South India

CHENNAI: Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) founder Kamal Haasan will undergo a surgical procedure here on Friday for the removal of an implant placed in his leg after he suffered a fracture in 2016.

According to the report from his party sources, there has been a postponement of the procedure for removal of the implant due to his busy schedule in politics and film commitments.

"However, now upon his doctor's advice Kamal Haasan will be getting admitted in the hospital for the surgical procedure on November 22 to remove the implant”, MNM vice-president Dr R Mahendran said in a statement.

Kamal Haasan had an accident in July 2016, while shooting for the movie Sabash Naidu in the USA, resulting in a compound fracture in his right leg for which he underwent surgery and placed an implant in the leg.

As per the report, he has been compelled to take a break for the next few weeks to physically recoup.
