"Before various new ailments are endowed upon me, I hasten to clarify that all is well. It is not true that I was injured while shooting," Haasan said in a statement.
"It was a makeup rubber prosthetic that slipped into my nasal passage and had to be carefully removed under medical supervision. It was a stunt scene so I had simulated injuries on the face," he said.
The rumour circulated after Kamal was rushed to a hospital "with a bruised face (and that) led to the interpolated news. I am alright."
Directed by Jeethu Joseph, "Papanasam" is the Tamil remake of Malayalam blockbuster "Drishyam".
