Mini Biography :
Kamal Haasan was born on 7th November 1954. In 1960 he starred as a child artist in ‘Kalathoor Kannammaa’, his first movie. Ever since, he has starred in more than 150 movies, in almost all the major Indian languages – Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam and Hindi. His trajectory in the Indian film industry is one prototypical journey, where he started as a child artist, then continued as a romantic hero, and finally evolved into one of the best actors India has ever produced. As most of his movies are in Tamil, he might not have numbers like Amitabh Bachan or the recent stars like Shah Rukh Khan, but very few actors have given such a wide array of versatile performances over the last two decades like Kamal.

He had to occasionally work through the commercial roles and trashy movies to finance the movies he wanted to produce with his heart – but the movies that resulted out of his artistic potential they were in a class apart. 16 Vayadhinilae, Nayakan, Guna, Mahanadhi, Hey Ram and Alavandaan are some of the must-watch among his movies. Had he been a star in Hollywood, he would now be effortlessly rubbing shoulders with extremely talented actors like Jack Nicholson of yesteryears and Tom Hanks of the present day.
