Actor-filmmaker Kamal Haasan, who was under medical care at a private hospital after he hurt his leg in an accident, was discharged on Friday.
“Kamal sir was discharged earlier this morning. He still hasn’t completely recovered. He can barely move, so doctors have advised him to rest for the next few weeks,” a source close to the actor said.
Kamal Haasan was hospitalised after he fell off the stairs at his residence last month. The fall resulted in three fractures and he had to undergo an opeation. The injury also resulted in the postponement of shoot of his upcoming trilingual comedy “Sabash Naidu”.
“The second schedule of the film was supposed to start in July. But after the accident, it has been postponed to September.
The filmmaker was awarded the national film award thrice. He also grabbed two honorary awards, the Padma Bhusan and Padma Shri.
Kamal Haasan is directing as well playing the lead in Sabash Naidu, which is simultaneously being made in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi.
Also starring Ramya Krishnan, Shruti Haasan, Brahmanandam and Saurabh Shukla, Sabash Naidu is based on the spin-off of Balram Naidu character from Haasan’s 2010 Tamil blockbuster Dasavatharam. – CINEWS
