New Delhi:

Three people were killed while nine others were injured in a crane accident on the set of actor Kamal Haasan's upcoming film 'Indian 2' on Wednesday, police said. Haasan was unharmed, film industry sources said, adding that the injured are undergoing treatment at a hospital.

The accident took at suburban Nazrathpet when the crane employed to erect the set crashed, killing three and leaving nine injured, police said, without divulging further details.

The shoot was underway at a private cinema studio, they added.

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.

Initial reports stated that director Shankar also fractured a leg, but the rumours were later shot down. The director's personal assistant Madhu, 29, and assistant director Krishna, 34, died in the accident.

Indian 2, starring Kamal Haasan in the lead role and Kajal Aggarwal, Rakul Preet, Siddharth in pivotal roles, is expected to hit the theatres early 2021. It is the sequel to Kamal Haasan's 1996 film Indian, a vigilante action thriller.
