Indian 2 is an upcoming Indian Tamil-language vigilante action thriller film directed by S. Shankar. A sequel to the 1996 film Indian, the film is being produced by Subaskaran Allirajah‘s Lyca Productions. The film stars Kamal Haasan and Kajal Aggarwal, with Siddharth, Rakul Preet Singh, and Priya Bhavani Shankar.
Kamal Haasan had a narrow escape from the freak accident that shook the Indian 2 set on Wednesday (February 19) night. A crane fell on technicians leaving three people (Sri Krishna, Madhu and Chandran) dead and 12 people injured in the accident.
The actor reacted quickly and instructed the team to take the injured to the nearest hospital. Ulaganayagan visited the Kilpauk hospital and interacted with the media. He said, “I am donating Rs 1 crore to the family of the deceased. This is not compensation to the lives lost.”
The three men recognized as assistant directors to Shankar were inside the cage-like structure on a crane when it broke and came down crashing on the crew. While the three men lost their lives, nine other crew members were injured in the incident. The accident happened at EVP Film City near Chennai while the actor, Kamal Haasan, was shooting on another set. It is yet to confirm whether director Shankar was present at the scene or not.
Taking to his social media handle, Kamal Haasan expressed his grievances and wrote, “The accident is cruel. I lost three colleagues. More than my pain, the grief of their families would be immense. I share their sorrow. My deep condolences to them.”
Kamal Haasan is currently shooting for the movie, Indian 2, which is a sequel to his movie, Indian, and is being made on a large scale. Helmed by S. Shankar, the movie stars Kamal Haasan and Rakul Preet Singh as the lead characters.
