A fire broke out at veteran Tamil star Kamal Haasan's residence in Chennai during in the wee hours today, but the actor said he was safe.
Taking to his social media account, the actor informed his fans about his well-being on Saturday morning as he wrote, “Thanks to my staff. Escaped a fire at my house. Lungs full of smoke; I climbed down from the third floor. I am safe, No one hurt. Goodnight.”.



He also thanked his fans for their “love and concern”. The actor wrote, “Thanks for all the love and concern. Now off to sleep. Good night indeed:).” 



He did not mention the cause of fire. 

Kamal is currently mourning the death of his elder brother Chandrahasan who passed away last month after a massive cardiac arrest in London. 

Earlier, Kamal had written on Twitter after his elder brother’s demise, “He (Chandrahasan) was a friend. A good teacher. He was not just my brother but he was also like my father. Because of him, I managed to succeed in my life. I did not even fulfill half of the dreams he saw for me.”

On the work front, Kamal Haasan is all set to resume shooting for his multi-lingual action comedy, Sabash Naidu, now that he has fully recovered from a leg injury which kept him out of action for nearly a year. Kamal fractured his leg after he slipped and fell from the stairs of his office.
