This horrific update from the crew of Shankar-Kamal Haasan’s Indian 2 is not something we fans wished to hear. Sources revealed that a light set-up on top of a crane fell on the crew who were at the spot. The rope that was used to hold up the set-up gave way, according to reports. Three technicians were killed and as many as 10 people got badly injured.
Identified as Assistant Director Krishna, Art Assistant Chandran, Production Assistant Madhu, the technicians died right at the spot, which shook the entire industry.

I have lost three of my colleagues. More than my pain, the distress of their family members will be many times greater. I participate in their grief. My deepest condolences to them”
