Versatile actor Kamal Haasan turned 62 today, but there were no celebrations by the actor’s fans following his plea against any revelry, citing the hospitalisation of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalitha.
But the Industry sources said the real reason could be the actor felt it may be awkward to celebrate the occasion as Gautami, his companion for 13 years left him a few days back.
Gautami Tadmimalla, had announced separating from him citing personal differences with him.
Shruti Haasan, the actor’s daughter who also shares screen space with him in the trilingual “Sabash Naidu” was among those who greeted him.
“Happy birthday to my darling daddy dearest,” she wrote on her Twitter page. The multi-lingual actor also linked a Instagram picture of her seen with her father.
Earlier, Haasan had asked his ‘welfare clubs,’ as he defines them, to stay away from any celebrations, keeping in mind Jayalalitha’s health.
Kamal who debuted as a child artiste in Kalathur Kannamma, a Tamil movie in 1959, has acted in more than 200 films in Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam and Hindi. His daughter Shruti and Akshara are now busy artistes.
