In a shocking turn of events, a crane crashed and fell on the sets of Shankar’s Indian 2 where Kamal Haasan and Kajal Aggarwal were shooting. The set was being constructed at the shooting spot when a crane unexpectedly fell and crashed brutally taking the lives of 3 people and injuring more than 10 people.

Kamal Haasan took to Twitter to share the mishap. “I have faced and overcome many accidents, but today’s is the most horrific one. I lost three colleagues. The distress of their family members will be many times greater than my own pain. I share their grief as one of them. My deepest condolences to them,” he wrote.

Now, Pooja Kumar also voiced her opinion with regard to the tragic accident and reminisced her fond memory with assistant director Krishna. He wrote, “I’m deeply saddened by the tragic accident on the sets of #Indian2Accident. My deepest sympathies to the families who have lost their loved ones and personally to me #krishna. I worked with you on #vishwaroop and will cherish the memories forever. You have gone too soon.”


It was initially reported that director Shankar had fractured his leg but the rumours were later shut. However, Shankar’s assistant Madhu, 29, and assistant director Krishna, 34, died in the accident.

On hearing the shocking news Kamal rushed to the spot and ensured that the injured are rushed to the hospital on time.

The accident happened when a light set-up on top of a crane fell on the crew who were at the spot. The rope that was used to hold up the set-up gave way, say reports.

Director Shankar was working close to the spot but had a miraculous escape.

Whereas Kajal Aggarwal confirmed that Kamal and herself were sitting inside the tent on top of which the crane actually fell. Talking about the tragic incident, Kajal said, “Words cannot describe the heartache I feel at the unexpected, untimely loss of my colleagues from last night. Krishna, Chandran, and Madhu. Sending love, strength and my deepest condolences to your families. May God give strength in this moment of desolation. #Indian2.”
