Chennai : “Indian 2” Director S Shankar has reported Rs 1 crore money related help to the families of the three technicians who lost their lives at the shooting spot prior this month.
In an announcement, Shankar said whatever help is rendered to the families who lost their loved ones (Krishna, Madhu, and Chandran) can’t make up for the loss of their lives.
“In any case, a total of Rs 1 crore will be given to the influenced families by me which might be of small help to them,” he said.
Shankar said more than relief of escaping himself by a whisker, the pain of losing three people is tormenting him. He said he is trying to recover from the shock of the accident and he is not able to digest the accident despite several safety measures taken.
Three technicians — Madhu, Chandran, and Krishna — were killed and 12 others injured after the crane fell on them while constructing the sets at the EVP Film City near here on February 19 night. Movie hero Kamal Haasan, female lead Kajal Aggarwal, as well as Shankar himself, had a providential escape that night.
