Expressing condolence over the death of the three people, Kamal Haasan tweeted in Tamil, “Although seen many accidents but today’s accident is horrible. I lost three friends. Rather than my pain, their family has more suffering. My deepest condolences.”
Kamal Haasan also visited the injured in the hospital. He said they were given first aid and are being treated and he hoped they would soon recover.
‘Indian 2’, directed by S Shankar, stars Kamal Haasan, Kajal Aggarwal, Rakul Preet Singh, Siddharth and Priya Bhavani Shankar in the lead roles. It is a sequel to Kamal Haasan’s 1996 film of the same name.
