Actor-filmmaker Kamal Haasan recently interacted with his fan Saketh, who has been diagnosed with stage 3 brain cancer. During the video call, a visibly emotional Kamal expressed his solidarity with Saketh and his family.
“I am sure to jump back for my little one, my wife and my family,” Saketh said. “You must,” responded Kamal.
Kamal Haasan also noted that every person is a born winner. “I always say nobody is a loser. Because you were born after winning a battle against 40 million of your brothers. It is a tragedy, but you won. You are destined to win. So keep trying,” Kamal told Saketh during their conversation.
Saketh was also overjoyed to tell Kamal that he calls his son Virumaandi, which is the title of the actor’s iconic 2004 film. Interestingly, Saketh was the name of Kamal’s character in 2000 film Hey Ram.
