Kamal Haasan trolled over daughter Shruti's old video

Actor turned politician Kamal Haasan has hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons after a 2014 video of his daughter, Shruti Haasan, proclaiming her Iyengar status resurfaced online. The actor is being trolled over his small understanding of caste polity. Well, it all started after a September 2014 interview of Shruti Haasan from the chat show Look who’s talking with Niranjan got viral on social media.

During the funny conversation between the two, Shruti says, “It is because you’re Iyengar and I am Iyengar and we are both creative. And there’s a very high chance that nobody will marry either of us.”

Twitterati alleged Kamal Haasan of double standards and pointed to Shruti’s video for the cause. Kamal Haasan reacted to a query raised by the Twitter handle. He tweeted, “I refused to fill in the caste&religion column in both my daughters’ school admission certificates. That’s the only way it will pass on to the next generation. Every individual should start contributing for progress. Kerala started implementing the same. Those who do should be celebrated.”

One of the users on Twitter wrote, “Your attempts to abolish caste has totally failed sir despite you not filling in the school application. Start your reform at home sir. Not filling in caste is not a solution, bring the kids up in a way they don’t know their caste #Hypocrite.”

Here’s the video for which Kamal Haasan is being trolled for:

On the work front, Kamal Haasan’s highly anticipated Tamil spy thriller Viswaroopam 2 is a film that audience are eagerly waiting to look forward to release. Viswaroopam 2 is a spy-thriller and is a sequel to the 2013 release Vishwaroopam. The film also stars Andrea Jeremiah, Pooja Kumar, and Shekhar Kapoor, the film has music by Ghibran. The first trailer of the film was released recently and it received an immense response.

    This is so wrong and unfair. His daughter seem to just have fun on a talk show and is sharing a laugh with the host (who looks like her close friend). How the f* can people join two and two together..at this rate public figures should stop saying anything in public…oh wait, even then they will be scrutinized as we janta will tell them that their interview was boring.

    Shruti is an adult and her dad is not responsible for what she thinks her identity is. We all don’t always grow up to become the person our parents want us to be. Also her name, as given by her father doesn’t show her caste unlike Niranjan’s name – “Niranjan Iyengar” . A lot of things look ridiculous when taken out of context. She made an innocent and spontaneous observation and didn’t provoke a riot. She didn’t say people of other castes are not intelligent/creative/ smart/don’t deserve to live etc. Arguing on social media is not going to solve society’s inequalities get a life twitter warriors and please demonstrate equality in your actions and not your words!
