During a recent press conference actress, Gautami was asked whether she would support her former partner and veteran actor Kamal Haasan if he decides to enter politics. Replying to the query, the lady gave a cryptic response and left those in attendance a bit surprised. She said that everyone has the right to support the right person for a political role.
“Political leadership is a separate issue. We all have the responsibility to support the right person as a political leader,” added the Gautami.
In case you did not know, Gautami and Kamal Haasan had parted ways last year after being together for 13 years. Shortly thereafter, she had taken to the social media and said that the decision would help her be at peace with herself.
“This decision to set forth on my own at this stage in my life is perhaps one of the most difficult decisions any woman will ever have to make but it is a necessary one for me. For I am a mother first and foremost and I have a responsibility to my child to be the best mother that I can be. And to do that, it is essential that I am at peace within myself,” she had added.
On a related note, as far as Haasan is concerned, he is likely to take the plunge soon and add a new dimension to his career. Sometime ago, he had confirmed that he would be launching his own party soon.
So, what do you make of Gautami’s response? Comments, please!
