Kamal Haasan underwent knee surgery at Apollo hospital and he is recovering well. His actress daughter Shruti Haasan tweeted about the well-being of her father.

"Thankyou for all your messages of concern and well wishes - my father is doing much better!" the "Rocky Handsome" actress wrote.

Mr Haasan, 61, suffered the fracture due to a fall at his office. He was rushed to the Apollo Hospital in Chennai on Wednesday night.

A medical bulletin from the hospital said, "He underwent surgery. He is stable. He will be in the hospital for next 2-3 days," reported news agency PTI.

A source close to the actor told, "On Wednesday night, he was taking the stairs and he suddenly slipped and lost control. The fall resulted in a minor fracture, but there's nothing to worry. He has been admitted in the Apollo hospital."

Kamal Haasan will miss the London Indian Film Festival this weekend, where he was to be honoured with the Lifetime Achievement Award. "He was supposed to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award at LIFF, which unfortunately he can't attend in this position," the source added.

Meanwhile, South Indian film producer Dhananjayan Govind also tweeted, "Wishing @ikamalhaasan sir a speedy recovery. He is a fittest legend we have & sure will be back in action soon." PTI SSN PSH MVV
