Well, it's been 2 days since we heard of Kamal Haasan-Gautami's shocking split. Gautami announced this news through her heartfelt article on her blog, titled Life and decisions. She had then talked about how it was one of the most difficult decisions in her life, and that they had no other alternative before them. This split comes after a 13 year relationship. They began living together in 2005, and both had made it clear back then that neither believed in the institution of marriage
It was in reaction to this split that Kamal Haasan had said this to a leading journalist from Deccan Chronicle "Whatever gives her comfort and solace is fine by me. My feelings at the moment are of no importance. What matters is that Gautami and Subbu should be comfortable and happy. I wish them all the best and want them to know I am there for them whenever they need me. I am blessed with three daughters — Shruti, Akshara and Subbulakshmi. I consider myself the luckiest father in the world.” Few hours later, Kamal Haasan tweeted out in Tamil, saying someone had issued a statement in his name and considered it an inhumane act. While it was assumed the veteran actor was referring to the above quote, that was NOT the reason behind Kamal Haasan's anger. Turns out, an angry fan had written a letter in Tamil, addressing Gautami. It was towards this indecent act on behalf of a fan, that Kamal Haasan had reacted, and NOT the quote. Here's what Kamal Haasan said clarifying this once and for all,“That was in reply to a long indecent letter in Tamil addressed to Gautami ji in my name. The letter tried pitifully to sound like me and used coarse language hooded in archaic Tamil. My twitter reaction was to that letter. I tweeted in Tamil."
This split comes days before Kamal Haasan's 62 birthday on November 7. Shruti Haasan has reportedly kept mum through the split. But several reports point out to an ugly spat between Gautami and her on the sets of Sabash Naidu as the final trigger. Some other reports from a leading daily state, when Kamal Haasan fractured his foot, Gautami didn't inform the daughters earlier, that set off a fight as well. While the reason for the split is unclear, it is saddening to know old friends Kamal Haasan and Gautami could not work things out.
