Yesterday, an unfortunate accident on the sets of Indian 2 starring Kamal Haasan, Kajal Agarwala and Rakul Preet Singh, took away the lives of three technicians. The names of the deceased are Sri Krishna, Madhu and Chandran.
Kamal Haasan, who was present on the set, instructed the team to take the injured to the nearest hospital. The superstar himself dropped by the Kilpauk hospital where the deceased were admitted. After learning about the condition and getting the reports, the actor interacted with the media and revealed that he would be donating Rs 1 crore to the families of the deceased.
Addressing the media, Kamal Haasan said, “This incident indicates that the safety of the people in the cine industry is still questionable. I was talking to my friends today morning and as an industry, we need to take measures to make sure that such incidents do not happen in the future. We take pride in saying that a movie is made on so-and-so crore budget and I personally feel ashamed to say that we couldn’t provide safety to the people who work for the film.”
The super star further added, “On my behalf, I am donating Rs 1 crore to the family of the deceased and this is what I can do now. This is not the compensation for what we have lost. Some of them are very poor people. Three years back, I was in an accident. I know how difficult it is to recover from an accident like this. Of the three, only one could probably afford.”
A crane crashed on the set of the film which took away the lives of those three people and left several others injured.
