“The director and I were also present at the spot. It could have happened to anyone of us,” Kamal Haasan told media on August 6 during a small meet with the press. “We have a bigger responsibility for preventing such accidents in the future. A week after the accident, we all met to discuss what we can do about this. But, due to the COVID, we were unable to meet again.”
Speaking of resuming the shooting, Kamal revealed, “In foreign countries, big thinkers have researched and recommended ways we can safely work on film sets during this COVID pandemic. I think we should also implement those precautions here.”
