Actor-filmmaker Kamal Haasan has been admitted to Sri Ramachandra Medical Centre (SMRC) hospital in Porur, Chennai, after complaining of uneasiness and fever. Kamal, who was in Hyderabad a few days ago, is expected to be “discharged in a day or two.”

A statement issued by the hospital read, “Sri Kamal Haasan was admitted on 23.11.2022 with mild fever, cough & cold. He is recovering well and will be discharged in a day or two.”

Kamal Haasan has currently got his hands full with Shankar’s Indian 2, the reality show Bigg Boss Tamil, as well as his political duties. Indian 2 has been mired in several controversies owing to the legal battles between Shankar and Lyca Productions, as well as an on-set accident that halted filming for a prolonged period of time. The production of the film resumed earlier this year.

Haasan had recently visited his frequent collaborator, director K Vishwanath at his residence in Hyderabad. The star had taken to Instagram to post a picture of himself taking the blessings of Viswanath. “Met the master #k.viswanath sir at his home.Lots of nostalgia and respect!!,” he captioned the photo. They have worked together in several films like Kuruthipunal, Mahanadhi and Uttama Villain.
