All the big shots came and showered their praises on Kamal Hassan today.
Following is just a small transcript  of the function

Vivek : “I hold the record  of not sharing the screen space with Kamal Hassan for a long long time, and he is also holding the same .Its good that it didn’t happen so far because had I acted with him then I’ll be one among the hundred people who acted with him , where as now I can say proudly that I’m on among the thousands and thousands of Kamal fans”
Like every time he came up with a poem, man it was damn good this time also. That guy is having a witty knowledge I tihnk thats why his slapstick comedy is not that famous, cos he is not a ‘no-brainer ‘

Next , dance performance by “Ungalil Yaar adutha Prabhudeva ” team. It was quite good.

Parthiban :  ” I asked the organizers ‘Why  only film people should talk about Kamal,why not his fan’ and they said’ then you please go and talk ‘ .. well I’m here . The problem is Intelligent people are Kamal’s followers, so I’ve to prove that i’m also  intelligent”

Director Shankar: ” During the shooting of Indian ,I prepared myself very well before each shot ,because I’d the fear that Kamal will ask some question in the shot and will become unhappy if I dint reply him properly,but luckily he dint ask any questions, after the shooting was over one of my assistant who was close with Kamal went to him and asked ‘Sir, we expected atleast some place you will interfere us , but why you dint do that ?” he replied ‘ you people were doing your work properly ‘.I’m really happy to hear that.. Thanks Kamal”

Sruthi Hassan then dedicated a song to Kamal (Nee partha paarvaikku .. Hey ram) , but I wonder wh she changed the tempo of that song so badly , for other songs it worked, may be this particular song dint go well with that Tempo .

Prakash raj : ” If you fall down from sky, fall as a seed, then you can grow tearing the soil apart ,Kamal had done it , I got national award for best actor this year,national award for an actor in year you can get it even if U act in one good movie where as if there is any award that has to be given for century actor then it should be given to you sir.Hats-off ”

Ramesh Aravind : “I acted 4 movies with Kamal , one in Kannada remake of sathileelavathi , which I directed,Kamal had donned  the similar role what he had done in Tamil,but in Kannada he asked me for tough accent ,like the Kongu accent he used in the original movie, then I said Hubli accent, Kamal used Hubli accent so perfect  that even the real Hubli people cant differentiate him ”

Venkatesh : ” In my college days in Chennai I used to enjoy his movie … ”

Mammooty : “Kamal and I are right now tied in the national award winning race with 3 each, lets see who is gonna first win it…. ”

Mohanlal: “Over all it was really a pleasant crowd to see”(I missed his part mostly )

Illayaraja: Came and sung a song, nice one, and also said “Kamal may not believe in God, but God believe in Kamal”

Arjun :”He came to Kuruthi punal after some operations even after that he performed his stunts so well , so I ‘ve tell that he is real action King”

Prabhudeva and his father performed a dance for Kamal

Yugi sethu’s special touch was missing today , I dono , he invited Rajinikanth to talk

Rajinikanth :Like the Climax in Kuselan , Rajinikanth delivered a emotional speech(Vasu Impact…  🙂 )
“During Avargal shooting I went out , then KB sir came and asked me ‘where you went out, for smoking? go and see Kamal’s acting scenes inside the set,then atleast you will learn some thing’ .People like Mamooty ,Venkatesh,Mohanlal or even Amitabh Bachan, Rajkapoor and all wondered how come a guy like me famous in the cine field where Kamal is acting , my reply was ‘I learnt acting  from him directly'”.

“In 1975 Kamal hassan was more famous than what he is now, at that time I was entering into Cine industry, and Kamal recommended my name for the movie ‘Ilamai oonjaladugiradhu’ , like I said Kamal was very famous, he could ‘ve easily told any director/producer that dont put Rajini in my movie, instead he recommended my name”.

“Later when our movies where very famous, Kamal came and told me ‘Rajini this is the time , we should go in separate ways here after as this Cine industry is having the tradition of giving the movies which we can do together, so there wont be any Identity for us’.I follow what he tells me, we separated and then I also became famous, because I dint take the route what he has taken, I know I cant win him, so I used my brain taken a different route,I succeeded in it as well”.

“Kamal used to tell me ‘Rajini ,Sivaji and MGR are not enemies but Cine Industry and their fans created enmity between them,so we have to make sure that, it shouldn’t happen to us,You work with the directors, producers, technicians whom I work with , I’ll do the same for the producer, director whom u work under’, we are still following it ”

“Everyone knows that Endhiran (Robot) was made for Kamal Hassan , but later because of date problems Kamal couldn’t do it, so director Shankar came to me I told him ‘Sir,you’ve written the script with Kamal in mind, so don’t expect me act like him ‘ he replied ‘ sir Am I such an Idiot?,I’ve made enough changes in script for you ‘ 🙂 .Later when we started shooting the movie, some shots went up to 7 or 8 takes but Shankar wont show any reaction, so I called him again and said ‘Sir please erase from your mind it is me acting in the movie and not Kamal Hassan’ ”

Welll Rajini did justice to his Kuselan role in real life as well. Rajini and Kamal proved that bid people are always big people 🙂

It really was so touching .

Then finally the Man himself came and said lotta thanks and sorry he received all  the love from audience.. and gave a special Peck to Rajinikanth ..
All I can say was he was visually moved..
