After these two major incidents, he had a minor fire accident at his Chennai residence and was advised to rest for few more weeks by his doctors, which meant resumption to shoot for Sabaash Naidu was not happening soon. It takes a lot for Kamal Haasan to go through all this and yet stay strong. But news from the recent reports seem to be bringing him more trouble.
