Actor Kamal Haasan is deeply pained by the horrific accident on the sets of his film Indian 2 that claimed the lives of three and injured nine others. He took to Twitter to offer condolences to the families of the deceased.
Kamal wrote that though he has overcome several accidents, this accident was the most horrific one that he has ever experienced. He added that though he was extremely saddened by the loss of three colleagues, the grief of their family members was far greater than his own. He offered condolences to the families of the deceased, saying that he shares their grief as one of them.
In another tweet, Kamal wrote that he has spoken with the doctors who were treating the crew members injured in the accident and hoped for their speedy recovery.
