Actor-turned-politician Haasan’s movie being directed by S. Shankar is a sequel to the hit movie ‘Indian’ that also featured the same actor.
The accident happened at EVP Film City near here and also injured nine others.
The three dead were identified as Madhu, Chandran and Krishnan.
According to Saveetha Medical College and Hospital, the three were brought dead to the hospital while 12 others were brought injured.
Condoling the death of the three persons, Haasan in a tweet said the accident is “very cruel” though he had encountered several accidents.
