Kamal Haasan and Gautami call it quits
After 13 years of being together, superstar Kamal Haasan and actress and costume designer, Gautami parted their ways. The decision is said to be devastating for both. Gautami herself revealed it to the world on Tuesday via her blogging website.
Actress was recently in news for having met the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi in person but now she is back in limelight with rather saddening news. The actress confirmed the news through her blog post titled, “Life and decisions”. The said reason for the split is their paths being ‘irreversibly diverged’.
The couple initially met on the sets of ‘Apoorva Sagodharargal’ in 1989 but didn’t get married due to not having faith in the institution of marriage. They afterwards got married to different people. Gautami was apparently married to a businessman named Sandeep Bhatia and has a daughter with him, Subbalakshmi who was born in 1999. But, some forces got them back together and the couple started a live-in relationship in 2005.
Gautami admitted that the decision is rather heart-breaking, but she was tired of compromising for the past two years. She also stated that by making the news public, she is not seeking sympathy from anybody, also not blaming the actor.
“I continue to admire and cheer on his monumental talent and achievements… Along with all of his accomplishments to date, I know that there is much more to come from him for his audience and I look forward to applauding those successes,” wrote Gautami in her blog while admitting that she has been a fan of Kamal from always.
The alleged reason for the split is said to be Kamal’s eldest daughter, Shruti Haasan’s tiff with Gautami which was supposedly due to the costumes that the latter designed for her but according to internal sources the quarrel between the two was not new.
