Shruti Haasan wishes dad Kamal Haasan on birthday


Tamil megastar Kamal Haasan turned 62 on Monday, November 7. The veteran actor’s birthday comes barely a week after his partner Gautami Tadmimalla announced their separation after a 13-year-long live in relationship.

Kamal Haasan has appealed to his fans not to celebrate his birthday in view of the hospitalization of Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa, but the actor’s fans, friends and colleagues have been pouring out their wishes on social media.

His elder daughter Shruti Haasan also decided to make her dad’s birthday special. The ‘Welcome Back’ actress took to her Instagram page and posted an endearing photograph of her hugging her dad. Shruti captioned it, “Happy birthday to my darling daddy dearest!!"

Kamal Haasan is considered one of the finest actors of India cinema and has also featured in many Bollywood films including ‘Sadma’, ‘Ek Duuje Ke Liye’, ‘Saagar’, ‘Hey Ram’, ‘Chachi 420’ etc. He also appeared in his own Tamil productions like ‘Virumaandi’, ‘Vishwaroopam’, and also in ‘Dasavathaaram’.

He has been bestowed with the Padma Bhushan for his contributions to art and the prestigious French honour Chevalier of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres.

Kamal Haasan is currently working on his trilingual comedy ‘Sabash Naidu’ which also stars his daughter Shruti, while his younger daughter Akshara is assisting him in direction of the film. The movie is expected to hit the screens next year.
