Trouble, controversies always follow me: Kamal

Actor-filmmaker Kamal Haasan, who is busy promoting forthcoming Tamil release Uttama Villain, has wrestled with so many controversies over the years that he feels they follow him and will continue for the remainder of his career.

“Even till last week, we were fighting a case in connection with my film Papanasam. We know who filed the case, and from where. It’s like trouble and controversies always follow me,” Kamal told IANS here.

“I feel I’m always targeted. It has happened in the past too. For instance, people objected the title of my film Mumbai Express. They said the title wasn’t in Tamil, but what’s the Tamil word for Mumbai? In an earlier case, they didn’t let me name one of my films Sandiyar, and a few months ago, a film with the same name released. Why didn’t anybody object to it,” he asked.

Kamal’s recent release Tamil spy thriller Vishwaroopam was embroiled in controversies after Muslim groups felt they were portrayed in bad light.
