He stated that he could be giving ₹1 crore as compensation to households of the three who have been killed and to these injured within the accident involving a crane at EVP Film City, on the outskirts of Chennai.
Speaking in regards to the mishap wherein his assistant director was killed, Shankar stated: “The death of Krishna, who joined my team as an assistant director just a month ago, has completely shaken me. Within a few days, Krishna had understood the magnitude of this huge project and excelled in his work.”
He spoke about manufacturing boy Madhu and Chandran from the artwork division — the opposite two who have been killed. “I used to be heartbroken to see Madhu on the mortuary; he at all times stood beside me on the spot and served no matter I requested for, instantly. Knowing that there was work for a month on the units of Indian 2, Chandran had voluntarily come ahead with lots of curiosity. When I got here to find out about his demise, I used to be deeply pained,” he stated.
Mr. Shankar stated that the accident had taken place regardless of the movie crew taking a number of precautions and security measures.
