Golden Jubilee year of Kamal Haasan

Vijay TV hosted a function on September 28th to celebrate the Golden Jubilee Year of Kamal Haasan in the film industry. The entire film fraternity including Rajinikanth; Malayalam actors Mammootty, Mohanlal and Jayaram and Telugu stars Chiranjeevi and Venkatesh were present at the event. Speaking at the function, popular yesteryear heroine B Saroja Devi said that Kamal has the acting skills of Sivaji Ganesan and MG Ramachandran’s demeanor. She added that Kamal is an actor who is blessed with natural beauty but does not mind looking gauche in his films.

Sarath Kumar once again stressed that the Eldams Road be named after Kamal Haasan. Director K Balachander said that he knew Kamal would scale newer heights right from the beginning irrespective of whoever introduced him. The highlight of the event was when both Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan walked towards the stage hand-in-hand, which received a standing ovation from the audience. The cultural event was also a part of the show with Prabhu Deva and Shobana organizing a dance show and SP Balasubramaniam, Hariharan and Shruti Kamal Haasan singing some of the Kamal hits. The Nehru Indoor Stadium was bursting at its seams with the who’s who of the film fraternity attending the same.

Few interesting occurrences spiced up the event, like the superstar’s confession about where he learnt acting. In his address, Rajini mentioned that during his earlier days, when he worked with Kamal in KB’s movies, the latter tipped him on how amazing an actor Kamal was and that how Rajini should learn the art from him. “From then on, I started observing Kamal in the sets and began to infuse his flavors in my acting. I learnt Kamal’s nuances when I worked with him and tried to bring it in my performance,” Rajini confessed. He also revealed that he wasn’t comfortable signing up for Robot since the movie was scripted with Kamal in mind. “However, Shankar convinced me that he has made necessary changes and modifications to suit it to my character. Only after deliberations, I decided to take the project,” he added.
