Yesterday, three technicians lost their lives on the sets of Kamal Haasan-Kajal Aggarwal and Rakul Preet Singh starrer film, Indian 2. It was a freak accident that nobody anticipated resulting in three deaths and several others were injured. Thankfully, none of the three actors were hurt. However, the very incident shook the whole cast and crew along with the film fraternity. They expressed their condolences and reported the haunting incident to their fans. The names of the deceased are Sri Krishna, Madhu and Chandran.
Kamal Haasan took the responsibility and instructed the team to take the injured to the nearest hospital. The superstar himself dropped by the Kilpauk hospital where they 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.

"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 Vishwaroopam actor said, addressing the media.
"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." He added further.
May the deceased, rest in peace.
