Kamal visits KB’s family

Actor Kamal Haasan visited his mentor late K. Balachander’s home to offer his condolences to the departed legend’s family.

The actor wasn’t able to attend the funeral last Wednesday as he was in the United States for the post-production work of Uttama Villain.

“No director has contributed as much as he has to Tamil cinema, in terms of finding and nurturing talents. The extensive time I have spent with them has given me the currency which I use till today. He is incomparable. He made films which made youngsters wonder if they too can make such films. K. Balachander is living inside all of us. It is important for us to continue his good work,” he said.

When asked when Uttama Villain, in which Mr. Balachander will be seen playing a role, is scheduled to release, the actor said it was in the hands of the producer.
