Actor-filmmaker Kamal Haasan, who is recovering from a leg injury, will rejoin the sets of his upcoming trilingual comedy Sabash Naidu from the second week of September, according to a source. Having fractured his leg in a fall from his office stairs, Haasan has been out of action for the past two weeks.
“It’s going to take him two or three more weeks to get fully fit. He’s currently on physiotherapy and has also started gymming to strengthen his leg. Although he has started moving, he is still dependent on assistance,” a source close to the actor told IANS.
“As of now, the plan is to resume shooting from the second week of September. The next schedule will start in Vishakhapatnam. Nearly half of the film has already been completed,” he said.
Kamal, meanwhile, updated fans about his health on his Twitter page.“Stitches off. Hobbling up to the gym past 2 days. Physio at full swing. Thank you all who persisted and insisted on my getting better soon,” Haasan wrote. Sabash Naidu, which is being helmed by Kamal, is simultaneously being made in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi.
Also starring Shruti Haasan, Brahmanandam, Ramya Krishnan and Saurabh Shukla, the film stars Kamal in the lead and has music by maestro Ilayaraja.
Actor-filmmaker had earlier undergone a lot of shuffling since it went on the floors. After director T.K Rajeev Kumar exited the project following ill-health, the film’s editor and cinematographer had been reportedly changed. Rajeev was originally supposed to helm the project, which is currently being made in Tamil, Telugu, and Hindi.
“When Rajeev fell ill and was subsequently hospitalised, Kamal took over the directorial responsibility. Few days after the team started shooting in Los Angeles, editor James Joseph had to exit the project to attend to his wife who had met with an accident in Kerala,” a source from the film’s unit told IANS.
