off the beach when a man produced a gun.

The actor thinks that the man fired from what looked like a pistol but luckily for him they were blanks.

The Oscar winner asserted that the man threatened that he had a grenade but he did not have one.

Waltz said that the police tackled the man to the ground, insisting that he didn`t know who he was or what his problem was.

The culprit was arrested at the scene and cops found that he was carrying a fake grenade and a knife.

A police source said that the man really appeared to be a crazy person.

No injuries were reported at the spot and the telecast resumed a few minutes later.
