Chennai: Two days after he underwent a surgery for a leg fracture at a hospital here, iconic Tamil actor Kamal Haasan today said he was on the path of recovery.
“I stood up, sat and soon I will walk and come to thank you all. No words to thank you for your love, yours Kamal Haasan,” he said.
The 61-year old actor tripped from the stairs of his office and suffered a fracture in his right leg here in the wee hours of July 14. He was operated the same day and was advised to be in the hospital for a few days.
Profusely thanking his fans and well wishers for their kind enquiries, the actor said they stand up for him in his moments of trouble even before he does it for himself.
“Be it a mishap or trouble, the love showered by fans, friends and well-wishers is amazing. What else could I say,” he said in a voice message from a private hospital here that has gone viral in social media.
Quipping that he did nothing to deserve so much love, Haasan said he had only reciprocated it by doing myriad roles in movies.
“I am indebted to let you know whatever happens to me, good or bad. Successes and accidents are not strange for me,” he said in chaste Tamil.
He said although he had learnt many lessons by overcoming hurdles but “I forgot to learn a lesson and this accident is proof for it.”
“When thousands of fans and work are waiting, this mishap need not have happened. However, with the help of good medicos and support of my small family, I will get well soon, I will come,” he said.
The actor had recently returned from the US where he had gone to film his latest directorial venture “Sabash Naidu”, a trilingual comedy flick, also starring popular comedians Saurabh Shukla and Brahmanandam.
The “Vishwaroopam” star, who will be seen sharing screen space for the first time with his daughter Shruti Haasan in the film, had taken up direction of the movie after the original director Rajeev Kumar fell ill.
