Post Surgery, Kamal Haasan Still Under Medical Care in Hospital


Chennai: Actor-filmmaker Kamal Haasan, who fractured his leg after slipping and falling from the stairs of his office nearly two weeks ago, is still undergoing treatment in a private hospital, a source said.

“He’s still expected to stay in the hospital for a few more days. Having already undergone a minor surgery for compound fracture, he’s currently kept under observation,” a source close to the actor told IANS.

The Vishwaroopam star has been advised complete rest for at least a month. “The doctors have instructed him to rest for a month. He was all set to commence the second schedule of his upcoming trilingual film from the last week of July. However, due to this unfortunate incident, the shoot has now been pushed to September,” the source said.

Mr Haasan is directing as well as playing the lead in Sabash Naidu, which is being made in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. The film, which is slated to release next year, has music by maestro Ilayaraja. It also stars his daughter Shruti Haasan.
