Politician Gifts him a photograph clicked by his nephew as a tribute to ‘Ulaganayagan’
One of the finest actors in Indian cinema Kamal Haasan forayed into politics when he formed his Party Makkal Needhi Maiam in Tamil Nadu in 2018. His party contested in 37 seats in the 2019 Indian general election. Recently, Kamal Haasan created quite a stir when he joined Rahul Gandhi on the latter’s 'Bharat Jodo Yatra'. Later, they both had a candid tete-a-tete, the video of which has since been uploaded on YouTube.
At the outset of the conversation, Rahul Gandhi said, “I have a nephew who’s a photographer. I told him that I was meeting my good friend Kamal Haasan and asked him to give me a picture to gift him that would be a tribute to his persona.”
Saying this, Rahul then walked over and unveiled the photograph he was gifting to Kamal Hassan. It was of a tiger drinking at a stream while staying fully alert to its surroundings. “I think the picture aptly sums up your approach and attitude to life and the fact that you’re a great Indian and a great Tamilian,” said Rahul as he shook Kamal Haasan’s hand.
