South star Kamal Haasan is having a busy year with him being tied up with back to back commitments on the professional front. The actor is looking forward to the release of his much-delayed film, Vishwaroopam 2. Haasan is busy with the promotions of his upcoming film, Vishwaroopam 2. He is also shooting for the reality show Bigg Boss Tamil 2. Haasan is also looking into politics and is soon to bid goodbye to movies after Shankar’s Indian 2. Well, in an exclusive chat with Pinkvilla, Kamal Haasan confessed that his daughters Shruti and Akshara were unhappy about his decision to quit films.
He said, “they didn’t like it at all. They were very unhappy…specially Shruti. She said what happens to the artist and it is her right to ask because she truly believes that the artist belongs to her. That artist resides in her also. She is proud of her DNA.”
He further added, “I’m just making this decision because there’s a calling. I truly feel from within and that’s why I’m doing this. “
Kamal Haasan also spoke about how his family reacted to his decision to join politics. The actor said, “They were very concerned. They are in love with the father who is an artist and they are proud of it. Now they feel what will happen to that part. I said, there are many things to replay including your memory. I had to convince them this is my calling and I have to go in this direction. Kindly accept that and I’m happy that they are with me. Not necessarily by politically but by the spirit.”
