A day ago, the southern region of India, Tamil Nadu, to be precise, woke up to the sad news of their Chief Minister Jayalalithaa aka Amma’s demise. While the past couple of days were spent in speculations after the actress-politician had taken ill, the confirmation of the same left many in grief. From co-stars in South film industry to juniors to Bollywood, several prominent celebrities’ left condolence messages on social media and one amongst them was Kamal Haasan.
Known for not mincing words, Tamil superstar Kamal Haasan wrote, what can be translated as, “Deep sympathy for those who depend on Jayalalithaa.” Followed by his post the actor started receiving backlash from netizens and supporters of the actress turned politician unleashed their fury by directing messages towards him since they found his comment extremely offensive.
சார்ந்தோர் அனைவருக்கும் ஆழ்ந்த அனுதாபங்கள்.

@ikamalhaasan what's the point in being well learned if there is no decency. Shame I used to be a fan of yours.
