Kamal Hassan is perhaps India’s most versatile actor. The man began his journey 50 years ago and since then he has gone from strength to strength.
He debuted as child actor along side Gemini Ganesan and caught every one’s attention with a touching performance. Then, became a main-stream hero in his teens. He was quietly mustering up a size able fan base back then.
That is real passion lay in doing meaningful roles, is evident in his focus towards such scripts in later years. In his 30’s Kamal was well and truly on his way towards establishing himself as a credible actor.
His admiration for Sivaji Ganesan further kindled the fire in him. And to this day, Kamal looks up to him, quite literally, as Sivaji is no more.
His success lay in re-inventing himself every once in a while and thereby keeping himself up to date on changing trends.
His performance in “Avvai Shanmukhi”, “Micheal Madan Kamarajan”, “Dasavatharam”, “Unnai Pol Oruvan”, “Devar Magan”, “Pancha Thanthiram” and so many other movies will remain etched in the audiences memory for many years to come.
Here’s a tribute to the man, Kamal Hassan.
