Actor Kamal Haasan is the latest celebrity to express solidarity with Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa, who has been in hospital for over a month now. In a commendable gesture, Kamal has asked his fans not to celebrate his birthday amid the chief minister’s health concerns. “In the light of Tamil Nadu chief minister’s health, I request my fan clubs to avoid celebrating my birthday,” Kamal posted on his Twitter handle.
National political leaders, business men and high-profile guests from different walks of life have been expressing solidarity with Jayalalithaa by paying visits to the Chennai hospital, where she is undergoing treatment since September 22.
Born in 1954, Kamal will turn 62 on November 7. Every year, his fan clubs organise blood donation campaigns, cleanliness drives and other social welfare functions to mark the birthday of the Tamil matinee icon.
Kamal entered the film industry as a child artiste when he was just five. And he hasn’t looked back ever since. He is among the most accomplished actors in India, with more than 55 years of experience working in films of different languages and has nearly 200 film titles to his credit. The actor recently won prestigious French honour Chevalier of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres.
Fans celebrated Kamal’s landmark films, Nayahan and Kuruthipunal as they completed 29 years and 21 years, respectively. “Touched by admirers remembering Nayakan & Kurithippunal. Hoping to make you happy in future. Applause gives my life and art more meaning,” Kamal tweeted.
