A few days back Kamal Haasan had taken to Twitter to inform that he had undergone surgery on his leg due to an accident a few years back. The actor had revealed that in continuation to that surgery, he was required to undergo a follow-up surgery and that the doctors have advised him rest till then.

The actor stated that he undertook his professional and political responsibilities superseding the doctors' advice and the love and affection he received from the people of Tamil Nadu was an effective antidote to the severe pain he suffered during the campaign. According to the actor, he would soon undergo the surgery and come back fully rejuvenated within a few days to resume his campaign with renewed vigour.
