The crane accident that took place on the sets of Indian 2 left everyone in a state of shock. On February 19 the incident had taken place at the EVP Film City in Poonamallee, Chennai. A crane carrying flash light fell on the sets that cost lives of three technicians (Krishna – Assistant Director, Chandran – Art Assistant, Madhu – Production Assistant) and left nine other injured. The film’s director Shankar and lead actors Kamal Haasan and Kajal Aggarwal narrowly escaped from the disaster. The actor has now issued a letter to Lyca Productions (the banner under which Indian 2 is produced) asking the safety measures taken for the people involved in the shoot.
